Ian Mason

Born 1950 in Nagambie, Victoria, raised in Shepparton, Australia, Ian started to play Piano from age 5 and completed 11 years of classical piano also learning drums at 10 and guitar and bass.
He was lead vocalist (who can sing ‘em all with a four-octave range) and keyboardist for many bands during the 60’s winning Battle of the Bands with “Strine” and local Talent Quests as a solo vocalist and National New Faces (the equivalent of Australian Idol today) with his boyhood friends in “Rave”. During 1972-1980 when he lived in Melbourne he became the highest paid most demanded session-musician/singer in Australia playing or singing on 11 number one hits.
He played with Kush-achieving Hall Of Fame status with the Musician’s Union and formed and led his own band “Mason’s Cure” still remembered today as an original music legend. He was also asked to tour with Little River Band and David Bowie.
Ian was also Musical-Director/Arranger/Songwriter for many Australian & International Artists.
Ian was also one of the most prolific writers of Advertising Music and amongst literally thousands of Jingles and Sound-Design tracks wrote the music for the most successful advertising campaign in the world (still to this day)- The Big M Flavoured Milk Campaign.
Ian is a Musical Pioneer of the Byron Bay area and owned and operated “The Music Farm” at Coorabell on the ridge overlooking the bay from 1980-1992. It was the first State of the Art Recording Studio outside the Capital cities in its time and was one of the major four studios of the same technical capability in Australia.
All the popular bands and touring acts of the time recorded at the studio and enjoyed Music Farm’s live-in accommodation and 120 acres of rainforest including the most beautiful waterhole swimming area.
No expense was spared with the studio built by local craftsmen from Rosewood and with acoustic design by the leading Audio Engineer in Australia-Mr. John Sayers; The Music Farm was not only beautiful technically but aesthetically as well. It produced many hits.
During and since The Music Farm Ian has been fortunate to travel the world working with some of the world’s finest Musicians including members of Toto, The Doobie Brothers and Pink Floyd. Also to hone his Production skills at some of the finest studios in the world -working in one of the most exclusive-Stevie Wonder’s “Wonderland” meeting Stevie and being his guest in Las Vegas and Australia.
Ian still composes Feature Film Scores and Music for Television, Radio and Advertising, writes songs and Produces recordings.
Ian at present as Writer/Producer/Composer is Producing his first Feature Film “Bluey & Curly Go To Rio”-a Feel-Good Action-Adventure Musical Comedy. The Film is a cross-between “The Blues Brothers” and “Crocodile Dundee!”
Ian is also Producer of a Television Series:-“Greatest Trials-That Never Were!” with David Galbally QC as Host.
