"Bryon Chase"

"I recently was honoured to be a part of the Canadian Forces northern tour and share the stage with Bryon Chase.
His original songs are on a par with any of the great Canadian folk artists and his renditions in the classic Celtic genre are played and sang with an exhuberance and passion rarely seen in even the most seasoned performer." - Andrew White


self titled debut 2011



Deserted CN railway shops, muddy river banks, the echos of battlegrounds on the marshes and the familiar sounds of Acadie bind the members of Mason’s Tender to their New Brunswick home. All of mixed French and English background - Mason’s Tender also performs a mix of East Coast traditional, roots, folk and country based songs forged from a shared passion of place.

Eager to profile the stories of the Miramichi River, and the industries of old, steamers, loggers, fisher folk and builders brought to New Brunswick by The Irish, English, Scots and French - the band found that most stories reflected the experiences of the other Maritime provinces but for some reason not their own.

Since then fronted by two-time ECMA nominee Bryon Chase (Banshee), the group has gone to pen originals depicting stories too good to let go down that river. New Brunswick has just as colourful a past from rum runners to the expulsion and they’re the band to share it. The grittier the better.

Mason’s Tender has performed for over 5 years throughout The Maritimes, a favourite at The Old Dublin and Old Triangle as well as corporate and festivals. From the New Brunswick Highland Games to Miramichi Irish Festival, the group combines East Coast flavour with a penchant for storytelling.

Chase has 3 previous releases to his credit (Banshee) and an appearance on a Warner Records compilations (Atlantic Standards II), has music credits on ED’s UP TV show with Barenaked Ladies Star Ed Robertson and has toured extensively through US and Canada including to the North Pole (Alert NWT) as part of a military show tour. This is Mason’s Tenders first full length recording and it is available in stores throughout Atlantic Canada.
