Mason Douglas on SoundBetter

Nashville pro/hit songwriter and vocalist, specializing in contemporary vocal styles, a la Dierks Bentley or Keith Urban vibes. Pop/Rock background, as well

Hey y'all, it's Mason - thanks for checking out my page and I'd love to work with you on your project! On the sample track to the right, all tracks are produced, written, and mixed by me, with my vocals on the first 4 (cowriter Christie Huff on the 5th). I've done literally hundreds of demos and artist projects here in Nashville, with lead vocals as well as backgrounds. I cover a wide range of styles from "traditional with a twang" all the way through more Pop and polished sounds - it's your choice! All vocals can be tuned, as well as edited and aligned for the project. I'm also happy to mix them into your existing track, as an option. Please contact me with any questions. Thanks again for checking things out!

Click the 'Contact' above to get in touch. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    If you're looking for top-notch, authentic country vocals, Mason is as good as it gets. He's a gifted vocalist with a natural instinct for what the song requires. His vocals are rich, emotional, and bring a true story-telling vibe to the project. On top of all that, he's a total pro with A+ skills in communication. I'd hire him again in a second!

    Mason, once again, delivered fantastic tracks and made my song sound better than I’d imagined. He took the couple of notes I had, executed and turned them around very quickly. His professionalism is exemplary - I’m glad he was able to do this song - I look forward to doing more with him in the future. Strong voice, great harmonies, excellent work.

    Mason is a true pro. All it took was a few file transfers and an a paragraph. A few days later I had exactly what I was looking for. Excellent work and an awesome ad lib to accentuate his great tone.

    Mason nailed the vocal track and turned around the parts in just a few days. His files were very clean and fit my mix nicely. Will definitely have him sing another demo again. If you're looking for a Dierks or Kenny sound he's your guy!

    Mason was very professional as well as patient with the process of communication I had to do back and forth with my producer/writing partners, due to covid circumstances tossing a wrench in things. Would definitely work with him again!

    Mason is a consummate professional. He helped adjust the key to bring it into his wheelhouse, all to better the end product. His stems are stellar, even with the requested pitch bends and blue notes, everything was spot on. Love working with him, and this project is no exception.

    Mason has a fantastic voice and is smart. He handled our complex request, unfinished soundtrack and unrefined vision easily and with patience. We are very happy with his contribution and the result! Thank you Mason!

    Mason consistently delivers excellent tracks, tight harmonies, and great energy. Rarely are there pickups or tweaks, but when there are any, he nails them. His approach is to give you back the guide track, but elevated to another level due to his vocal skill, professionalism and great communication. Hopefully we can do some more together.

    Mason keeps delivering stellar tracks - so my reviews may start sounding repetitive. His vocal arrangements emulate the guide vocals perfectly - until they don’t, and they’re even better. I appreciate his efficiency and attention to detail. He has done another great job adding flourishes and a country twang to my demo.

    Mason was fantastic following the guide track, but embellishing where and when I requested - he has a great voice and killer harmonies.

Anyone would be in great hands hiring Mason for there songs. He also delivered more than I expected and that is a very rare but notable trait in this day and age. Thank you, Mason, for knockin it out of the stadium!

    Totally professional experience with Mason, he's an extremely pleasant guy with great communication and he let me know time frames for deliveries which is always appreciated. Equally importantly, the vocals are world class, he has a fantastic voice and a very nice recording chain, the files he sent back are a pleasure to work with!

    A good singer is easy to find. A great singer who understands music, production, and the art of crafting songs is rare. Mason is that rare find; a guy who’s experience and passion will take your project to the next level. We’ve worked together on many projects over the years, and I’ll never hesitate to work with him again in the future!

Interview with Mason Douglas

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: I have an in-home studio with Pro Tools 2020 running on an iMac, interfaced with a UAD Apollo and vocals piped through an AKG 414c. Some of the fun toys that make the projects are resonator/baritone/Nashville-tuned acoustics, Telecaster/Stratocaster/Gibson Les Paul electrics, a Native Instruments Maschine, and thousands of sound and programming option.

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: What I like most about being a producer and in the music industry is the independence. I have a new boss with every client, I get to be my most creative self, and my "cubicle" kicks ass - it's a great (and fortunate!) position to be in.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Philip Pence for bass and mixing needs....Greg Strizek for editing and mixing...Kris Bradley for vocals and production. Close friends that I respect and love.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: To get the project even better than you original imagined it!

  9. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  10. A: I would suggest making sure there's communication about how on the nose you'd like to stay to the melody and phrasing. Staying right on it is no problem whatsoever but if you have an open mind for some variation, that's great to know so that I/we can experiment a little with the approach. Makes it interesting for everyone!

  11. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  12. A: I've been a professional musician and songwriter for nearly 10 years in Nashville - I was on an indie label with major distribution and was able to do an album and tour before landing a publishing deal, getting a few cuts, and developing a feel for how the industry works. Nowadays, I continue to write and work with aspiring artists in town, as well as cowriter and produce commercial releases.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: That it's quick and easy. It is not. But it's worth it.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: What are some references, both in vocal style and instrumentation, that you'd like your track to emulate? Are there any looming deadlines?

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?

  18. A: I would love to write with/track with/hang with Counting Crows. I think their collective interpretations of Adams lyrics into some classics would be amazing to watch. There are dozens of others that would be surreal but that'd be the top one.

  19. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  20. A: Practice makes perfect! Practice, practice, practice...then practice some more. That's the true secret, no matter how much we don't want to believe it.

  21. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  22. A: The most common work that I do in the industry is track production and vocals, both of my own material as well as client projects. I specialize mainly in the Country and Pop but have also heavy experience in Rock and Hip Hop, both in tracks as well as vocal projects.
