New York-born, Massachusetts-bred singer/songwriter Willy Mason has a busy summer planned, as he will be joining Mumford and Sons on their Gentlemen of the Road festival tour.
Mason came into 2013 on a roll, too, with the December 2012 release of his third album Carry On.
Mason recently stopped by the Gretsch Showroom in London to perform a few songs from that record, and his distinctive voice lends itself well to accompaniment from his Gretsch Electromatic guitar.
Watch Mason perform ”Into Tomorrow” and “I Got Gold” in the videos below and visit his official website for more information.

Through releases on Avant!, Bathetic and Clan Destine, King Dude has married Pagan symbolism and folk music. His latest album, Love, was released in 2011.

Eleven of the cherry and black Gretsch Electromatic G5103 CVT III guitars that were used in OK Go’s viral “Needing/Getting” music video are now available for purchase.
In the video, which first aired during Super Bowl XLVI and currently has over 18,000,000 views on YouTube, the band played their song by driving a van through a complex set up of instruments forming a chain reaction of sounds.
Gretsch was represented by 288 guitars used in the video, and the 11 available models feature wear marks and have been preserved in their dusty “as is” condition.
One of the 50 G5222 Electromatic amps used in the music video also comes with the packages, as well as a Fender cord, a letter of authenticity signed by each member of the band and the president of Gretsch guitars, and a photo of the guitars taken on set while making the video.
Pick up your “Needing/Wanting” Gretsch package here. Proceeds will support the Fender Music Foundation’s mission to provide music education to children and adults across the country.
