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.

    Take it from someone who has put a roof over their head plus put 2 kids through college solely by making music for over 3 decades, Mason is a stud. In my opinion, when it comes to singers, 99% of the time they either got it or they don’t. Mason’s got it.

    Another amazing three songs. The leads were thoughtful and poignant. His tuning was on point! And the harmonies were such a great extra bonus. Thanks again for another great job Mason!

    Can I give 10 stars? Mason is true pro and has great instincts as far as rhythm and phrasing. Pitch was spot on, but he still provided "tuned" WAV files as well. Turnaround time was great and he was even able to get it to me sooner than the deadline, which I really appreciated. Super easy to work with. Will think of Mason first for my next male vocal project. Thanks Mason! Your vocals completely transformed the song and I couldn't be happier with the result.

    Mason was amazing at capturing my vision for the song. He was patient with me and took the time to understand my vision. I highly recommend Mason for any music project as he has the versatility to hit the right note for your project. We will be starting another project.

    Mason rocks! Despite technical issues (on my end) Mason pulled things together and delivered on time — and on “vibe”!

    Mason did an amazing job!! Totally nailed the vibe and what I was looking for when it came to vocals for my song. Vocals sounded great, super clean, gave me everything I needed to make the track pop. Prompt work.

    If you enjoyed his vocal samples, you'll be glad you reached out and worked with Mason!

    Mason completed his vocals before his quoted time, and did a great job on the vocals. On top of the great vocal, the tracks were recorded extremely well and levels were perfect. Would not hesitate to work with him again.

    Mason is a complete pro and I had no changes. He even got one song done not feeling well and it made the song! Look forward to working with him again very soon.

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.
