Up and coming American singer songwriter Willy Mason paid a visit to Mark Seaman's afternoon show recently at BBC Radio Wiltshire ahead of his local gig in Marlborough.
Willy took the music world by storm a couple of years ago with his first album, 'Where The Humans Eat' and his latest CD release, 'If The Ocean Gets Rough' looks set to confirm his status as a real name to watch out for.

Willy has been in the UK promoting his new album as part of his current tour. He has played in England before - appearing in 2005 at the Glastonbury Festival which he described as a fantastic experience.
At home in America, Willy lives on the picturesque island of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, and counts his parents as two of the main influences for his music.
They were both performers when Willy was growing, and now along with his brother Sam, Willy looks set to continue the family tradition of travelling musical troubadours.
