Dave Mason: Alone Together Again
Dave Mason: Alone Together Again
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason will revisit his classic 1970 masterpiece Alone Together on his new ‘Alone Together Again’ US tour. As one of America’s most beloved classic rock albums, Alone Together – Mason’s debut solo album – is represented on eight timeless tracks that are as satisfying and inspiring now as they were when they were released 46 years ago.

Along with his band members Johnne Sambataro, Alvino Bennett and Tony Patler, the tour will feature singer extraordinaire Bekka Bramlett, daughter of Delaney and Bonnie, the celebrated duo who toured with Mason in the 1970s and had a #2 national hit with “Only You Know and I Know.”

The ‘Alone Together Again’ show will include fan favorites like “All Along the Watchtower” and “Feelin’ Alright,” in addition to the album’s classic songs. Photos and firsthand autobiographical commentary will complement the guest experience, making this series of performances by a living classic rock legend of one of rock n roll history’s most significant albums a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Best known for his soulful voice and unsurpassed guitar playing, Dave Mason was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of the group Traffic, and continues performing as a solo artist with sold-out shows all over the world. His career spans several important rock eras, and encompasses his work as a producer, performer, songwriter, and consummate guitarist. A quintessential rock star, Mason has collaborated with numerous members of music elite, including Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, and many more.

As well as favorites from their collective catalogue, Marti Jones & Don Dixon, along with Jim Brock (their long-time percussionist) will be playing songs from Marti’s new, yet to be released album, "You're Not The Bossa Me,” which features 12 brand new songs.

Don Dixon is considered to be one of the key producers of what is called the jangle pop movement of the early 1980s. He spent thirteen years as a member of NC cult heroes Arrogance. Around 1983, Dixon attracted attention by co-producing with Mitch Easter, R.E.M.'s landmark debut LP Murmur. He then spent several years producing the work of varied artists including Chris Stamey (formerly of The dB's) and The Smithereens. Considered to be a highlight of this period was Tommy Keene's Run Now EP (co-produced with T Bone Burnett). This success led to Dixon recording his solo debut Most of the Girls Like to Dance (But Only Some of the Boys Like To), a further affirmation of his love of classic pop melodies and spiky, Nick Lowe-inspired wordplay.
Marti Jones

Marti Jones first emerged as the front-woman of the group Color Me Gone before issuing her solo debut Unsophisticated Time -- produced by future husband Don Dixon -- in 1985. She has since released numerous records but has focused much of her creative energy on painting, under the name Marti Jones Dixon.
