Ray Mason

“Ray and his road-worn 1965 Silvertone guitar have been tirelessly touring since 1982.

Starting his first band in 1966 and averaging over 100 shows a year, he’s like a teenager with forty-plus years of experience!
Ray Mason‘s tunes follow no trend while keeping an upward slide on the songwriting scale.

It’s rock with the roll! One man with his Silvertone!”

“Throwback” to a time when songwriters did not “woo” listeners with familiar covers while slipping their own works in between

but believed in their songs enough to allow them to stand on their own…. that’s The Podunk Throwbacks.

Songwriter, Todd Skilton, combines life experience with jazz, rock, country, folk & classical influences,

providing a little something for everyone to relate to.

The pair hop along on an adventure through the bayous to seek the help of a powerful voodoo priestess.
