LINE UP

JANETTE MASON Piano/Keys

CHRIS MORRIS Drums

TOM MASON Bass

 

JANETTE MASON toured extensively throughout the 90s with artists like Oasis, Pulp and Robert Wyatt. Her latest project, Red Alert, showcases her unique contemporary compositions. Drawing on her wide-ranging influences from Dave Brubeck to David Bowie and Herbie Hancock to Goldfrapp, she combines interesting timescapes and modern beats with a cinematic texture. Her vision is brought to life by the explosive combination of Chris Morris on drums and Tom Mason on Bass and is a direct musical response to the political and social challenges now facing us all – hence the name Red Alert.

Janette’s powerful and rhythmic approach to the piano is subtly fused with synthesizers to create a musical journey that is as engaging as it is thought provoking. Her music has been described as similar to E.S.T and The Bad Plus.
