Listen here to music productions of the late Derek J. Mason, a world class guitarist, known by his friends and clients as Derek Mason. Derek was also a skilled multi-instrumentalist who worked passionately as a music producer, composer, arranger, virtual orchestration specialist and recording engineer. Dearly missed by his friends, family and clients, Derek produced music for independent artists and his own creative endeavors. Hear his “Song Productions” for vocal artists on the page sidebars or with mobile phones via lower-right screen “Open Sidebar” link. Our site menu and in-page links provide pathways to more of his musical creativity. Derek was detailed and very dedicated, especially when producing emerging artists.
Although Derek Mason was known within his closer music circles for his Progressive Rock guitar wizardry, especially with the rock fusion group, First Aid, he was remarkably skilled in many genres of the guitar: Electric, Acoustic, Flamenco, Rock Fusion and Jazz — on electric, acoustic and nylon string instruments. He was also remarkably good on 5-string bass groove, as well as at drum programming. Derek’s extensive musicality is so evident here in the Song Productions playlist** to the left and in the Instrumentally brilliant Blues & Jazz and Composition pages. His softer side is evident in Derek’s Classical-Jazz nylon string guitar original pieces. Listen to some below or on the dedicated page for some of his signature acoustic guitar work.
