At the tender age of 19 years old, Mason Hope has already established himself as a singer-songwriter and Sunshine Coast arts and cultural ambassador. With a tone compared to Guy Sebastian and Dan Sultan he has a talent to cross genres from blues, rock, country and soul.
In 2016, Mason won Voice of Urban at just 17 years old. In that same year, he also took out the Gympie Music Muster Talent search and was a featured vocalist in Creative Generations, which was televised on Channel Ten.
One year later Mason brought home the trophy for the Trans Tasman Entertainer of the Year which was held on Norfolk Island.
Last year he performed on The Voice Australia and this week he was awarded the Gold Medallion Media Award for the New Talent of the Year.
The road ahead seems to be very bright for this multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. He’s performed at the big festivals, he’s had support spots for the big names like Russell Morris, Christina Anu, Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows and has been on the bill with Troy Cassar-Daley, Fanny Lumsden Diesel and Travis Collins.
With a new single and video “Like a Hurricane” and a documentary episode on his life on “Out Loud” Mason is one rising star that is set for the stratosphere.
If you want to catch his amazing talent, he’s playing at Tewantin Noosa RSL on Thursday 31 January in the South Bar from 6pm.
