Willy Mason: If The Ocean Gets Rough
Artist Willy Mason
Album If The Ocean Gets Rough
Label Astralwerks
Released 3/20/2007
If The Ocean Gets Rough is filled with eleven of Willy's best songs to date, some immediately direct, others more subtle and evocative. With more developed and ambitious songwriting and instrumentation, Mason joins personal tales with socio-cultural commentary, effortlessly expressing his own experiences while making them our own.

The album was recorded mostly in North Brookfield,Massachusetts at Long View Farm, a studio more notable for its livestock than its acoustics. Willy invited friends and family to hang out, bring instruments, cook meals, ride horses, shoot pool and on occasion he had to throw them all out of the studio so he could concentrate and get some work done.
