Both Sides Of The Bar: Jojo Mason Album Review

Jojo Mason exudes the kind of energy that most of us wish we could summon on demand… and that all of us would benefit from having around us all the time.

And there may be no better representation of that energy, and the love that pours out of this dude, than his brand new album, Both Sides Of The Bar.

Note: Jojo Mason also gives really good hugs. And they also do a great job of showing his energy and love for life.

Both Sides Of The Bar is the debut full-length album from the Regina, Saskatchewan born hockey player turned country musician. And with 10 tracks playing from start to finish, it’s a solid collection of songs that will allow for the appreciation of both a few drinks and a good time, and (as we’ve heard some people are choosing) a special dance on a wedding day.

I’ve had the chance to sit and gladly listen to Both Sides Of The Bar (on repeat) over the last few days, and I’ll confess, I probably could have written this post with fewer listens… but this record is a lot of fun, and it’s exciting to think about the results that Jojo Mason is going to experience from the fans, industry, and live audiences when these songs are pumping through the speakers.

Some of the tracks on the album will be familiar to Mason’s fans and country radio listeners. 2015 and 2016 singles, It’s All Good, Good Kinda Love, Red Dress, and Made For You lead the charge, and fit perfectly with the new tracks presented to fans, included the newest single, and lovey-dovey jam, Something To Wrap My Heart Around.

This album truly is a pleasure to listen to. The 10 songs clock in at about 33 minutes or so, and it flies by. And like I mentioned before, it’s an easy album to start again and enjoy on a repeat listen.

Jojo Mason’s voice continues to grow, and with an attitude and live presence that is already worth the price of admission, this album, and whatever comes next for the country singer will only serve to push him higher. And that’s good news for all of us, because it will mean more Jojo Mason songs.

Now, I don’t usually pick out favourite songs on albums when I’m doing reviews, but I would be flat out lying if I said I didn’t sing along to Made For You every time it comes through my headphones or speakers, and the title track, Both Sides Of The Bar is hitting me in the feels with every spin as well. Take that info and use it however you’d like!
