Featured Artist of the Week: Sean Mason & Tyra Scott

Born and raised in Charlotte, NC, Sean Mason taught himself by ear how to play the piano at the age of 13. His beginning musical roots included Gospel, Classical, Hip-Hop, and R&B music, but then he discovered jazz and decided to make a career of it. In his short but already groundbreaking career, Sean has played and toured with many jazz professionals, prominently including Branford Marsalis and Wynton Marsalis, but among many others. Sean is based in New York City, and aside from being a sideman member of many successful jazz bands around the city, Sean leads his own band, “The Sean Mason Trio”, which performs and tours across the globe. In addition to his performing career, Sean is also a composer, orchestrator, and music director in the musical theatre space.

Tyra Scott, a dynamic vocalist, continues to gain attention for her superb musicianship and genre-blending style. As a native of Durham, North Carolina, Scott’s childhood immersion in music and art are truly evident, producing a melting pot of colors and sonic dimensions, that are all her own. Like many in the south, Tyra’s gospel music upbringing, paved the way for a totally unique approach to the idioms of jazz, samba, and pop music alike. With a voice that is often described as, angelic, spellbinding, and pure, listeners are invited to take their own unforgettable journeys throughout the delivery of each song. Tyra is a 2018 Vocal Performance graduate of North Carolina Central University, having shared the stage with artists such as Branford Marsalis, Take 6, Lalah Hathaway, and Nnenna Freelon. In addition to her stage performances, Scott’s passions stretch into the fields of musical theater, songwriting, and music production.
