Where Do the Children Go
The Mason family live in a small town in North Texas. Merritt and Cristie are childhood sweethearts and have been performing together since they were 13. They married a year after high school and moved to many different places (Spain, Washington, Maine, Alaska, Kansas, Florida, Arizona, and Texas!!) due to Merritt's work. Through their many and varied experiences in life, they began to write music together and performing it in the numerous places they have lived. Joshua and Gabriel, their two sons, soon began joining in on the fun, helping to write lyrics even before they learned to play guitars. Joshua adds an innovative lead guitar and Gabriel keeps the undertone going with a great bass. Both boys love to play the drums as well. Coming from a diverse background of musical genre, The Masons enjoy and utilize a wide range of style, touching on classical, country, rock, blues, praise, and traditional gospel. The lyrics are based upon life experiences of family, friends, and Biblical principles that relate to everyday living, transcending denominational boundaries.
