CLEARWATER – Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam makes a stop Friday, Feb. 21, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St. Tickets start at $49. Call 791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, songwriter and legendary guitarist has been making music since the age of 18 when he teamed up with fellow British native Steve Winwood to form the band Traffic.

Since then he has penned dozens of hits such as “Feelin’ Alright” and “We Just Disagree.” He has been linked with numerous other members of rock and roll elite, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, Ron Wood and Mama Cass Elliot. Mason has been performing to sold-out audiences for years and has sold millions of recordings worldwide.

Mason’s solo studio albums include “Alone Together” (1970), “Dave Mason & Cass Elliot” (1971), “Headkeeper” (1972), “It’s Like You Never Left” (1973), “Dave Mason” (1974), “Split Coconut” (1975), “Let It Flow” (1977), “Mariposa De Oro” (1978), “Old Crest on a New Wave” (1980), “Two Hearts” (1987), “Some Assembly Required” (1987) and “26 Letters – 12 Notes” (2008).

Prior to his solo career, Mason’s involvement with Traffic resulted in the studio albums “Mr. Fantasy” (1967), “Traffic” (1968) and “Last Exit” (1969), as well as the live album “Welcome to the Canteen” (1971).

In 2014, Mason is on the road with an exciting new project billed as Dave Mason’s Traffic Jam. The tour kicked off Jan. 3 in Atlantic City, N.J., and will continue through the rest of the year.

The “Traffic Jam” concert features hits and deep album cuts from 1967’s “Mr. Fantasy” and 1968’s “Traffic” albums and additional Traffic jams plus new material and classic Dave Mason music.

According to a press release from the Mitch Schneider Organization, the artist’s publicist, Mason plans to release a new EP titled “Futures Past” in 2014. The EP will feature new versions of his classic songs plus new material that he has written and performed on tour over the last few years. The EP will be available online at www.davemasonmusic.com and at Mason’s live shows.

“I think that it is important to keep alive the legacy of four young men from the heartland of England and their contribution to contemporary music,” Mason said in a press release. “And Traffic Jam – aside from the obvious material – will hopefully grow into the basis for other artists to participate. Keep the spirit alive.”
