Mason has long possessed one of the Christian music community's most compelling voices.
Mason has long possessed one of the Christian music community's most compelling voices. Here she puts that glorious instrument to use on a great collection of songs that is unlike anything ever attempted in the Christian market. Timeless is filled with big-band sounds and breezy, jazzy arrangements, and it's laced with lush strings—as well as tasteful piano and plenty of lively horns—for a delightful retro feel. Although she may have sunk her considerable vocal chops into new musical territory, lyrically Mason is still singing the same tune—songs about faith, love, and grace. Written by Mason and Anita Renfroe, "You Have a Way With Words" is a beautiful ballad about the Bible, while Mason's self-penned "After All This Time" celebrates longtime marital bliss. Other highlights include "Play It Again," "In a Perfect World," and the title cut. Contact: 615-383-5535—DEP
