Hezekiah Jones is the musical nom de plume for Raphael Cutrufello and a band of like-minded musicians crafting alternative folk music. His catalog of songs sometimes sounds like a post-apocalyptic White Album, as covered by Sufjan Stevens. The biting, sometimes campy vibe only serves to intensify the blow of his sucker-punch ballads. Songs are filled with outlandish characters, imagined landscapes, ringing harmonies, and baroque instrumental flourishes, but never disconnect from the tangible feelings at their center. -Peter Marinari, CBS Philadelphia
"Bluegrass musicianship meets jam-band exploration, delivered with a self-confident Philly attitude." Joe Hudak, -Rolling Stone. It's that raw energy that connects Mason Porter with their audience every time. They play a style of American music that's unique in many ways; traveling in the borderlands of folk-rock, bluegrass, jam and pop. The band has the ability to combine the earthy, Appalachian instruments with more urban appeal. With a dance-able vibe, an energetic live show and fresh approach to improvisation, Mason Porter and its growing community finds itself at home everywhere they go.
