WinterStorm are delighted to welcome Mason Hill back to the Main stage in Troon for the 2021 line up. The band will be returnign to Troon to treat you with their classic rock n roll passion.
With an average age of 25, Mason Hill is on a steep upward progression. This award winning band has supported Inglorious, Airbourne and Gun, made festival appearances at Download,Planet Rockstock, TRNSMT and Steelhouse, and played their own sold out headline shows atThe Cathouse, The Garage and King Tuts.
This is a band very much in demand! The Scottish quintet's brand of Modern Hard Rock results in a batch of uncompromising riffs accompanied by anthemic sing along choruses and stadium friendly ballads. Their high energy live shows impress wherever they play, and they display the swagger and confidence of a band that has being doing it for more than twenty years.
In 2008 two school friends, vocalist Scott Taylor and lead guitarist James Bird, acted on their musical chemistry and hooked up to write songs. The duo found success, winning the Scottish section of the European battle of the bands Surface Festival competition. This led to a performance at the O2 in London, but more importantly, planting seeds of what the future may hold.
With appetites well and truly whetted, Taylor and Bird formed Mason Hill in 2013 with drummer Craig McFetridge being the first to join the ranks. After a few personnel changes, bassist Matthew Ward settled into the role in 2015, with guitarist Marc Montgomery completing the line-up in 2016-allowing Taylor to concentrate solely on vocals.
Mason Hill spent the next few years "learning their craft" on stages up and down the UK.This included high profile shows supporting the likes of Graham Bonnet (Rainbow), Snakecharmer (feat. ex-Whitesnake, Thunder & Wishbone Ash members), Toseland, Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent, The Dead Daisies) and Stone Broken.
All of us are looking forward to welcoming Mason Hill to the WinterStorm 2021 stage and a high energy live performance awaits we are certain.
