Mason Indigo is the alias of Jamel Lee, an Atlanta-based artist from Durham, North Carolina. Mason collides the sounds of Alternative, Hip Hop and Pop into his own concoction, while leaning into a dynamic array of themes. From the surrealism of Anime to challenges with mental health, or simply just celebrating music and good times itself. Mason seeks to deploy an air of relatability across his body of work.
Mason’s foray into music began as early as 15, cutting his teeth writing bars practising them in private. After showing his cousin what he’d be working on, the positive feedback he gained helped him muster up the courage to properly pursue it. Mason’s never been one to pigeon hole himself into a singular style, and that still rings true today.
After a stint with an old alias, DeAndre Doogle, and maturity taking his spirit to the next level, Mason Indigo was born. Mason Indigo displays versatility and style, hooking crowds in with an infectious blend of up-tempo bangers and uplifting lyrics that gets both the mind and the body moving. Mason has put out four singles (Takizawa, Senpai Sadboy, In Between, and Flu Game), and a 4-track EP (Starborn), released in 2017.
He is affiliated with the label G Williams Entertainment as of 2018, and has collaborated with the likes of Souf Bandido (Guilt Umbrella) , and M.D.E. (Slo My Roll ). His music has taken him interstate, and has performed in Atlanta, Durham, Fayetteville, and Tallahassee. Additionally, he went on to win the ATL vs NC Hip Hop Competition in his hometown, and has had notable playlist features in Makin’ It Magazine (Issue 33).
With momentum in his favor, Mason Indigo continues to build up his repertoire as a musician to watch in 2020 and beyond. Today, he is busy setting the wheels in motion for his latest single titled ‘Empty Words’, as well as his debut full-length album ‘Wayward Son’. Further release details to follow.
