Vincent Mason, one of the most promising rising artists in the roots music scene, has released his latest single titled Livin’ Proof.

Rooted deeply in the genre’s storytelling tradition, Mason’s Livin’ Proof poignantly explores loss and the haunting presence of absence.

The new release takes listeners through the somber experience of seeing someone you care about lose themselves in the aftermath of a goodbye.

The lyrics paint a vivid portrait of a man who haunts the local bar, seeking solace in the neon lights, with an almost palpable heartbreak.

The repeated lines in the verses combined with the heavier chorus denote the cyclical nature of grief, emphasizing an inability to detach from the reminiscence of a lost love.

Furthermore, the refrain, “He’s livin’ proof of a lost goodbye,” reinforces the title and the overarching theme  persistence of memory and the palpability of loss. The protagonist is portrayed with economy and empathy, steering clear of clichés, rendering him relatable and real.

Vincent Mason stands poised at the cusp of a breakthrough with a song that serves as a testament to his burgeoning career within the country genre.

RootsnRevelry Review

Whether or not Vincent Mason approves of the RnR-inflicted moniker “Heartbreak Kid” is unbeknownst to me, but I will say it’s damn befitting. Mason once again proves this with his newest single, Livin’ Proof. The track is quintessential Mason, embodying the essence of heartbreak through a journey of lost love and “lost goodbyes”. Livin’ Proof immerses listeners in the depths of emotional turmoil, with the protagonist seeking solace in a tomb of neon lights. The song stands out for its unique blend of groovy rhythms, cool vibes, and smooth, molasses-like flow. A haunting pedal steel captures the listener’s attention before floating us into the infectious drumbeat, all deliberate in showcasing Vincent Mason’s vocal swagger and charismatic delivery. Living Proof comes out swinging as a chart-topping country classic.
