Citizen Sessions: Mason Jenkins

  • Citizen Brewing Company 227 35TH AVE. N.E. CALGARY, ALBERTA Canada (map)

Mason Jenkins is an advocate and spokesperson for bringing back the "Calgary Wave" and tries embody the attitude of a very good dog. Jenkins is a transgender man, which makes him an excellent inclusivity bingo dab to any event. He shares stories and jokes of his adventures in gender and navigating the world as a retired lesbian. Mason's songs are velvet paintings. They are elegantly grafted and from a forgotten era and delightfully campy. His songwriting is built upon on a darkness that makes the listener ask out loud "...hey, is this guy ok?" Of course he is, contrast is what makes the highlights brighter, any dog could tell you that.
