He stepped out as a solo artist in 2010, trading in the band's roots-jam driven rock for a more acoustic soul/r&b songwriter approach. He has since released three solo albums, "Balance & Pull", 2010, "Life Is Wonderful", 2012 and "Power of a Woman", 2014. His transition has led him to supporting slots for songwriters like Bleu, Ernie Halter, and Darryl Worley, and has kept him busy on the road performing over 250 shows per year.
Masi cites influences that range from soul artists like Marvin Gaye and Bill Withers, folk and blues icons like Van Morrison and James Taylor as well as modern songwriters in the vein of Mat Kearney, Damien Rice and James Morrison. His songs are often reflective and thought provoking, yet maintain a free spirited and light hearted tone. Masi’s songwriting explores the complexity of love and compromise from a unique, but relatable perspective.
Masi's latest record, "Power Of A Woman", released in October 2014, is smart, sexy, charming and reflective. His next full length record is slated for release in 2018.
