The teenage bad-boy Reece Mastin, who stole hearts across the country back in 2011, is no longer. In his place stands Mastin, a full-grown man; someone contemplative, and earnest – a man who has already lived a lifetime of peaks and pitfalls, caused in part by the ruthless nature of a career in the commercial music industry. Now 23 years old, Mastin is ready to show the world who he really is – and what better way to do that than with a brand new sound that is guaranteed to surprise and impress. Releasing his first single as Mastin today, Not The Man For You is a rock ‘n roll belter and completely unlike anything fans have heard from him before. To add to the excitement, the debut EP, Suitcase of Stories (available April 6) follows in its wake, a release that truly solidifies Mastin as one of Australia’s most exciting new voices in rock ‘n roll. To celebrate, Mastin will be taking his band on the road for a sweeping tour of Australia, kicking off in Sydney at The Basement on April 7, then moving through regional and metropolitain cities in Tasmania, New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland, ACT, WA, Victoria and finishing up in Albury on July 14.

Not The Man For You is evocative of the most classic of rock – with Mastin’s vocals having been compared to Australian rock royalty Jimmy Barnes, amongst other greats. There’s no denying that voice – and when it’s paired with an absolute shredder of a band, spilling over with palpable energy, it’s impossible to resist.Not everyone will love this record, and I’m very okay with that,” offers Mastin. “But for those who share the same taste as I do for the grand and world-changing genre of rock n roll, I wanted to make something special and long-lasting. I wanted to make something that can change your day, change your mindset, and make you feel like you can take on the world.”

The EP Suitcase of Stories could not be further removed from Reece’s previous releases. Electrified, rumbling and exhilarating, Suitcase of Stories will take the listener on a ride, all right – riff-driven, technically skilfull, and surprisingly diverse for such a rock record. For all the rowdy guitar and drums though, it is Mastin’s spectacular voice that takes precendence here. At times soft, but often pushed to the limits, it’s the voice that gives Mastin away: this is who he really is – the five songs that appear on Suitcase of Stories exemplify the most real body of work he’s ever produced.
