Willy Mason & Brendan Benson - Upstairs at United, Vol. 7
On February 5th, 2013, Willy Mason and Brendan Benson put to tape Upstairs at United Vol. 7.

Upstairs At United Vol. 7. is a lush vibrant recording featuring everything from upright bass, mandolin, pump organ, viola, fiddle, cocktail table percussion, and more. Upstairs At United is a series of all analog, direct to tape, live studio recordings, taped above the pressing plant in tribute to the rich historical significance of that space.
Performing these Jemima James & Michael Mason penned songs, are Willy Mason, Brendan Benson, Nina Violet, Jared Green, Ben Plasse, Ian Craft, Brad Pemberton, Andrew Higley, and Marna Taylor and Kim Collins doing the backup vocals.
