(Nashville, TN): Breakout country-pop artist Leah Marie Mason celebrates new adventures after her exclusive signing with SONY's The Orchard and Warner Chappell Music Publishing with announcement of new single "Tears Into Diamonds."
The single was co-written with Claire Douglas (BMG), and the Grammy-nominated Blake Hubbard and Jarrod Ingram (Mickey Guyton). Mason shares, "'Tears into Diamonds' was written with Claire Douglas and The 720 (Blake Hubbard and Jarrod Ingram). This record is essentially a “f*ck you” to the ex that doesn’t deserve the time day. To me this song is all about realizing your self worth and coming to the realization that you deserve better."
Leah Marie Mason has become a force to be reckoned with in country music, bringing the songwriting skills and vocal performance ability needed to make it in a town like Music City.
Leah Marie has crushed her career milestones, soaring through the country-pop music rankings in just over a year and a half, a true testament to her natural drive and immense talent. Mason has even been featured as the cover of Fresh Finds: Country on Spotify for her smash crossover single "Miss Us Then," and has been a featured performer around many of Nashville's famous stages such as The Listening Room with The Song Suffragettes, playing CMA Fest for a Spotify event, or performing at the infamous Whiskey Jam.
Mason's successes have shown her ability to flourish rapidly in the music industry, making her an obvious pick to sign with major players such as SONY's The Orchard and Warner Chappell Music Publishing.
Leah Marie Mason has shown many sides of herself in her previous country-pop singles, but her latest release “Tears Into Diamonds” takes aim at a cheating ex and sets the score. Mason’s polished twang accompanied by crisp instrumentals set the scene of a woman scorned, promising to listen to her ex-love’s explanation when “hell freezes over” or, more specifically, when her “tears turn into diamonds.”
Mason has proved her incredible lyricism in past releases such as "Hannah" and "Habit," and "Tears into Diamonds" is just as beautifully and emotionally penned.
The maturity in the fledgling star’s tone and delivery is beyond her time in the industry, but the headstrong innocence that shines through is genuine. “Tears Into Diamonds” is as stunning and sharp as the subject and its creator.
Leah Marie Mason never tries to be perfect. Instead, the North Carolina-born and Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and artist allows her edges to frame an intimate and infectious brand of country that could resonate from a small town to the top of a big city. By doing so, she energizes the genre with universal pop appeal. By the age of eleven, Leah started performing in a classic rock band with her older brother, belting out Heart and Pat Benatar covers. After a year at Berklee College of Music, she transferred to Belmont University in Nashville. Inspired by everything from the classic songwriting of George Strait, bluegrass of The Steeldrivers, and 21st-century vibes of Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa, and country-pop vibes of Kacey Musgraves and Kelsea Ballerini, she spent countless hours writing and honed a sharp signature style, resulting in her debut single “Far Boy.” Taking the reins of her career, Leah watched YouTube tutorials about uploading media to Spotify, outsourced cover art, and finally decided to launch a TikTok page to promote “Far Boy.” The song played over a video captioned, “I called my ex to hang out so he could listen to this song I wrote about him,” and it organically exploded with 13 million views.
Leah Marie Mason may have just broken out onto the scene in 2021 with her viral TikTok that tugged at heartstrings (over 13 million, to be exact), but she has the poise and skill of a seasoned artist.
Her “Far Boy” duet with Austin Burke debuted on Taste of Country and her latest collaboration with breakout star Kidd G on “Love Isn’t Real” was featured on numerous editorial playlists on release week, launching Mason's trajectory further.
The success of "Far Boy," and other singles released after, such as "I Wish," "Love Isn't Real," "Hannah," "Miss Us Then," and "Habit," skyrocketed Leah's career and fanbase to the next level.
These accolades led Leah to sign her exclusive deals with SONY's The Orchard and Warner Chappell Music Publishing alongside the 13th and Numbers Don't Lie Publishing.
Leah Marie's trajectory is growing at an immense rate, and she is one of 2022’s most established up-and-coming artists in country music.
