Guitarist Shaun Verreault, drummer Safwan Javed, and bassist Earl Pereira all visited exactly the same Saskatoon senior high school in Saskatchewan, a Canadian prairie province known for agriculture. The music group had taken its name from a canning jar, although Wide Mouth area Mason’s sound is normally rooted within the blues, not really country music. Affects consist of Muddy Waters, Pal Man, and Jimi Hendrix. Apart from business lead singer Verreault’s fresh voice, WMM were able to breathe new lease of life in to the blues-rock trio idea and sound a lot more older than their typical age group of 21 if they released their self-titled record, an extraordinary big-label debut of all-original materials. The music group was courted by many labels before putting your signature on a cope with Warner Music Canada for just two to six albums with world-wide distribution. WMM prepared to re-record and re-release Nazarene, a earlier independent recording. The trio excels at carrying out live, starting for ZZ Best, George Thorogood, and respectable Canadian music group Big Sugars early in its profession. WMM proceeded to go over well in the 1997 Montreux Jazz Event in Switzerland, jamming with Me’shell and Joshua Redman, and impressing Vehicle Morrison a lot that he asked Verreault to become listed on him on-stage.
