'The Mastersons are now poised to be one of Austin's breakout acts' says the Austin American Statesman. The duo recorded this 2014 sophomore album with producer/engineer Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty, Sting, Matchbox 20, Dixie Chicks). It raises the stakes with 11 emotionally precise songs that are firmly rooted in sometimes-harsh reality, yet which radiate faith and optimism. The husband & wife duo Denton, Texas-born Eleanor Whitmore & Houston-reared Chris Masterson describe themselves as" more a band than a duo, and we're not going to be George and Tammy. We might not even be John and Exene". in 2014 they toured with Del Amitri's Justin Currie.
