NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville-based singer-songwriter Leah Marie Mason brings a new type of revengeful tune with “Cigarette Sober,” available everywhere today. Written by Mason, Robyn Collins and Jason Reeves, “Cigarette Sober” unapologetically confronts the allure of forbidden temptations with an anthem for anyone who has broken free from the chains of a toxic past. Exuding an upbeat and melodic aura, Mason’s airy vocal tone takes center stage, infusing the track with heartfelt emotion.
“Writing this song was an incredibly cathartic experience for me,” shares Mason. “It signifies a pivotal time in my life when I was finally able to take my power back by letting go of a relationship I had clung to for way too long. This song helps me realize my self-worth and inner strength, and I hope it speaks to other girls in the same way.”
An empowering ballad for those who have faced similar struggles, this latest release from Mason resonates with the universal experience of letting go of toxic ties while demanding to be valued as more than just a “temporary tattoo.” “I’m not the kinda girl you can wash off in the morning / Guess you’ll have to live with the brand I left on you,” proclaims Mason.
Just last month, Mason touched hearts with the emotional tribute “Black Sheep,” shedding light on her mental health struggles during Suicide Prevention Month. Building on the success of her April 2023 debut EP, Honeydew & Hennessy, the 24-year-old artist continues to carve her unique space in the industry as she navigates a musical landscape where genres are blending more seamlessly than ever before. Gracefully evolving alongside her personal journey, Mason’s signature ethereal production quality and lyricism that doesn’t shy away from depth or weightiness reflects her diverse array of genre influences such as Country, pop and folk.
Since landing in Nashville in 2019 to attend Belmont University, Mason has already garnered significant momentum through her artistry, going on to be hailed by People.com as an “undeniable talent” that the “genre hasn’t seen possibly since the likes of Taylor Swift, Kelsea Ballerini and Kacey Musgraves first made their way onto the scene.” With tens of millions of views on TikTok and over 25M streams across platforms independently, Mason’s music aims to inspire her organically grown fanbase and further cement her as one on the rise.
