Musicians David “Stitcx” Rapaport and Joseph Braley have spent the last three years touring the world with blues rock prodigy Reignwolf, providing a wall of sound for the guitar virtuoso to paint. The duo is now embarking on a new journey with MASZER. With vocalist Katie Blackstock at the helm, MASZER weaves a sonic blanket that draws on Middle Eastern melodies and West African rhythms. MASZER’s first single, “Fata Mirage,” is a haunting psych groove that transports the listener to the middle of the desert at high noon. MASZER can currently be found tramping up and down I-5 between Seattle and Los Angeles as they prepare for their debut EP.
In the last three years David, along with drummer Joseph Braley, took on world tours, opening for Black Sabbath and Pixies as well as playing major festivals and shows all over the world with Reignwolf. Inspired by those years of musical excitement, David has spent the past six months in his studio writing over a hundred songs in preparation for the next musical leaping point. Teaming with long time friend and captivating Seattle based singer Katie Blackstock, the trio have dubbed themselves MASZER.
