Willy Mason won many fans with his 2004 debut album Where the Humans Eat and hit single Oxygen but had been off the musical radar somewhat since follow-up, released in 2007.

But he proved to an eager crowd in the BBC 6 Music arena that he remains a unique and talented performer.

Performing tracks from Carry On, released late last year, he showcased his blues-y deep voice, with hints of country and folk, that belies his 28 years.

Also on the setlist were opener Gotta Keep Movin' and So Long, which went down well alongside newer tracks from Carry On.
