Mason Mauldin (1981-2013) was a Little Rock musician, athlete, pilot and, according to this remembrance from Arkansas Times' Observer a few days after his untimely death, a "world-class cutup."

In commemoration of what would be Mauldin's 36th birthday, Mauldin's former bandmates from Big Boots have partnered with Max Recordings to release a six-track EP featuring some gems fronted by the late musician, "recorded, rescued, mixed and mastered by Darian Stribling and Jordan Trotter at Blue Chair Studio."

A link to the EP follows, along with a note from Mauldin's former bandmate Mike Motley.

Tomorrow would have been Mason's 36th Birthday. To celebrate that today we newly release the Big Boots EP - songs that we originally recorded in 2007.

The final band lineup was Mason Mauldin, Mike Motley, and Trevor Ware.

Recorded, rescued, mixed and mastered by Darian Stribling and Jordan Trotter at Blue Chair Studio.

These songs are released in memory of Mason and dedicated to everyone who played with or supported the band, including Luke Hunsicker, Trevor Ware, Jonathan Trotter, Jordan Trotter, Will Boyd, Jack Lloyd, Zach Reeves, Sara Blancett Reeves, Rhett Brinkley, and Burt Taggart and others - you know who you are.
