Mila Mason first moved to Nashville at the age of 17 with her mother, a successful performer who toured Europe and had a regular gig in Las Vegas opening for the Commodores. Yet, it wasn't performing that first lured young Mason into the music scene; her love of songwriting was what really spurred her on. Mason looked at herself as a hopeful trendsetter on the Music City scene. To make ends meet, Mason sang demos and jingles while knocking on doors at Music Row like most aspiring artists and writers do.
In 1993, producer Blake Mevis, known for guiding recordings by the likes of George Strait, Vern Gosdin, and Keith Whitley, discovered Mason's vocal talents and presented some of her material to Atlantic Records Vice President, Bryan Switzer. The result was a recording contract with the company that charted two albums containing the singles "That's Enough of That," "Dark Horse," and "Closer to Heaven."
Eventually, Mason left the label to pursue songwriting once again, the original driving force of her career. That's what she did, along with raising a family, until May 2003, when she found her way back into the studio under a new contract with Twinbeat Records. Her first album with the label, entitled Stained Glass Window, appeared late summer 2003.
