In 1973 Mason Daring was attending law school in Boston, driving a cab and playing cocktail hour guitar in local bars and performing at coffee houses. Jeanie Stahl was going into the homestretch of her college years, booking rock and roll concerts and running the coffee house at her college and performing in area coffeehouses. They met at a now defunct Cambridge club, where on the basis of an immediate respect for each other's vocal and songwriting abilities, they formed a permanent temporary union.

Daring & Stahl still perform together albeit only once or twice a year. This year, to celebrate 40 years of performing together, they are going all out and performing three concerts this fall. They have decided to wait until their 50th year to do a national tour.

(Bio)

In 1973 Mason Daring was attending law school in Boston, driving a cab and playing cocktail hour guitar in local bars and performing at coffee houses. Jeanie Stahl was going into the homestretch of her college years, booking rock and roll concerts and running the coffee house at her college and performing in area coffeehouses. They met at a now defunct Cambridge club, where on the basis of an immediate respect for each other's vocal and songwriting abilities, they formed a permanent temporary union, which is now celebrating 40 years.
Although Daring and Stahl eventually pursued different musical and career paths they continue to work together in the studio with Ms. Stahl singing on some of Daring’s film and television projects. They recently recorded three songs, which will be available for download in the fall of 2013. They continue to perform, albeit only a couple of times a year.
Their music offers an eclectic range of styles, from old English sea ballads and classic songs of the 30' and 40's to contemporary folk, country and pop tunes, including original compositions. They won the hearts of Boston and Cambridge audiences, twice winning reader polls in the Boston Globe and the Phoenix. The N.E. Folk Almanac described Daring & Stahl as "among the very best the era (the 70's) had to offer" and the Boston Globe dubbed them the "darlings of the folk scene."
Sweet Melodies in the Night, their first album, included the popular song Marblehead Morning and introduced their music to radio listeners throughout America. Daring & Stahl toured extensively in the Northeast and appeared numerous times on national (including the Today Show) and local television and radio. Their second album, Heartbreak, was released on Philo Records, later a sub-label of Rounder Records. A Daring and Stahl best of CD, The Early Years, a compilation of songs from their two previous recordings was named by the Boston Globe as one of the top ten folk/acoustic recordings of the year. It was also nominated for a Boston Music Award for outstanding folk/acoustic recording of the year. Daring and Stahl are also part of the Passim All Stars, which includes Bill Staines, Bill Novick and Guy Van Duser and Stuart Schulman.
Mason Daring is a music producer and critically acclaimed composer and arranger for television and feature films. His long list of credits includes music composition and production for 75 feature films, including fifteen of John Sayles’ movies, notably The Secret of Roan Inish, Eight Men Out, Honeydripper and Lone Star. He has composed music for countless television films including the Emmy nominated, Bailey’s Mistake, and multiple emmy winners. Theme compositions for TV include the Emmy award winning theme for Yankee Magazine and the long-playing themes for PBS's Nova and Frontline. His lengthy list of credits as music composer and arranger include films for the Walt Disney Company, Hallmark, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox and others. Feature film credits, among others, include The Opposite of Sex and Music of the Heart with Meryl Streep.
Mason was the founder and driving force behind Daring Records, a sub-label of Rounder Records, which produced and released albums for a variety of artists including Bill Staines, Bob Franke, Billy Novick, Guy Van Duser, Duke Levine, Butch Thompson and Jeanie Stahl. Daring continues to compose, arrange and produce and also currently teaching at the Berklee College of Music.
'Mason Daring is to a director what a Stradivarius is to a violinist. He makes moments that might well go by unnoticed spring to life in a way that they suddenly touch the soul of the audience.' - Wes Craven
Jeanie Stahl grew up with classical, folk and rock music. Her voice, said one critic is, "so rich and smooth, it should be bottled and sold." In 1982 she launched her solo career. She recorded three albums, all produced by Mason Daring. I'm Just Foolin' Myself, a collection of songs predominantly from the 1930's and 1940's, All Grown Up and Mysteries. She also starred in eight music videos of vintage songs which aired nationally on PBS as part of the Masterpiece Theater series Love in a Cold Climate. Her songs and vocal recordings have been featured on television specials and in films, including John Sayles' movies Lianna and Return of the Secaucus Seven as well as other feature films including the cult hit, The Opposite of Sex.
For the past 25 years Ms. Stahl has been busy with White Oak Associates, Inc. a Marblehead company, owned by Ms. Stahl and her husband, John W. Jacobsen. White Oak serves the world-wide museum community and giant screen theater industry doing strategic planning and master plans for existing and new museums. Regional projects include the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford and the proposed National Coast Guard Museum expected to be built in New London, CT. The popular Imax® film, The Living Sea, which White Oak co-executive produced, was nominated for an Oscar® for short documentary non-fiction film.
