Best known for filling the frontman role of Richmond-based roots rockers Jubeus, singer and songwriter Jason Masi has ventured into some reprieving solo territory during the past year with the release of his album, “Balance & Pull.” Trading in his band's amalgam mix of alt-rock, funk grooves and jam-based soul for a laid-back inhalation of Americana, using plenty of brushing percussion, slide guitar, Wurlitzer drones and plinking piano runs. Comfortable in its lounging tempos and jazz-invoking mellowness, it's near impossible not imagining Masi as a perfect male foil to someone like Norah Jones. Masi performs at the Cary Street CafAc on Friday, Jan. 7, at 9:30 p.m.
