Musicians And Singer Songwriters (M.A.S.S.)

Hailing from the Blue Mountains the trio perform live improvised music. Lenny is a virtuoso guitarist who has played for acts such as iOTA, Spooky Men’s Chorale, Tony Eardley and Robyne Dunn to name but a few.
- LAB64 - A powerful singer/songwriter/guitarist who plays what would be best described as ‘acoustic blackness’ and has been a regular performer on the Sydney acoustic music scene.
- Peter Miller-Robinson - Peter Miller-Robinson is a songwriter, singer and guitarist, whose original music embraces elements of folk, blues and jazz. He also plays mandolin and eight string ukelele. He is known for strong, rich vocals, dexterous playing and astute, often wry lyrics. Phillip Adams (ABC's Late Night Live) describes Peter's work as "fine writing". Peter is an enthusiastic live performer. He plays regularly at festivals, folk clubs, universities and on National and public radio. He has shared the stage with many well known local and overseas artists. In 2007 he supported Bo Diddly (RIP), Eric Burdon, Rodriguez and Chris Smither at the Basement in Sydney during their Australian tours. He has twice received awards from the Australian Songwriters' Association.
- Michael Azzopardi - Anyone who has sat through one of Michael's performances will tell you it's hard to slot his music into any one genre. There are traces of many differing styles; rock, folk, blues, jazz – all of the usual references but overriding these is a uniqueness – a sense that you've not quite heard anything like this before. An esoteric genius with a penchant for intricate acoustic masterpieces with an intensity and depth of his compositions that reach into the listener and take a firm hold on the soul. The poetic, philosophical lyrics are accessible and firmly rooted in everyday reality. A remarkably multi–layered artistic force.
