Richard Prowse is a double bass soloist who plays improvised jazz standards, world music and original pieces. He achieves a cello like sound with the bow and his unaccompanied pieces have quite a unique sound.

Tom Martin plays folk sounds with rock and roll influences, set to songs of yearning and tall tales. Love of telling stories and creating personal mythologies blends into acoustic balladeering. Shades of Dylan, Lou Reed, Neil Young and randomness. Jumps around a lot.

Mahesh works around Wellington with cover bands and originals. His solo performances see him on the guitar and harmonica singing his original brand of acoustic indie.

A protege of the renowned Iowa school of creative writing, Lee Posna is from New Jersey and lives on the Kapati coast. He loves literature and is almost always seen with his head in a book. His poetry is rich, dark and intelligent.
