The Away Team formed in 1994 when Nik Green who played with TRSC Boys, Roy Harper, Jimmy Page, Blue Murder, teamed up with Penny “Little Savage” former singer for Warner/Chappell band White Feather. Since then The Away Team has performed as a duo, a trio with Chapman Stick™ player James Fanning, and a five piece with additional players on drums and percussion. For the Unconventional Tour 2008, the Away Team was joined by various musicians onstage in their 8 city, 7200 mile tour of the US.
Featuring the vocals and lyrics of songwriter Penny Little, combining elements of rock, pop, ambient, country, and “out there”, the Away Team doesn’t fit neatly into a box. Both Nik and Penny are keyboardists who come from classical backgrounds and ended up in signed heavy rock bands .
The Away Team has performed at large rallies and events, including the Rolling Thunder Democracy Tour in Santa Barbara, Summer Solstice Festival, anti-war demonstrations, clubs, house parties…..
