With Middle-Eastern roots, and hungry for the harmonious elegance of the West, Mike Massy is noted for his vocal and pianistic distinctiveness, and intuitive talent. He revisits the Lebanese Oriental music, proposing a unique fusion between the passion for Andalusia, baroque harmonies, and jazz rhythms.

Songwriter, film score composer, performer and actor, from the Phoenician town of Anfeh, Mike Massy was born on the 31st of March 1982, in the land of the Cedars, Lebanon, and grew up fascinated by the inimitable voice of Feirouz, the nostalgic melodies of Zaki Nassif, and the poetry and authenticity of Brel’s and Aznavour’s texts.

Despite the unstable situation in Lebanon, he started piano courses at the age of nine. In 1996 he joined the National High Conservatory of Music. At the age of seventeen, he specialized in Arabic Opera; his musical curiosity led him to explore the “mouwachahat”, as well as oriental and occidental singing, along with his classical piano education.

In 2001, his passion for theatre led him to join the Faculty of Fine Arts where he obtained his degree in Drama. Simultaneously, for 10 years he followed Jazz Ballet dancing courses at a well-reputed dance school, Arabesque, eventually joining its acclaimed troupe.

As a multitalented artist, a pianist, and an outstanding singer, Mike Massy has collaborated with the most important artists in the Lebanese and Middle Eastern music scene. From Lebanon to Egypt, from Syria to Abu Dhabi, from Algeria to Morocco, and from the Netherlands to Italy through Belgium, Mike Massy has participated in big festivals and toured with internationally known musicians and artists.

in 2011 Mike Massy released his album “Ya Zaman” (O Good Old Days), (a Lebanese oriental baroque jazz that he describes as “a Northern boy carrying a Southern heart”.)
