Accidentally Happy Runner Up Australian Debut Album of the Year.
(Rhythms Readers Poll 2000)

"With a voice weatherbeaten yet pure and sweet, Peter writes gritty straight from the heart songs with a lyrical poise and poetry which would be the envy of many better known songsmiths..."
Dave Steel (Aug 1999)

"He's ACE!"
Jeff Lang (Producer of Pete's debut album Accidentally Happy)

"Impressive and instantly memorable originals, plus a divinely lilting take on Marvin Gaye's `Whats Goin' On'. Maskell's self-released CD Accidentally Happy has been in my home player ever since and is well worth hunting down."
Sophie Best (Rhythms Magazine Dec 2000)

"Maskell's songs recall moments of great Australian artists such as Paul Kelly and Mark Gillespie... A remarkable album made all the more so by the fact that there was no lengthy rehearsal - simply run through and record."
Lee Howard (Sunday Herald Sun Oct 15 2000)
