Michael Kaeshammer, a prolific singer, songwriter, pianist, and producer, has earned a loyal international following as a triple threat. He’s a piano virtuoso with a technical mastery of many different styles, an eloquent singer/songwriter, and a charming performer. After studying classical piano in Germany, 13-year-old Kaeshammer discovered boogie-woogie and stride piano as played by Albert Ammons, Meade Lux Lewis, and Pete Johnson. He was soon playing jazz & boogie-woogie in venues across Europe and attracted immediate attention after moving to Canada in 1996.
Since, Michael has released eleven albums and has been nominated for seven JUNO Awards (Canadian GRAMMY equivalent), winning two of them. Kaeshammer’s performances are an invitation to join the party. He doesn’t play at you. He plays with you. At one of his shows, you’re all in it together – not only part of the story, but virtually part of the band.
