Salt Spring Island – A spellbinding artist, Kaeshammer’s performances and recordings are intimate and inviting affairs with jazz, boogie-woogie, and blues combined with passion and meticulous detail. Kaeshammer is internationally acclaimed for his talents as a singer, songwriter, pianist, and producer who is unafraid of crossing genre boundaries, and for using his many influences to take the listener along on a memorable journey.

“CANADA’S TOP 5 PIANO PLAYERS: #1 – Michael Kaeshammer is what I call a ‘piano wrestler’. He sits at a piano and pounds it into submission. He can make it do anything he wants it to do. He doesn’t work for the piano; the piano works for him, and he’s not afraid of being the boss.” CBC Radio 1 Tonic
Michael Kaeshammer’s recording career now spans 23 years and 12 albums. His record, 2016’s critically acclaimed No Filter, was nominated for a 2018 Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year, his eighth nomination (he has won twice). He has also earned multiple Western Canadian Music Award nominations, winning as both Musician of the Year and Entertainer of the Year and, in 2017, for Jazz Artist of the Year for No Filter.
