Prolific Vancouver Island-based singer/songwriter/pianist/producer Michael Kaeshammer 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 and engaging performer.
On his eleventh album, No Filter, Michael mixes his well-crafted and melodic original songs with a couple of evocative piano instrumentals, and the result is a delightfully varied collection. No stranger to critical acclaim, his album, Strut, won the 2004 Juno for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year and in 2008 his album, Days Like These won the Juno for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year.
Kaeshammer has completely come to terms with his eclectic taste in music, something showcased on the record, and takes his listeners on a highly entertaining journey through refreshingly diverse musical terrain, from upbeat romps with exuberant horns to lyrical piano and soulful voice.
