Background

After studying classical piano for seven years in his German homeland, 13-year-old Kaeshammer (pronounced "case-hammer") discovered boogie-woogie and stride piano as played by Albert Ammons, Meade Lux Lewis, Pete Johnson, Pinetop Smith, and Fats Waller. In three years, he was playing boogie-woogie piano in clubs, concerts, and festivals all over Germany. After his family moved to the west coast of Canada, he attracted attention almost immediately, performing at blues and jazz festivals across the country during the summer of 1996.

Besides playing the piano he also sings blues and jazz. His first album, Blue Keys (BSB Productions), was released in 1996, followed by Tell You How I Feel (Alma Records) in 1998, which was recorded at Metalworks Studios in Mississauga, Ontario. He subsequently recorded No Strings Attached (Alma Records), released in 2000; Strut (Alma/Universal Music), released in 2003, Days Like These (Alert/Universal Music), released in 2007; and "Lovelight", released in 2009.[2]

Kaeshammer is best known in Canada, but has performed and toured extensively in the United States and Europe. Some of his most popular songs are "On a Saturday Night", from the album No Strings Attached; "Comes Love", from Strut; and "Cinnamon Sun", from Days Like These.

He has lived in Offenburg, Vancouver Island, Toronto, and New York City.
