'Just a piano player': from boogie-woogie to blues, Michael Kaeshammer does it all
Pianist Michael Kaeshammer has dipped his toes in a number of genres throughout his two-decade career, but labels aren't important to him.
"I don't see it as a bunch of different styles at all," he says. "It's just how I play — it's me."
The Canadian musician simply wants to be known as a piano player because that's how he sees himself. And if labels ruled his career, then his latest album would be weighed down by a lot of descriptors.
Combining elements of jazz, blues, boogie-woogie and more on his latest album, No Filter, it's clear that Kaeshammer is a jack of all trades, all under the general title as "just a piano player."
