After studying classical piano for seven years in his German homeland, 13-year-old Kaeshammer discovered boogie-woogie and stride piano as played by Albert Ammons, Meade Lux Lewis, and Fats Waller. In three years, he was playing boogie-woogie piano in clubs, concerts, and festivals all over Germany. He attracted attention almost immediately after his family moved to the west coast of Canada, 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 was released in 1996, followed by Tell You How I Feel in 1998, No Strings Attached in 2000, Strut in 2003, Days Like These in 2007 and Lovelight in 2009.
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.
