About this artist

Posted By Chilly Gonzales

Chilly Gonzales, Grammy-winning Canadian pianist and entertainer currently living in Europe,

is known as much for the intimate piano touch of best-selling albums Solo Piano and Solo

Piano II as for his showmanship and composition for award-winning stars. "Gonzo", as he is

known to close collaborators, aims to be a man of his time, approaching the piano with classical

and jazz training but with the attitude of a rapper.

Solo Piano (2004) appeared in a more innocent time, when Chilly Gonzales was a pioneer in

evoking the dying genres of classical and jazz and dragged them kicking and screaming into the 21st

century. This album of accidental virtuosity surprised everyone, including the self-described musical

genius himself.

Solo Piano II (2012) was a pop mini-masterpiece for a wired world, a transition to a new reality.

By then a legendary entertainer and A-list collaborator (Drake, Daft Punk, Feist) Chilly Gonzales

delivered a catchy, polished collection; he was aiming to please and ready for prime time. The sequel

definitively satisfied an ever-increasing audience hungry for Gonzo’s imperfectly perfect miniatures.

Solo Piano III ( release 7th sep 2018) comes at a more problematic inflection point.

Like any final act, there are complications and consequences, followed by an urgent race to the

finish line. Like its predecessors, it’s a mostly happy ending in C major, but there is more dissonance,

tension and ambiguity along the way.
