Acclaimed Canadian pianist and vocalist Michael Kaeshammer has announced a new album of live-off-the-floor performances called The Warehouse Sessions.

The Juno-nominated musician promises a “joyful” recording that blends funky soul, gospel revival and rollicking boogie-woogie across nine tracks.

The Warehouse Sessions showcases Kaeshammer’s experienced, fine-tuned trio with bassist David Piltch and drummer Johnny Vidacovich. They cut the record at Bryan Adams’ famed Warehouse Studio in Vancouver.

“The concept was simple,” Kaeshammer says. “Let’s call a tune and then let’s record it. These are all first takes, loose and energetic.”
