Massey Hall presents
Chilly Gonzales is known as much for the intimate piano touch of his best-selling Solo Piano album trilogy as for his sweaty showmanship and composition for award-winning stars.
He fills the world’s great philharmonic halls dressed in his slippers and a bathrobe - in any one night he can be found giving a sublime solo recital, dissecting the musicology of a Billie Eilish hit and displaying his lyrical dexterity as a rapper.
He performs and writes songs with Jarvis Cocker, Feist and Drake and won a Grammy for his collaboration on Daft Punk’s Best Album of the Year.
A culmination of recent years’ explorations in teaching, Chilly Gonzales recently inaugurated his very own music school: The Gonzervatory. His first book Enya: A Treatise on Unguilty Pleasures was published in October 2020. In this musical memoir, he asks: Does music have to be smart or does it just need to go straight to the heart?
In Winter 2020, Chilly Gonzales released A very chilly christmas, his very own Christmas Album. From feudal oldies to newer holiday pop canon, A very chilly christmas surveys a broad scope of seasonal repertoire and sentiment. There’s grandeur and solemnity, there’s austerity and merriment, and there’s Mariah Carey.
