Born Jason Charles Beck in Canada, Chilly Gonzales first surfaced on the music scene as a DJ in Germany. But his musical
roots run deeper than that. He began to teach himself piano at three, following in the footsteps of his older brother, Chris,
who was taking lessons. Gonzalez later trained at McGill University where he launched his career as a composer and a performer.
Chilly Gonzales became the front man for the alternative rock band, Son, in the 1990s. Under the Warner Music Canada label,
Thriller generated one single that garnered a lot of airplay. The single "Pick up the Phone" even led to opening gigs for
the Barenaked Ladies. Eventually he parted ways with the Warner Music Canada label, and headed to Berlin in 1999, where he
decided to leverage his Jewish faith as a marketing angle. Even though he didn't speak any German, Gonzales was pleased with
his choice and incorporated changes in his musical style as well. Under the Kitty-yo label, Gonzales built his image around
rap. "Let's Groove Again" was a hit on the dance floor with its 1999 release. Gonzales held a steady presence in both nightclubs
and summer pop festivals.
Chilly Gonzales's career as a musician has taken several twists and turns. He released the album Solo Piano in 2004, comprised
entirely of instrumental material. Solo Piano was unveiled in several countries and continues to be his best-selling album
to date. Looking to see this Grammy-nominated musician in person? Look no further than StubHub. Get your rock music tickets online today!
