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, 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 inaugurated in 2018 his very own music school: The Gonzervatory. His book on “guilty pleasures”, Enya, received critical acclaim on its publication in several languages in 2020. Most recently, Gonzo released the instant new classic Christmas album A Very Chilly Christmas and its companion old-school A Very Chilly Christmas TV Special available as VOD.
