Chilly Gonzales is a Grammy-winning composer, virtuoso pianist and entertainer. Criss-crossing between rap, electro and solo piano music, he became the outrageous pop performer who invited himself to the ivory tower of classical music. The eccentric artist inspires and collaborates with the likes of Feist, Jarvis Cocker, Peaches, Daft Punk and Drake. Change seems to be the only constant in Gonzales’ journey. Every time his audience thinks it has finally figured him out, he makes a radical move and breaks with its expectations.

Philipp Jedicke 

Born in Kehl, Germany in 1977, he has lived in Canada and France and is currently based in Cologne. He works as a freelance journalist and post-production manager for various television stations, film production companies, newspapers, magazines and websites.
