Martin Klein - Did

Born in Innsbruck, Austria, Martin Klein took violin and cello lessons as a young boy.

After founding a string quartet with his sisters at the age of ten, he decided to become a musician. He began to compose his own music and teach himself piano. Later he moved to the Netherlands to drink good beer and to study with the blind pianist Bert van den Brink. After countless jazz and rock performances as a sideman, both in Austria and abroad he set out to sing his own songs.

His widely acclaimed album “Songs For My Piano” earned him invitations to the Salzburg Festival, the TschirgArt Jazzfestival and the Radiokulturhaus Vienna. His songs received extensive airplay on alternative radio stations in Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany. Martin also recently performed in London and he is collaborating with several musicians in the Jazz area. He is also writing and recording for a piano solo release.

In 2009 met producer Filippo Gaetani and the two started a recording-production collaboration. “Did I Ever Let You Know” and “Your Heart Has Gone” feature Brian McRae on drums, Filippo Gaetani on bass and guitars. There are plans for a future full length album.
