Michael Drexler

Hailing from New York City but born in Germany, Grammy Nominated Michael Drexler developed a unique style at the piano that combines soundscapes that bridge the gap between nostalgia of boogie woogie, ragtime, blues, jazz standards with the freshness of the future.  Award winning Michael Drexler has entertained crowds as big as millions of people to the humble intimate settings of piano bars. His influences range from Scott Joplin, Albert Ammons, and Meade Lux Lewis to Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and modern pop artists. Drexler says, “Some people speak through words, I speak through piano keys.”
