Kristian has not yet disappointed with his piano performances. He's a genius with the keys and arrangements. He can take a simple chord progression and turn it into something interesting and beautiful. He's my go-to keyboardist. If you want someone dependable, creative, and professional, give him a shot.

Kristian is a very talented musician with a real feel for capturing the heart of your music. He is easygoing and will work with you to make sure you get what you want. Great guy, great experience.
Kristian is an amazing keyboardist and talent. This is not my first project with him. He understands what my vision is with the songs and is able to take it to a different level. He's a great pianist and covered my original song well. He even added some nuances that enhanced the original song while still keeping its essence. I highly recommend Kristian. I will continue working with him on piano and keyboard projects.
Kristian is an amazing pianist. I've worked with him on turning several of my originals to piano accompaniment and he adds such beautiful elements to the song. He also delivers very quickly. I will be working with him again in the future. I highly recommend him.
Kristian was amazing. He took a song that was composed in the 80s and put a very modern spent to it with a whole new chord progression and musical arrangement. The way he recomposed the song was nothing short of amazing. Very well done in a very creative way. I'll be working on another song with him immediately. Highly recommended!
Kristian is an amazing pianist and keyboardist. He really took what I had and turned it into something that is lively and beautiful. I highly recommend him for his talent and professionalism. I have used him before and he will be my go to pianist and keyboardist for future projects.
What a great musician!! Takes direction perfectly and gets the tracks to you quickly. Such a professional! Highly recommended to hire Kristian!
What an incredible musician. Listens to directions and nails it! Worth every penny!
