Michael Canaan (pronounced: kuh-nahn)
Smooth Christian Jazz Pianist/Keyboardist
After decades of quietly playing to myself in spare moments, composing music in my headphones while my family slept... I answered a Spirit call to offer my talents on a local church worship team. There, I played keyboards and also added basslines. Well over forty years old, these marked my first-ever public appearances. I took a few chances, and infused just a touch of jazzy flavor to the worship music.
This experimentation sparked a vision within me to produce and release music that fuses jazz with spiritual themes and worship songs.
That leads me to this, my very first publicly released musical project!
This March, I will be releasing a seven song EP, on Worship Fusion Records. The project is called Caught Up in the Clouds. It is the culmination (to this point) of my entire musical and worshipful journey with the Lord over the years since starting!
I hope you'll give it a listen, and let me know what you think! :)
