Martin Kuchen

Martin Küchen was born 1966 in Eskilstuna, Sweden. He wanted to take lessons on drums, but his parents made him "choose" the flute instead, which became his main instrument from the age of nine until he stopped when he was twenty. When he was thirteen he started to sing in a rock band. That group ended after some years, but he never have stopped singing. From 1985 to 1987 he attended the Music school of Skurup, Sweden.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
