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. It was a very jazzorientated education, but when he persuaded a bass and drums and piano to join him playing a standard on his tenor saxophone (which he started playing when he was fifteen), but in an Ayleruesqe way, they laughed him to pieces. That was the years of “Spyro Gyra” and fancy keyboards.
