Phishbacher

Phishbacher have set out to re-invent the piano trio. Influenced by Herbie Hancock, EST and Michel Camilo, they have merged the ethereal with the groove, brain with guts, and spirit with virtuosity. The versatile pianist, keyboardist & bandleader Walter Fischbacher can best be described as the groove master of keys; Having mastered both pianistic technique and the art of the backbeat he has set out to conquer the world with his trio.

Originally from Austria, Fischbacher relocated to New York in 1994. Since then, his performance and recording credits have grown to include internationally acclaimed musicians such as Randy Brecker, George Garzone, Ingrid Jensen, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Vienna Art Orchestra, Tim Lefebvre, Billy Harper, etc.
