Canadian-born keyboardist/producer Gonzales took up residence in Europe and became known for his often comical live shows. He collaborated with labelmate Peaches in 2000 and released his debut full-length that same year. As a producer, Gonzales worked on Feist's Let It Die and recorded with Jane Birkin and Christophe Willem. When Gonzales returned to his own career in 2005, he issued the most distinctive record of his career, Solo Piano, which found him asserting the influences of French impressionists Erik Satie and Maurice Ravel. His debut for Mercury, 2008's Soft Power, was an album of assured piano-led pop that channeled the production gloss of '70s and '80s pop/rock. ~ Diana Potts
