Kiefer is an LA scene Grammy winning pianist and producer. Aside from his solo releases on Stones Throw Records, he is also a frequent collaborator with Mndsgn’s live trio, among others. He began playing piano as a child and producing beats at around age twelve, moving from San Diego to LA to study under renowned jazz guitarist Kenny Burrell at UCLA’s Jazz Studies program. There, he started thinking about the connection between the jazz piano he studied and the beats he created outside of school. While his peers were performing over live instrumentation, Kiefer produced electronic beats free from sampled melodies or drum breaks and perfected his beats education at the famous LA club Low End Theory.

Kiefer has collaborated with artists like Kaytranada, Knxwledge, Blue Lab Beats, Theo Croker, Terrace Martin, and many more and his playful take on jazz, piano, and instrumental hip-hop make him a welcome and different addition to the LA beat scene.

In 2020, he won a GRAMMY for Best R&B Album for his production work on Anderson .Paak’s Ventura. As a teacher of music, he regularly shares his insights via Instagram Live and collaborates with the followers on his Twitch channel.
