Born in Manchester, England, Martin Kaye is a songwriter, pianist, singer and all-round show-man. From as early as he can remember, he has always been creating music and performing. He would seek out every musical opportunity he could find, with the help of his extrovert grandmother and boogie-woogie playing father. It began with singing lessons at three years old, and piano lessons at seven. Local youth theatre groups held auditions for musicals, and this is where he discovered his love for performing. Embracing the eccentricity of Daddy Brubeck in Sweet Charity, accompanying Dorothy along her travels as the Tin Man in The Wizard Of Oz and hoping to impress as the poor, nervous tailor Motel (and later in his school life, the fiercely traditional father of five Tevye) in Fiddler On The Roof were among some of his earliest memories on the stage, and his introduction to showbiz had begun.
