ABOUT

ME

Kaisa Mäensivu is an award-winning Finnish jazz bassist and composer. She performs with a variety of groups in Europe and in the U.S. While Kaisa mostly performs as a side musician, Kaisa’s Machine is her main project as a leader.  In 2018 she won the 1st prize at the Riga Jazz Stage international Bass contest. In the same year she was awarded as the 'Rising Star' at the Pori Jazz Festival.

Kaisa is currently based in New York, where she finished her Master’s degree at the highly acclaimed Manhattan School of Music in May 2017, studying in the guidance of professors such as Dave Liebman and Ron Carter.

 

Kaisa has recorded with a great variety of artists, including her own group. Kaisa's Machine released its debut album In the Key of K via Eclipse Music in December 2017. The album is available on all streaming platforms. 

"Mäensivun soitto on äärimmäisen tarkkaa mutta letkeää. Harvan käsissä kontrabasso soi yhtä vangitsevasti ja karismaattisesti. Hyvin svengaavaa." - Arttu Seppänen, HS
