Kristian Braathen was born and raised in Sechelt. Since leaving in 1995 to attend Capilano University for Jazz Studies, Braathen has become a fixture on the Vancouver music scene.
During his studies at Capilano University, he studied with local jazz drummers Don Reid, Dave Robbins and Blaine Wikjord. While on hiatus from his studies at Capilano University, Kristian travelled the world on several cruise line companies from 1998 to 1999.
After graduating from Capilano University in 2003, he studied with world-renowned jazz drummer, Jeff Hamilton (Oscar Peterson, Diana Krall, Ray Brown.) In 2016, Kristian received a study grant from the BC Arts Council to travel to New York City to study with the great jazz drummer, Kenny Washington (Tony Bennett, Bill Charlap Trio).
From 2005 to present, he has led his own jazz trio, Kristian Braathen Trio. With influences from Oscar Peterson, Ahmad Jamal and Bill Charlap, this stellar trio emphasizes great feel and unique arrangements of jazz standards, popular songs and original compositions.
In October 2015, Braathen and his trio released their first full-length album, entitled Tempus Fugit. Joining Braathen for this recording were Canadian jazz greats, Miles Black on piano and Jodi Proznick on acoustic bass.
