He is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in performance at the Peabody Institute of Music of the Johns Hopkins University.

Stay Thirsty Magazine is pleased to name Kahler Suzuki as a SPOTLIGHT ARTIST for Spring 2018 because he possesses that “special something” that magnetizes an audience when he performs and it should serve him well in the years to come as he builds his career in music. While the video maybe homemade, his talent is certainly not.
