peter katz web[From Wikipedia] 2012 JUNO Nominee[1] and Emerging Artist of the Year nominee at the Canadian Folk Music Awards ,[2] recording artist Peter Katz captivates listeners with his unique brand of contemporary folk music. Playing 150+ dates a year all over the world,[3] Katz’s remarkable grassroots efforts have resulted in him selling over 15,000 copies of his discs and sharing the stage with such notable artists as The Swell Season (The Frames), Dan Mangan, The Good Lovelies, Joel Plaskett, Bahamas, Lucky Fonz III, Donovan Frankenreiter and the legendary Garth Hudson from The Band (to name a few) and more recently, members of Levon Helm’s band (on stage with Glen Hansard’s band).[4]
Peter’s 2010 studio record ‘First of the Last to Know’ debuted at #1 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts and features a guest appearance by Academy Award Winner Glen Hansard (The Swell Season, ‘Once’), JUNO Award Winners The Good Lovelies and Melissa McClelland (Whitehorse, Sarah Mclachlan).[5] 2011 saw Peter release a live CD/DVD entitled “Peter Katz and Friends: Live at the Music Gallery”, an intimate snapshot of Peter playing for a room full of people. The concert was recorded in front of a sold-out crowd and reveals an artist at home on the stage, connecting with an audience like few performers can. It also recently earned him a JUNO nomination for Music DVD of the Year.[6] Not one to waste any time, Peter has a brand new studio album called ‘Still Mind Still’ which was released on April 24, 2012. This new collection of songs was recorded mostly live off the floor at a cabin in the woods and surrounded by a stunning atmospheric production thanks to producer Rob Szabo.[7]
