“One of the most promising songwriters of our time” – B.Y.E Magazine Germany
“Try listening without getting goosebumps” – London Free Press
MISSISSAUGA, ON: ‘We Are The Reckoning’ is a striking new collection of 11 original songs from Peter Katz, JUNO-nominated singer-songwriter and crowned Best Male Vocalist in the popular NOW Magazine Best-Of-Toronto 2014 reader’s poll.
Over the past decade, Peter Katz has seen his albums debut at #1 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts; he’s shared the stage and studio with the likes of Academy Award Winner Glen Hansard (Once, The Swell Season), Juno Award-Winners The Good Lovelies, Polaris-Prize nominated Melissa McCelland (Whitehorse) and the Legendary Garth Hudson from The Band. He’s toured all over the world, regularly playing to capacity crowds, and has managed to build an impressive fan-base of loyal listeners, selling over 25,000 copies of his discs mostly from the stage, one show at a time. Peter spent the better part of the past 2 years writing more than 50 new songs while collaborating on some of them with an impressive list of co-writers in Los Angeles, London, and at home in Toronto.
Never content to sit still for long, Peter Katz has his eyes firmly set on the future: “I’m in a different place than I was when I started 10 years ago. I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into and I maybe didn’t always put my focus in the right place. Now I know what this thing is, I know the relentlessness that’s required, I know it’s not a race, and I know that the music has to come first. I feel like I finally did that with this record. I took my time. I shook myself up, threw myself into unfamiliar territory and took some big risks. Now that I’m on the other side of it, I can see why it was the right thing to do, and I’m more excited than ever to share what we made.”
