We Are the Reckoning
Nice to see that hard-working and talented troubadour (and JUNO nominee) Peter Katz is now signed to Maple Music Recordings. The first fruits of that link can be heard on his excellent new album We Are The Reckoning, the follow-up to 2012’s acclaimed Still Mind Still. Katz's style is a blend of folk and adult MOR pop, built around mellow vocals and nicely-crafted compositions. "Dark" features guest vocals from wonderful Scottish singer Rachel Sermanni, while Royal Wood appears on the first single "Brother", another winning track (Wood is an apt reference point for Katz's style). The clip for "Brother" has notched over 100k YouTube views and the track has fared well on CBC Radio 2. An artist to be reckoned with.
Katz has built a European audience, and he starts a tour there in Amsterdam on April 9, at the legendary Paradiso. He then takes his full band out on an extensive cross-Canada tour, from May 1-June 21. Check here for details.
