Peter Katz

Peter Katz is a JUNO Award, Canadian Screen Award and 2-time Canadian Folk Music Award-nominated singer-songwriter who has spent the past 10+ years touring nationally and internationally to capacity crowds. He has sold out premiere venues from the National Arts Centre in Ottawa to the Harbourfront Centre Theatre in Toronto, to the legendary Paradiso in Amsterdam.  In 2014, he was also crowned Best Male Vocalist in the NOW Magazine 2014 reader’s poll (readership of over half a million).

Hailed by CBC Radio 2’s Tom Power as “one of the most heartfelt, beautiful and vulnerable records of the year… an astonishing record” Peter’s latest release ‘We Are The Reckoning’ was co-produced by Royal Wood and Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Cary Brothers), released through Cadence Music/Fontana North, and supported by a full-band tour across Europe and Canada including several sold-out shows.  The lead single ‘Brother’, a duet with Royal Wood, peaked at #3 on the national Top 20 CBC Radio 2 charts, was ranked #3 on their 2015 best-of-the-year list and the accompanying video achieved over 100,000 views in its first 6 weeks of release.

Peter has shared the stage and studio with the likes of Academy Award Winner Glen Hansard (Once), legendary icon Garth Hudson (from The Band), Juno-Award winners The Good Lovelies, and more.

Peter is also a 2-time TEDx fellow and gifted public speaker, being called on to give keynote talks and presentations to everyone from the 4000 delegates at the International Aeronautical Federation Conference (alongside Cirque Du Soleil and Commander Chris Hadfield) to countless workshops and presentations across the country. 

“If talent alone ensures success, then Peter Katz will soon be a name of everyone’s lips” The Record
