Peter Katz has evolved from a nervous first-timer at an open mic night into to a Juno Award, Canadian Screen Award, and two-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominated singer-songwriter with five albums under his belt. He has toured the world for the past decade in support of his music, sharing the stage and studio with legendary musicians like Academy Award winner and Grammy nominee Glen Hansard, and Garth Hudson (from The Band). A gifted storyteller, Peter infuses his presentations with songs which inspire audiences to create their own path, overcome obstacles and find success in whatever they desire.

CBC Radio Host Tom Power called Mr. Katz’s latest release, We Are The Reckoning, “One of the most heartfelt, beautiful and vulnerable records of the year…an astonishing record,” and NOW Magazine named him “Best Male Vocalist” in Toronto. Mr. Katz’s songs have been used in movies and TV shows such as Reign, Felicity and Hello-Goodbye, as well as in CBC’s Olympic coverage in 2016.

As a speaker, Mr. Katz is a four-time TEDx fellow, who has given countless talks and workshops across Canada.
