Toronto-based artists Peter Katz and Emma-Lee will be performing April 4 at Fosters Inn as part of their spring 2013 co-headlining tour across Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.
Both are singer/songwriters with many credits to their names – be it JUNO or Canadian Folk Music Awards nominations, multiple film and television placements or sold-out shows.
Though their musical genres vary slightly – Katz tends to fall more into the folk/roots category whereas Lee leans toward soulful alt-country - their audiences are familiar with both artists.
Each will perform their own material, sometimes accompanied by the other, as well as some unexpected covers and new originals, which they will perform together.
Recently, Katz and Lee got together at the Toronto Zoo to film and record their inspired banjo and guitar cover of Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” which can be viewed online at www.southernsouls.ca/peter-katz-emma-lee/. The video is a glimpse into what audiences on attending the upcoming tour can expect to see and hear from the pair.
The two began collaborating after Lee, already a fan of Katz’s after discovering his music online, asked if he would sing on a track on her then-upcoming debut release, “Never Just A Dream” in 2010. The two hit it off creatively and have been collaborating both on stage and in songwriting ever since.
