Format: Audio CD
Steve Katz is a New York-based singer, songwriter, and guitarist. He performs regularly at venues throughout the city. Raised in Belgium, Katz has played guitar since he was 14 years old. "I knew from the very first chord I learned that making music was my calling," says Katz.

While growing up in Brussels, Katz was a music junkie and spent countless hours listening to Pink Floyd, Santana, the Eagles and Supertramp (his mother's favorite band), an influence for which Katz remains eternally grateful to her. Music stores became his second home, and Katz set out on an endless journey of discovering new artists from all genres -- a journey that has guided and shaped his own development as a musician today.

Katz has also drawn inspiration for his diverse style of music through his extensive world travels (He has an ongoing love affair with India.) Beautiful and rich melodies along with his own distinctive style of guitar work complement Katz's soulful voice. A hint of Irish and Spanish influence is evident in much of his work, and Katz's style can be likened to Cat Stevens, Jose Gonzalez, Damien Rice, David Grey and James Blunt.

Experimenting and creating new melodies are at the heart of Katz's passion for songwriting. Hope, love and existential questions are common themes in his songs. Katz works with various lyricists (Jonathan Klein, Jeannie Reed, Jane Jacobs, Harry Sauer), but the title cut on his new EP Barricades illustrates his own craftsmanship with both music and lyrics.

On the new Barricades EP, Katz provides poignant vocals and plays acoustic guitar.
