Oh, that voice!
It’s a fairly obvious first reaction, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself uttering a similar expression upon hearing Lars Katz’ latest full-length, The Veil.
If you’re wondering where Katz has been all your life, you’ve probably heard from him without even knowing it. The very definition of a finger in every pie, Katz’ private consulting and contract work has led to appearances on albums such as Anberlin’s Cities (gang vocals on “Godspeed”), Fair’s The Best Worst-Case Scenario (acoustic guitars on “Pause” and “Confidently Dreaming”), and even the soundtrack of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (guitars on “More Than It Seems” by Kutless). He’s also helped to engineer and/or mix many of Tooth and Nail’s recent releases. I swear, the man doesn’t sleep.
Oh-and-did-I-mention: that voice!
It’s tough to call Lars Katz a secret. He’s had a hand in a lot of the music you’re probably listening to and he doesn’t fall into that vast and mysterious category of “unsigned.” Still, with one of the strongest voices in operation, both he and The Veil deserve much more of our attention.
