Following the success of his 2018 EP ‘Waterfall’ and the 2019 single release, ‘Back From Nothing’ (with JANEVA), Melbourne-based songwriter and producer Katz returns with his stunning new EP Only You. The upcoming EP will be a new beginning for Katz, and sees the artist elegantly traversing a variety of genres to place him at the forefront of Australia’s electronic pop scene. The sophomore EP’s release will mark another milestone for the Melbourne Music Prize-nominated jazz pianist turned electronic artist, who has continued to rise since the release of his 2018 debut EP, ‘Waterfall’. In the short time that has followed, Katz has received airplay on triple j, widespread support from Spotify, with over 2.8 million streams and several placements on their New Music Friday playlist, as well as music video placements on MTV and Rage.
