UPCOMING TOUR DATES WITH PETER KATZ
"He's more popular in his home province of Québec than he is in the rest of the country [...] and that's a damn shame considering his DIY-aesthetic and self-taught musical style falls right in line with the mythos and hype that we ascribe to some of this country's legendary singer-songwriters. Think Joni, think Leonard, think Neil." - Judith Lynch, First Play, CBC Music
FEBRUARY 22, 2017 - TORONTO, ON - One year after the release of his 5th album, Superfolk, singer-songwriter Ian Kelly revisits four of those tracks in remixes created by Montréal DJs.

The SuperFolk Remixes EP plunges us into a world of electronic sounds, where Ian's folk songs take on a lounge ambiance. Highlighting a fresh new side of Ian's work.
“My brother is a DJ in some of Montréal’s coolest spots. He’s always introducing me to tons of interesting things whipped up by his DJ/ producer friends. Naturally, I left it to him when it came to contacting a few of them, to see if they were inspired by the songs on SuperFolk.” - Ian Kelly

I Love You More - Lesko Cerf
