"Fall Apart" is iconic from the start. With the strong opening chords and then Jeremy Voltz's vocals kicking in, it just feels good to listen to.
The sentimentality of the indie influence, the power of the soul styling, Voltz is this perfect combination. This song is serotonin when life is falling apart. I felt like this track can resonate with any listener at any age and stage in life. The message is open and accepting that sometimes life doesn't go smoothly or even to plan; this song is a great reflection of trying to get back on track.
Produced by multiple JUNO Awards winner Michael Phillip Wojewoda (Barenaked Ladies, Buffy Sainte-Marie, The Jerry Cans), Weekender is a love letter and a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to his band with “Fall Apart” serving as an apology to his wife for the moments he feels lost internally. “I hope this album takes away a little bit of the loneliness we all feel,” shares Voltz.
Burned-out mathematician turned indie-soul artist, Jeremy Voltz’s music is inspired by thinking deeply about the people in his life and what he’d love to have the courage to say to them. Reminiscent of Jeff Buckley, Hozier, and Stevie Wonder, he has a voice that is powerful and haunting, delivering hook-heavy melodies with universal, heartfelt lyrics.
As a vocalist, Voltz has toured the UK, Italy, Japan, Mexico, and across the US and Canada. He has performed for huge crowds on some of Toronto’s greatest stages, including the Sony Centre, NXNE, Nathan Phillips Square, Koerner Hall, and live on the CBC at the Glenn Gould Studio. When not laying-down lush harmonies in a solo looping set or playing with his upbeat five-piece band, he keeps busy as a founding member of award-winning vocal ensemble, Countermeasure.
A signed artist with Hyvetown Music Publishing, Voltz has also gained notoriety as a songwriter. His songs have been featured on national commercials as well as on film, television, and radio by companies such as Hallmark, TLC, the NFL, and CBC Radio. Currently featured on Spotify’s Discover Weekly, his uplifting acoustic-folk anthem, “One Day at a Time,” has millions of worldwide listens and has won several songwriting awards. It also recently inspired a successful illustrated children’s book.
