Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen is living a resurgence of interest in his life and music at the moment, touring the world with a very successful series of concerts, some recorded for radio and TV, that showcase his innovative, honest and spiritual music.

Since "Suzanne" became a folk music staple in the '60's, Cohen has reinvented the settings for his deep lyrical messages many times, ethno - folkie at one point, synth - driven at another. Always the melodies are memorable and the wedding of lyric and tune impeccable.

Cohen is often sited as a major inspiration by artists as disparate as U2, Elton John and Kris Kristofferson.
