Finding An Unexpected Voice

Leonard Cohen, as a struggling poet and novelist, recorded this first album at the age of 33! To his overwhelming surprise, Cohen became a cult sensation and early in his career could hardly manage to play through his songs in front of his adoring audiences. Leonard Cohen's songs, with sparse folk instrumentation and Cohen's nearly drab voice, stand upon a lyrical passion that makes the songs timeless, vastly affecting, and so so important. I can hardly believe this year is the first that I've heard them. Please enjoy.

Sad Music Monday

A year of great losses. Leonard Cohen passed away on November 10th, shortly after the release of You Want It Darker. Just as Bowie had; an absolutely monumental singer-songwriter leaving us with a beautifully aware farewell album. I think it's always important to remember, so I suggest doing so or listening for the first time to Songs of Leonard Cohen.
