About Leonard Cohen:
A celebrated singer/songwriter of the classic 1960s generation, Cohen is beyond comparison and a true original, providing some of music and literature’s most illuminating writing on love, sex, death and religion.
Albums like Songs Of Leonard Cohen (1967), Songs Of Love And Hate (1970) and I’m Your Man (1990), right up to 1992’s The Future and 2004’s Dear Heather are considered visionary classics. Uniquely for a revered musician, Cohen’s literary plaudits rival those for his music.
His songs have been famously covered by the great and the good, each version a fascinating attempt to move closer to Cohen’s enigmatic muse. From Judy Collins’ Suzanne to Jeff Buckley’s seminal rendition of Hallelujah, Cohen’s songs have travelled as far and wide as their author.
U2, REM, Sting, Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright and the late Johnny Cash are among other famous devotees.
