Leonard Cohen Tickets
Leonard Cohen is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, poet, and novelist known for his writings on spirituality, alienation, love, and sexuality. He was born in September 21,1934 in Westmount, Quebec. His middle-class Jewish background had provided the encouraging atmosphere to his interest in literature. He studied poetry and music in highschool and was drawn into the works of Federico Garcia Lorca. He learned to play guitar and played with local folk musicians. But he was particularly fascinated by flamenco music after befriending a Spanish guitarist.
Cohen studied at McGill University in the early ‘50s and became popular for his literary talents which won him the Chester MacNaughton Prize for Creative Writing for his poems. He graduated in 1955 with a B.A. degree and published his first book of poetry, Let Us Compare Mythologies in 1956, a collection of poem written when he was fifteen to twenty.
Cohen’s unfavorable status as a writer prompted him to move to the United States in 1967 to become a folk music singer-songwriter. He became a part of the painter, Andy Warhol’s “Factory Crowd” of avantgarde artists, writers, models, and all types. Eventually, Cohen was discovered by a Columbia Records representative at one of his performances and was signed to a contract. Cohen's first album was Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967). It became a cult classic in the US and the UK.
Aside from his successful North American and European tours, a highlight early in his music career was a performance at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970.
Cohen’s evolution in style and substance followed along the changing times. His more traditional Recent Song (1979) blended acoustic style with jazz and Oriental and Mediterranean influences. I'm Your Man (1988), was filled with synthesizers; a lyrical social commentary and dark humor relevant to the Reagan era.
Cohen, like Bob Dylan, has reached listeners across generations worldwide, ever-inspiring a new generation of poets and musicians. He has been inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Leonard Cohen came out of retirement a couple years ago and he has been packing auditoriums and halls ever since.
