Leonard Cohen

1934 -

Origin: Quebec, Canada

Main instrument: Vocal

Genre: Folk/Country

This Montreal poet, novelist and singer commanded attention with the singular quality of his voice and stroke of his pen. In the mid-1960s, after making his mark as a writer, Cohen chose to dedicate himself to music. His bare-bones folk-style serves as a ground for his words on the human experience, a commentary at once beautiful and profound. Among his best known songs are Suzanne, So Long Marianne, and Hallelujah. While his body of work has not been highly successful in a commercial sense, he remains a source of fascination to legions of devotees.
