The son of legendary poet-balladeer Leonard Cohen, Adam Cohen will embark on his first Australian tour showcasing the unique and distinctive voice that has made him a success in his own right.
Australian audiences will witness Cohen as he lives up to his famous family legacy. Born in Montreal, Canada in 1972 to Leonard Cohen and then-wife Suzanne Elrod, Adam has been a musician ever since he could walk, "always banging on teacups and the backs of chairs, stomping my foot and trying to whistle".
With the release of his latest album, Like A Man (available through Shock) in October this year, Cohen is embracing his family's inheritance with an intimate album of romantic poetic folk-pop that has echoes of his father Leonard's finest work. The first single from the album is the stunning love song 'What Other Guy'.
"Adam Cohen is finally ready to follow in his dad's footsteps... his new record is one truly fit to bear the family name." - Sunday Times
