Cohen, Leonard - Songs From A Room
Leonard Cohen (b. 21st September 1934 in Montréal, Quebec, Canada) is a poet, novelist and musician. His musical career has largely overshadowed his prior work as a poet and novelist, although he continued to publish poetry sporadically after his breakthrough in the music industry.
Musically, Cohen's early songs are based in folk music, in terms of both melody and instrumentation; from the 1970s, though, his work begins to show the influence of various types of popular and cabaret music. Since the 1980s he has typically sung in a deep bass register, accompanied by synthesisers and female backing vocals.
The critic Bruce Eder wrote an assessment of Cohen's overall career in popular music, writing, '(Cohen is) one of the most fascinating and enigmatic … singer/songwriters of the late '60s … (and) has retained an audience across four decades of music-making … Second only to Bob Dylan (and perhaps Paul Simon) (in terms of influence), he commands the attention of critics and younger musicians more firmly than any other musical figure from the 1960s who is still working at the outset of the 21st century.'
