Artist of the Day: Leonard Cohen

posted by Shane German on 01/06/2020

One of the most fascinating and enigmatic singer/songwriters of the late '60s, Leonard Cohen retained an audience across six decades of music-making, interrupted by various digressions into personal and creative exploration, all of which have only added to the mystique surrounding him. He commanded the attention of critics and younger musicians more firmly than any other musical figure from the '60s who continued to work in the 21st century.

Cohen, also an established novelist and poet, found literary accomplishments that far exceeded those of Bob Dylan or most anyone else who one cares to mention in music.

In his lifetime, Cohen released 14 studio albums with the most recent, Thanks for the Dance, released November of 2019, two years after his death.

Thanks for the Dance has been added to the WYCE Library.
