I had never even heard of Leonard Cohen until a few years ago, despite being a lover of most genres of music.
A local performer with an angelic voice (Chelsea Berry, also available on Amazon) sang a few of his songs during some of her performances, so I made a mental note to find out more about him.
Well, it was only this past week that I got around to it and all I can say is I wish I had known of him much earlier in my life. His music is like nothing I've ever heard, in that it "speaks" directly to me. It is soulful, wise, thought-provoking, soothing, ethereal ...
So at age 62, here I am a hook, line and sinker Leonard Cohen fan. I have much listening to catch up on!
