NEW YORK (Macklam/Feldman Management PR) - The legendary Montreal-born singer/songwriter, author and poet shot to international attention in the mid-1960s via his poetry collections and bestselling novel Beautiful Losers. He made the transition to singer/songwriter in 1967 when Judy Collins, who'd recorded "Suzanne," introduced him during a Central Park concert. His 1968 Columbia Records debut, Songs of Leonard Cohen, established him as a world-class songsmith.
Over a long and varied career, Cohen has written nine books of poetry and two novels, and recorded over a dozen albums. Artists including Elton John, Don Henley, Willie Nelson, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Bono, Billy Joel, Jennifer Warnes, Aaron Neville, and R.E.M. have recorded his work.
Cohen's upcoming projects include a book, television special, DVD, CD album and extensive worldwide touring. He recently wrote and produced an album (Blue Alert) for former-background singer and jazz chanteuse Anjani. The Blue Alert project and Anjani are to be repped by Macklam/Feldman Management, as well.
Vancouver-based Macklam/Feldman Management represents a variety of internationally acclaimed artists, including Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, Diana Krall, Elvis Costello, The Tragically Hip, The Chieftains, and Ry Cooder.
