Synopsis: On Tour with Leonard Cohen documents the wildly successful Leonard Cohen World Tour through the eyes of his friend and longtime collaborator, Sharon Robinson. In 2004 Cohen's manager stole his life savings, forcing him out of planned retirement into what has now become a legendary six-year sojourn.
Sharon Robinson has been associated with Cohen since the Field Commander Cohen tour of 1979-80, first as a singer and subsequently as his co-writer and producer. She was drafted into the current iteration of Cohen's band, The Unified Heart Touring Company, from the onset, and has literally been at his side for over 400 shows. Robinson has captured her experience behind the scenes with the complete freedom afforded her by her unique position.
On Tour with Leonard Cohen is an impressionistic view of what it was like to be on tour with the legendary singer-songwriter poet. Robinson reveals the nitty-gritty of day-to-day life of the road, onstage and behind the scenes, and the chemistry of Cohen and his supporting artists, together on an incredible journey across the globe, their hearts and minds focused on the next show.
About the Author:
Sharon Robinson has been associated with Leonard Cohen since touring with him as a singer in 1979-80. She co-wrote and produced Cohen's 2001 album, Ten New Songs, (one of Rolling Stone's "Top 100 Albums of the Decade"), and co-authored the Cohen classics, "Everybody Knows" and "Waiting for the Miracle." A Grammy winning songwriter, Robinson's work has been covered by artists as diverse as Patti LaBelle, Don Henley, Aaron Neville, and Roberta Flack to name a few. Robinson's solo album, Everybody Knows (2008), garnered wide critical acclaim, as have her recent performances on the Cohen World Tour. Sharon once worked as the staff photographer at the world-famous Coconut Grove nightclub in Los Angeles. Sharon is currently working on a new album that will be released in early 2015.
