Marc Cohn Coming To Lafayette
Marc Cohn, know for his hit song “Walking In Memphis”, is coming to Lafayette on March 26th.As a songwriter and singer, Cohn combines the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. He’s a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales. He similarly finds the emotional essence in the vintage songs he’s just recorded, even as he brilliantly reshapes his source material.
Released in 2010, Listening Booth:1970 ultimately brings Cohn back to where he began–writing songs like ‘Walking In Memphis’ which speaks so eloquently about the transformative, healing power of music. Like that hit single, Listening Booth:1970 is really the soundtrack to Cohn’s life. As Cohn reflects, “It seemed like such a natural progression for me to do a record like this because, if you’ve been following my records from my first single, I have been paying tribute to musicians through my writing all along, from Al Green to Elvis to Levon Helm to Charlie Christian. It’s really been a touchstone for me. Now I’m just repaying a debt of gratitude to the artists who’ve changed my life and taught me how to do what I do.”
