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.”
