Sharon Robinson Kicks off her solo tour with a photo show and booksigning of her new release "On Tour With Leonard Cohen"
DECEMBER 13, 1-4pm
Grammy-winning songwriter, singer and pianist Sharon Robinson has worked and toured with Leonard Cohen since joining the Field Commander Cohen Tour as a backup singer in 1979. She has now been at Cohen's side for over 400 shows, most recently on the legendary six-year Leonard Cohen World Tour that began in 2004.
Robinson co-wrote and produced Cohen's 2001 album, Ten New Songs, named one of Rolling Stone's "Top 100 Albums of the Decade," and co-authored the Cohen classics "Everybody Knows" and "Waiting for the Miracle." Her own songs have also been recorded by a host of artists including the Temptations, the Pointer Sisters, Ute Lemper, Aaron Neville, Randy Crawford and Don Henley.
Now Robinson begins her own tour with performances in LA and NYC and a premiere photography exhibit and booksigning of her new book On Tour with Leonard Cohen at the Morrison Hotel Gallery. Sharon's photography reveals rarely-seen moments of daily life of the road, onstage and behind the scenes, and illustrates the chemistry between Cohen and his band. Robinson's second solo album will be released in 2015.
