Episode Guide »
ADAM COHEN is the son of the legendary songwriter Leonard Cohen. All his life Adam had sought an artistic space beyond the reach of his father's looming shadow. But in January 2007, at the age of 34, Adam Cohen owned up to his legacy. His new album Like A Man, is a "strikingly personal album" of ten intimate songs that is "truly fit to bear the family name" (Sunday Times of London) on Decca Records. Cohen had been writing these songs and poems for a number of years, but kept them hidden away. However, the birth of his son inspired a major change of heart in Cohen and he realized it was imperative that he make a record worthy of his father's legacy. LAC LA BELLE is an acoustic duo from Detroit, Michigan that juxtaposes the early decades of recorded rural American music with decaying Rustbelt aesthetic. A tradition is re-imagined- or maybe just resumed- in the 'future-rustic' swirl of accordion, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and resonator guitar. Their new album is Bring on the Light captures the drifting spirit of early America.
