Marc Cohn

Oct 23 , 2017 · McGLOHON THEATER at Spirit Square

Prices begin at $25.00

With Special Guests Reinaldo Brahn and Jim Brock

Presented by: MaxxMusic

After winning a GRAMMY for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohnsolidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters,combining 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 distilluniversal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales.

Cohn followed up his platinum-selling debut with two more releases in the 1990s, atwhich point TIME magazine called him ""one of the honest, emotional voices we need inthis decade"" and Bonnie Raitt declared, ""Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artistsI know. I love his songs, he's an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerizeevery audience he plays for.""

Raitt, James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Patty Griffin all made guest appearances on Cohn’s early records for Atlanta, as his reputation as an artist and performer continued to grow. In 1998, Cohn took a decade-long sabbatical from recording, ending in 2007 with Join the Parade. Inspired by the horrific events followingHurricane Katrina and his own near fatal shooting just weeks before, Parade is his most moving and critically acclaimed record to date.

About his album Listening Booth: 1970, a collection of reimagined classics from that seminal year in music, Rolling Stone said, “Cohn has one of rock’s most soulful croons –a rich immediately recognizable tenor that makes these songs his own.” In late 2014,Cohn released, “The Coldest Corner in the World,” the title song to the documentaryTree Man and his first original song released in more than seven years.

On March 25, 2016, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his platinum-selling debutalbum, Marc proudly released Careful What you Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities and thebonus album, Evolution of a Record, featuring never-before-heard songs and demosdating back to years before his debut album and the Grammy Award that followed.
