The Frontier Touring Company is proud to announce singer songwriter Adam Cohen will head to Australian shores for a series of intimate shows next March. The son of legendary poet-balladeer Leonard Cohen, Adam Cohen will embark on his first Australian tour showcasing the unique and distinctive voice that has made him a success in his own right.

Australian audiences will witness Cohen as he lives up to his famous family legacy. Born in Montreal, Canada in 1972 to Leonard Cohen and then-wife Suzanne Elrod, Adam has been a musician ever since he could walk, “always banging on teacups and the backs of chairs, stomping my foot and trying to whistle”.

With the release of his latest album, Like A Man (available through Shock) in October this year, Cohen is embracing his family’s inheritance with an intimate album of romantic poetic folk-pop that has echoes of his father Leonard’s finest work. The first single from the album is the stunning love song ‘What Other Guy’.

“Adam Cohen is finally ready to follow in his dad’s footsteps…his new record is one truly fit to bear the family name.” - SUNDAY TIMES

“Cohen sets about quiet rapprochement with his DNA… Cohen Junior’s best work to date.” - MOJO

For Adam Cohen, fatherhood has been a major influence; thoughts of his own son and his future have encouraged a further appreciation of his father and his music legacy. From the artist himself:

“I was never terribly preoccupied with living up to my family name, and not until I was sitting at the dinner table with my father to my left and my two-year-old son to my right, did I realise I really wanted to, and was ready to”.

Adam’s unique perspective on life is apparent in his intimate and honest style of song writing. His father’s influence also resonates through the romantic yet shrewdly reflective songs on Like A Man Adam sees the album as his ”... proudest artistic achievement yet”.

Australian singer/songwriter Gossling will be the very special guest of Adam Cohen. Gossling’s debut EP If You Can’t Whistle garnered plenty of attention on Triple J and Australian radio and with her tender, sweet style, Gossling’s song writing is both distinctive and alluring. She mixes heart-felt lyrics with graceful and memorable melodies. She is truly an artist to watch out for.

Don’t miss your chance to see the first Australian shows of a legend in the making. See Adam Cohen as he embarks on an intimate and special series of Australian shows.
