Re: Nadine (NEeMA) tours in Europe

NEeMA got a better turnout at Pizza Express, even though there were still lots of empty seats. It was good to meet the other Forum members who turned up; namely Wendy Marshall plus Padma and her friend. We got an additional Leonard song at Pizza Express; NEeMA's version of "If it be your Will". NEeM...

Re: the beauty of our weapons

Of course Leonard (as I think he said himself) was talking about musical "weapons" rather then the kind that bring slaughter and destruction.

Nadine (NEeMA) in Ireland - April 11th & 13th

NEeMA is a wonderful artist and a lovely lady. Leonard co-produced her second album, and she performs several of his songs in concert - Avalanche, Famous Blue Raincoat, Anthem and If it Be Your Will. She also talks about her first meeting with Leonard. Sadly only about four people linked with the Fo...

Re: Nadine (NEeMA) tours in Europe

Wendy - Thanks for posting. I saw the ad earlier, and rang Pizza Express, but they told me that the website person isn't there to change it. There are still plenty of seats for the Soho gig. I've confirmed and you can just turn up and pay at the door (£15). Neema will be playing at 1.30 pm.

Re: Nadine (NEeMA) tours in Europe

Neema played a wonderful set in Stoke Newington tonight at a great little venue there. Her set included three Leonard songs (Avalanche, Famous Blue Raincoat, and best of all Anthem). She also played most of the great tracks from her last two albums. The audience was small but highly appreciative. If...

Re: Artists similar to Leonard Cohen

I posted quite a long post on the first page on this thread in 2004, and have just seen it for the first time in about 13 years! I've just noticed that about six years ago (in 2011), on page 4 of this thread, someone called "abrahammaslow" has repeated my earlier post word for word under their own p...

Re: Nadine (NEeMA) tours in Europe

I do hope that NEeMA gets the support she so deserves on this tour. Following her excellent "Watching You Think" album (co-produced by Leonard) she made another fine album "Painting My Wall Gold" last year. This was released with sponsorship by Pledge Music, and there was a great response on the For...

Re: Julie Felix - Leonard Tribute London 6th February

Thanks go to Malcolm Stern for organizing this wonderful "Alternatives" evening at the beautiful St. James Church in Piccadilly. To set the scene, "You Want it Darker" was played in the background, before and after the performances. The evening opened with Nick Fry performing a competent version of ...

Re: Julie Felix - Leonard Tribute London 6th February

Julie will be singing the songs of Leonard that she has recorded, as well as the song that she wrote for Marianne. She will be talking about meeting Leonard in the Sixties, and meeting him again at Manchester in 2007, when I brought her to his art exhibition. Felicity Buirski will be singing a song ...
