SHARON ROBINSON: “A Thousand Kisses Deep – My Time with Leonard Cohen”

From Sharon:
I wanted to let you know that I’ll be touring soon in North America with a new solo show called, “A Thousand Kisses Deep - My Time with Leonard Cohen.”

It’s an hour-long show consisting of stories and music, a loving tribute to my collaborator and friend.

- I will send full details shortly, including show info and ticket links.

Sharon Robinson is a Grammy-winning songwriter, singer and record producer. While she is best known as a frequent writing collaborator with Leonard Cohen, she has also written songs for a number of chart-topping artists including The Pointer Sisters, Aaron Neville, Brenda Russell, Diana Ross, Don Henley, Michael Bolton, Randy Crawford, Patti LaBelle, Roberta Flack, The Temptations, and others.

“Co-writer of Everybody Knows, My Secret Life, Waiting for the Miracle, Alexandra Leaving, Boogie Street, so many other tunes I’m honored to sing, my friend and collaborator, the incomparable Sharon Robinson”
– Leonard Cohen


Sharon also toured extensively with Cohen from 2008 to 2013, doing backing vocals and solos for millions of fans around the world in arenas and stadiums, including Madison Square Garden, Coachella, Radio City, Royal Albert Hall, Red Rocks, the O2 Arenas, and Radio City Music Hall. Leonard Cohen’s fans have fast become Sharon’s fans, many of whom have expressed a great interest in hearing more from Sharon Robinson both musically and to hear her intimate perspective on the many years of working with Leonard Cohen. As a result, Sharon has decided to share the story of her collaboration with Cohen in a brand-new show called, “A Thousand Kisses Deep – My Time with Leonard Cohen”. She will take us through their nearly 40-year collaboration with a behind-the-scenes narrative, combined with performances of songs they wrote together and photographic imagery.

In recent years, Sharon has toured on her own, supporting her albums, “Everybody Knows,” and “Caffeine,” playing venues from 150-350 capacity. In 2016, as part of a 20-city tour, she sold out 2 nights at the 350 cap Minard Theater in Ghent, Belgium, and had similar successes around Europe and North America.

Please Sharon, do bring your show to UK. I went to Perla's show in London recently, at the Union Chapel, and the atmosphere was fantastic. Can't imagine it would be any less magical for you if you come.
