The most incomparable, enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural songwriter the English speaking world has ever known. Revered and covered by the entire music community, Leonard Cohen’s exact sense of prose, his wry humour and his courage to wrestle with the unspoken. Forgiving human frailty with the brush of each line.

His recent spectacular world tour of stadium venues has been successful beyond belief but has not, with regret, exposed the solitary inner strength of the songs in their original perfect form.

Keith James; with a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the pure song gives you a concert of this amazing material in the most personal, intimate and sensitive way imaginable.

‘certainly the UK’s most celebrated and evocative interpreter of golden music’The Guardian

‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’The Independent

‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’Sunday Times

‘a sensitive and pleasingly understated delivery, all the better that the songs might speak for themselvesAcoustic Magazine
