The recent death of Leonard Cohen back in November of 2016 was a great loss for everyone in the industry and fans everywhere. A poet and a songwriter, he is well known for writing his song “Hallelujah” which has been covered by hundreds of musicians such as Rufus Wainwright and Willie Nelson and many others. Cohen is also known for his songs, “I’m Your Man” and “Ballad of the Absent Mare.” You’ve heard the saying that some wines get better with age? The same thing happened with Cohen and his deep rugged voice.
Cohen won many literature awards and have been inducted in both the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his folk and soft rock music that have been covered for their great lyrics. The world lost a great writer that day but people will still be singing his songs.
