Happy Birthday, Leonard Cohen

It's September 21st, so that brings us again to Leonard Cohen's birthday!

One of the key musical influences on my work, I've appreciated the way his voice has been able to shift and evolve in different ways over the extensive span of his career. One of the great albums that can serve as an introduction to his artistic themes and priorities is his "Best of"collection which indeed contains so many of his songs that are now often covered by other musicians and artists.
