Marc Cohn Background
Marc Cohn's passion for pop music dates
back a long time. The singer, who grew up in Ohio, said, "I was hooked from day one. My older brother had a band that rehearsed
in our basement so I heard Bacharach, The Beatles, Ray Charles and Motown coming up through the floorboards from the time
I was six years old. By the time I was eleven though, The Beatles were breaking up and singer-songwriters were breaking through,
and a lot of that music really resonated for me."
Cohn picked up the guitar and began penning songs when he was in junior
high school. It was then he performed with the Doanbrook Hotel, a local band. Eventually, Cohn taught himself how to play
the piano while he was studying at Oberlin College. He then took up his studies at the University of California in L.A., where
he gigged at coffeehouses in the area.
He ended up relocating to the Big Apple, demoing tunes for a number of songwriters,
like Mike Stoller, Jimmy Webb and Jerry Leiber. At first, Cohn worked as a backup artist for recording sessions. He cemented
his professional foothold after Cohn put together a cover band comprised of 14-pieces, the Supreme Court. The band even gigged
at the high-profile wedding of Caroline Kennedy in 1986. A year later, Cohn contributed two tunes, "Pumping Iron" and "One
Rock and Roll Too Many" to Music and Songs from Starlight Express.
Cohn served as a backing pianist in 1989 for artist
Tracy Chapman on her sophomore album. That gig paved the way for a contract deal with Atlantic Records in the early 1990s.
In 1991, Cohn dropped his eponymous solo album. The album was well-received, with "Walking in Memphis," landing at No. 13
on the pop chart. It was also given a nod for Best Pop Vocal and Song of the Year. By early 1992, Cohn claimed gold certification
and followed by platinum certification in 1996. Another milestone song for Cohn was "True Companion," a romantic tune, which
ended up on the Johnny Carson Tonight Show as part of a live marriage proposal. Cohn took home the 1991 Grammy Award for Best
New Artist. In the spring of 1993, Cohn's sophomore studio album, The Rainy Season, arrived, which featured musical luminaries,
Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt and David Crosby. The album scored the No. 63 spot on the album charts. For many years, Cohn laid
low, returning to the music scene with his Burning the Daze album. Pooling resources with his longtime colleague, producer
and storied musician John Leventhal, Cohn also welcomed contributions from other artists like Rosanne Cash. To support the
release, he embarked on tours in 1998.
Over the years, Cohn has lent his vocals to the works of Jackson Browne, Shawn
Colvin, Rosanne Cash and more.

The year 1970 turned out to be a landmark year for Cohn.
The songs that filled the airwaves during that time stuck with him infinitely. Cohn doesn't simply reinvent the sounds of
this iconic era. He alters the tunes from legends like Van Morrison, John Lennon, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Smokey Robinson,
Cat Stevens, Paul McCartney and Bread onListening Booth: 1970. Cohn takes these songs to a whole new level, adding his style
of soul, charm and warmth. But, Listening Booth: 1970 is just one of Cohn's hit albums. His other albums include: Marc Cohn
(1991); The Rainy Season (1993); Burning the Daze (1998); Marc Cohn Live 04/05 (2005); The Very Best of Marc Cohn (2006);
