D’Arrietta and his band provide gutsy and arresting interpretations of Leonard Cohen's powerful works, framed by a personal narrative and poetic recitations.
The stories give an insight into Cohen's life and the motivations behind the songs, with a sprinkling of laconic humour.
Few bodies of musical work rouse, seduce and are of such great solace as that of the great singer songwriter Leonard Cohen. Soulful lyrics are laced with raw emotion and sheer seductiveness. D’Arrietta’s arrangements add an uplifting, upbeat feel.
For two decades, Stewart D'Arrietta and his collaborators have brought their own musical personality to the works of great songwriters, including Tom Waits, John Lennon and Randy Newman, and have received praise for shows in Australia and overseas.
'My Leonard Cohen' was the toast of the Edinburgh Fringe and Adelaide Fringe Festivals 2016 and 2017, with sold out shows and rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
Expect Cohen’s best, including the heartrending Suzanne, the iconic Tower Of Song, the desperately sensual I’m Your Man, and the mournful, but mighty Hallelujah - all delivered as you've never heard them before.
