Sadly, Cohen has been forced to make the decision to cancel his Australian show dates due to commitments in Canada and would like to thank his Australian fans who have for so long supported him.Frontier Touring sincerely apologises to all those affected by this cancellation. Existing ticketholders are entitled to a refund.Ticketmaster will automatically process refunds- if you have any questions, please call 136 100.Reserved seating- Under 18's may attend if accompanied by a parent or responsible guardian.Frontier Touring is delighted to confirm that Canadian singer-songwriter Adam Cohen will head to Australia for an intimate and captivating 10-date series of shows across the country in March 2015.The son of acclaimed musician and noted inspiration Leonard, three years ago Cohen almost quit the music business altogether. Talked into giving it one last go, he released what would be his most acclaimed album to date - the powerful and elegant Like A Man (through Cooking Vinyl Australia), an intimate album of romantic poetic folk-pop that has echoes of his father Leonards finest work.Cohen recently released his fifth studio album We Go Home (through Cooking Vinyl Australia, watch the clip for single 'We Go Home). We Go Home was made in the Greek island of Hydra and in Montreal, both of which he had spent much of his childhood in; "making an album in the comfort of home on makeshift equipment with this band of touring musicians who had become my family immediately offered a beacon of hope that no studio, or session players or priceless gear ever could". We Go Home continues the themes of album Like A Man but takes a departure in tone - making the most of the three-piece band and three-piece string section from his live performances, the album is richer, fuller and more diverse. The nylon-string guitar is still there, but there are also piano songs - the title track's tenderness and self-effacing humour recall his other great musical influence, Randy Newman. We Go Home continued the high standard set by his previous albums:'The clarity and tenderness in Adam Cohens vocals, especially when partnered with his distinctive nylon stringed guitar, beautifully chronicle the conversations he has had, or wishes to have, with his father and seven-year-old son. His lyrics convey the value Cohen places is his home and family, and have worked to make We Go Home a greatly rooted and real album - Renowned For SoundIn October of this year Cohen made his UK television debut with a stunning rendition of his track 'So Much To Learn on 'Later with Jools Holland (watch here). He toured Australia for the first time in March 2012, performing in dates across the country as well as part of Port Fairy Folk Festival and Adelaide Fringe. Showing audiences that he was just as captivating on-stage as he was on his albums, Cohens Australian shows received equal high praise:'Adam has inherited his fathers flair for writing amazingly romantic pieces, and for delivering them with unquestionable sincerity - The Au ReviewPromising an enchanting night filled with raw talent, make sure you dont miss Adam Cohen on his forthcoming Australian tour - and with shows in Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Blue Mountains, Newcastle, Brisbane, Pomona and Byron Bay youll have no reason to!

“He’s sexy, he can croon, he sounds all too sincere, but how do we account for all this romantic carnage? That tension between what you hear and what you suspect gives ex-Girlfriends its tension”
