Leonard Cohen was born into a middle-class Jewish family in Westmount, Quebec , on September 21, His father, Nathan Bernard Cohen — ,  who owned a substantial clothing store, died when Cohen was nine years old. The family observed Orthodox Judaism , and belonged to Congregation Shaar Hashomayim , to which Cohen retained connections for the rest of his life. I was told I was a descendant of Aaron , the high priest. Cohen attended Roslyn Elementary School and completed grades seven through nine at Herzliah High School , where his literary mentor Irving Layton taught,  then transferred in to Westmount High School , where he studied music and poetry.
During that time, Cohen taught himself to play the acoustic guitar, and formed a country — folk group that he called the Buckskin Boys. After a young Spanish guitar player taught him "a few chords and some flamenco ", Cohen switched to a classical guitar. She would sing with us when I took my guitar to a restaurant with some friends; my mother would come, and we'd often sing all night.
He would read his poetry at assorted nearby clubs. In that period and that place, Cohen wrote the lyrics to some of his most famous songs. The issue also included poems by Cohen's poet—professors who were also on the editorial board Irving Layton and Louis Dudek. The book contained poems written largely when Cohen was between the ages of 15 and 20, and Cohen dedicated the book to his late father.
Cohen described his graduate school experience as "passion without flesh, love without climax". His father's will provided him with a modest trust income sufficient to allow him to pursue his literary ambitions for the time, and The Spice-Box of Earth was successful in helping to expand the audience for Cohen's poetry, helping him reach out to the poetry scene in Canada, outside the confines of McGill University. The book also helped Cohen gain critical recognition as an important new voice in Canadian poetry.
One of Cohen's biographers, Ira Nadel , stated that "reaction to the finished book was enthusiastic and admiring Cohen continued to write poetry and fiction throughout much of the s and preferred to live in quasi-reclusive circumstances after he bought a house on Hydra , a Greek island in the Saronic Gulf. His novel The Favourite Game was an autobiographical bildungsroman about a young man who discovers his identity through writing. Beautiful Losers received a good deal of attention from the Canadian press and stirred up controversy because of a number of sexually graphic passages.
He is living in Montreal under the name of Cohen. Both Beautiful Losers and Parasites of Heaven received mixed reviews and sold few copies. I want to write songs," Simon recalled Cohen telling him. Subsequently, Cohen published less, with major gaps, concentrating more on recording songs. In he published his first book of poetry in many years, Death of a Lady's Man not to be confused with the album he released the previous year, the similarly titled Death of a Ladies' Man. The book contains 50 prose-poems, influenced by the Hebrew Bible and Zen writings.
Cohen himself referred to the pieces as "prayers". The Book of Longing is dedicated to the poet Irving Layton. Also, during the late s and s, many of Cohen's new poems and lyrics were first published on the fan website The Leonard Cohen Files, including the original version of the poem "A Thousand Kisses Deep" which Cohen later adapted for a song. Cohen's writing process, as he told an interviewer in , was "like a bear stumbling into a beehive or a honey cache: I'm stumbling right into it and getting stuck, and it's delicious and it's horrible and I'm in it and it's not very graceful and it's very awkward and it's very painful and yet there's something inevitable about it.
In Cohen was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award for literature. His books have been translated into multiple languages, including Spanish. In , disappointed with his lack of financial success as a writer, Cohen moved to the United States to pursue a career as a folk music singer—songwriter. During the s, he was a fringe figure in Andy Warhol 's "Factory" crowd. Warhol speculated that Cohen had spent time listening to Nico in clubs and that this had influenced his musical style. Collins recalls that when she first met him, he said he couldn't sing or play the guitar, nor did he think "Suzanne" was even a song:.
And then he played me "Suzanne. I said, "Leonard, you must come with me to this big fundraiser I'm doing" Jimi Hendrix was on it. He'd never sung [in front of a large audience] before then. He got out on stage and started singing. Everybody was going crazy—they loved it. And he stopped about halfway through and walked off the stage. Everybody went nuts. They demanded that he come back. And I demanded; I said, "I'll go out with you. And of course, that was the beginning. She first introduced him to television audiences during one of her shows in ,  where they performed duets of his songs.
In recent years, other singers such as Joan Baez have sung it during their tours. After performing at a few folk festivals, he came to the attention of Columbia Records representative John H. Hammond , who signed Cohen to a record deal. The album became a cult favorite in the US, as well as in the UK, where it spent over a year on the album charts. The film is now considered a masterpiece by some critics who also note that the songs are integral to the film. Scott Tobias wrote in that "The film is unimaginable to me without the Cohen songs, which function as these mournful interstitials that unify the entire movie.
The movie is inextricably connected to Cohen's songs. It's impossible to imagine Altman's masterpiece without them. He then heard the audience clamoring for his reappearance by singing to him in Hebrew, and under the influence of the psychedelic, he returned to finish the show. Then beginning around , Cohen's collaboration with pianist and arranger John Lissauer created a live sound praised by the critics.
The tour included new songs from an album in progress, co-written by Cohen and Lissauer and entitled Songs for Rebecca. None of the recordings from these live tours with Lissauer were ever officially released, and the album was abandoned in In Cohen embarked on a new major European tour with a new band and changes in his sound and arrangements, again, in support of his The Best of Leonard Cohen release in Europe retitled as Greatest Hits.
Laura Branigan was one of his backup singers during the tour. After the European tour of , Cohen again attempted a new change in his style and arrangements; his new record, Death of a Ladies' Man one year later, in , Cohen also released a volume of poetry with the coyly revised title, Death of a Lady's Man , was co-written and produced by Phil Spector.
In Cohen returned with the more traditional Recent Songs ,  which blended his acoustic style with jazz and Oriental and Mediterranean influences. Beginning with this record, Cohen began to co-produce his albums. The band helped Cohen create a new sound by featuring instruments like the oud , the Gypsy violin, and the mandolin.
The album was supported by Cohen's major tour with the new band, and Jennifer Warnes and Sharon Robinson on the backing vocals, in Europe in late , and again in Australia, Israel, and Europe in In , Columbia released an album of live recordings of songs from the tour, entitled Field Commander Cohen: Tour of During the s, Cohen toured twice with Jennifer Warnes as a backup singer and Warnes would become a fixture on Cohen's future albums, receiving full co-vocals credit on Cohen's album Various Positions although the record was released under Cohen's name, the inside credits say "Vocals by Leonard Cohen and Jennifer Warnes".
In she recorded an album of Cohen songs, Famous Blue Raincoat. They also gave a series of highly emotional and politically controversial concerts in Poland, which had been under martial law just two years before, and performed the song " The Partisan ", regarded as the hymn of the Polish Solidarity movement. The following year he released I'm Your Man. In a New York Times review Janet Maslin praised the book and the song, noting that "Cohen spent years struggling with his song "Hallelujah", which eventually became one of the most "oft-performed songs in American musical history.
He first introduced the song during his world tour in In , Cohen released The Future , which urges often in terms of biblical prophecy perseverance, reformation, and hope in the face of grim prospects. Three tracks from the album — " Waiting for the Miracle ", "The Future" and "Anthem" — were featured in the movie Natural Born Killers , which also promoted Cohen's work to a new generation of US listeners.
As with I'm Your Man , the lyrics on The Future were dark, and made references to political and social unrest. The title track is reportedly a response to the Los Angeles riots. Cohen promoted the album with two music videos, for "Closing Time" and "The Future", and supported the release with the major tour through Europe, United States and Canada, with the same band as in his tour, including a second appearance on PBS 's Austin City Limits.
Some of the Scandinavian shows were broadcast live on the radio. The selection of performances, mostly recorded on the Canadian leg of the tour, was released on Cohen Live album. In , Cohen also published his book of selected poems and songs, Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs , on which he had worked since It includes a number of new poems from the late s and early s and major revision of his book Death of a Lady's Man.
In , Cohen retreated to the Mt. Baldy Zen Center near Los Angeles, beginning what became five years of seclusion at the center. He served as personal assistant to Kyozan Joshu Sasaki Roshi. The first was left over from Cohen's unfinished mids album, which was announced to include songs like "In My Secret Life" already recited as song-in-progress in and "A Thousand Kisses Deep",  both later re-worked with Sharon Robinson for the album Ten New Songs. Although there was a public impression that Cohen would not resume recording or publishing, he returned to Los Angeles in May He began to contribute regularly to The Leonard Cohen Files fan website, emailing new poems and drawings from Book of Longing and early versions of new songs, like "A Thousand Kisses Deep" in September  and Anjani Thomas's story sent on May 6, , the day they were recording "Villanelle for our Time"  released on 's Dear Heather album.
After two years of production, Cohen returned to music in with the release of Ten New Songs , featuring a heavy influence from producer and co-composer Sharon Robinson. In October , Cohen released Dear Heather , largely a musical collaboration with jazz chanteuse and romantic partner Anjani Thomas, although Sharon Robinson returned to collaborate on three tracks including a duet. As light as the previous album was dark, Dear Heather reflects Cohen's own change of mood — he said in a number of interviews that his depression had lifted in recent years, which he attributed to Zen Buddhism.
In an interview following his induction into the Canadian Songwriters' Hall of Fame, Cohen explained that the album was intended to be a kind of notebook or scrapbook of themes, and that a more formal record had been planned for release shortly afterwards, but that this was put on ice by his legal battles with his ex-manager.
Blue Alert , an album of songs co-written by Anjani and Cohen, was released in to positive reviews. Sung by Anjani, who according to one reviewer " Before embarking on his — world tour, and without finishing the new album which had been in work since , Cohen contributed a few tracks to other artists' albums — a new version of his own "Tower of Song" was performed by him, Anjani Thomas and U2 in the tribute film Leonard Cohen I'm Your Man  the video and track were included on the film's soundtrack and released as the B-side of U2's single " Window in the Skies ", reaching No 1 in the Canadian Singles Chart.
Sylvie Simmons explains in her biography of Cohen that Kelley Lynch, Cohen's longtime manager, "took care of Leonard's business affairs Cohen discovered that this had begun as early as when Lynch started selling Cohen's music publishing rights despite the fact that Cohen had no financial incentive to do so at the time. Lynch ignored the suit and did not respond to a subpoena issued for her financial records. Cohen's book of poetry and drawings, Book of Longing , was published in May In March a Toronto-based retailer offered signed copies to the first 1, orders placed online: all 1, sold within hours.
The book quickly topped bestseller lists in Canada. On May 13, , Cohen made his first public appearance in 13 years, at an in-store event at a bookstore in Toronto. Approximately 3, people turned up, causing the streets surrounding the bookstore to be closed. Also appearing with him was Anjani, the two promoting her new CD along with his book. That same year, Philip Glass composed music for Book of Longing. Following a series of live performances which included Glass on keyboards, Cohen's recorded spoken text, four additional voices soprano, mezzo-soprano, tenor, and bass-baritone , and other instruments, and as well as screenings of Cohen's artworks and drawings, Glass' label Orange Mountain Music released a double CD of the work, entitled Book of Longing.
The tour , Cohen's first in 15 years, began May 11 in Fredericton , New Brunswick, and was extended until late In , the performances were awarded Ireland's Meteor Music Award as the best international performance of the year. The album contains 25 songs and is more than two and one-half hours long. It was the first official DVD in Cohen's recording career. In January , The Pacific Tour first came to New Zealand, where the audience of 12, responded with five standing ovations. The North American Tour of opened on April 1, and included the performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Friday, April 17, , in front of one of the largest outdoor theatre crowds in the history of the festival.
His performance of Hallelujah was widely regarded as one of the highlights of the festival, thus repeating the major success of the Glastonbury appearance. In July , Cohen started his marathon European tour, his third in two years. On September 18, , on the stage at a concert in Valencia , Spain, Cohen suddenly fainted halfway through performing his song "Bird on the Wire", the fourth in the two-act set list; Cohen was brought down backstage by his band members and then admitted to local hospital, while the concert was suspended.
The show, last in Europe in and rumoured to be the last European concert ever, attracted many international fans, who lighted the green candles honouring Cohen's birthday, leading Cohen to give a special speech of thanks for the fans and the Leonard Cohen Forum. The event was surrounded by public discussion due to a cultural boycott of Israel proposed by a number of musicians. The sixth leg of the — world tour went again to the US, with 15 shows. Cohen's — world tour was prolonged into Originally scheduled to start in March, it began in September due to his back injury.
The collection included a selection from all Cohen's books, based on his books of selected works, Stranger Music , and as well from Book of Longing , with addition of six new song lyrics. Nevertheless, three of those songs, "A Street", recited in , "Feels So Good", performed live in and , and "Born in Chains", performed live in , were not released on Cohen's album Old Ideas , with him being unhappy with the versions of the songs in the last moment; the song "Lullaby", as presented in the book and performed live in , was completely re-recorded for the album, presenting new lyrics on the same melody.
The book is the second major biography of Cohen Ira Nadel's biography Various Positions was the first. Leonard Cohen's 12th studio album, Old Ideas , was released worldwide on January 31, , and it soon became the highest charting album of his entire career, reaching No. The lyrics for the song "Going Home" were published as a poem in The New Yorker magazine in January , prior to the record's release. The album received uniformly positive reviews from Rolling Stone ,  the Chicago Tribune ,  and The Guardian. It grapples once again with topics Mr.
Cohen has pondered throughout his career: love, desire, faith, betrayal, redemption. Some of the diction is biblical; some is drily sardonic. On August 12, , Cohen embarked on a new European tour in support of Old Ideas , adding a violinist to his — tour band, now nicknamed Unified Heart Touring Band, and following the same three-hour set list structure as in — tour, with addition of number of songs from Old Ideas.
A summer tour of Europe happened shortly afterwards. His final concert was performed at the Vector Arena in Auckland. Cohen released his 13th album, Popular Problems , on September 24, Leonard Cohen's son has announced that he is to release a posthumous collection of his father's unfinished songs. Cohen had begun working on a new album with his son Adam Cohen , a musician and singer-songwriter. Adam has revealed that he is now working to complete the album, in the hope it will be released in Writing for AllMusic , critic Bruce Eder assessed Cohen's overall career in popular music by asserting that "[he is] one of the most fascinating and enigmatic Second only to Bob Dylan and perhaps Paul Simon , he commands the attention of critics and younger musicians more firmly than any other musical figure from the s who continued to work in the 21st century.
I like all of Leonard's songs, early or late. I like some of his later songs even better than his early ones. Yet there's a simplicity to his early ones that I like, too. He's very much a descendant of Irving Berlin. Both of them just hear melodies that most of us can only strive for. Leonard particularly uses chord progressions that are classical in shape. He is a much more savvy musician than you'd think.
Themes of political and social justice also recur in Cohen's work, especially in later albums. Take the only tree that's left and stuff it up the hole in your culture", "Destroy another fetus now, we don't like children anyhow". War is an enduring theme of Cohen's work that—in his earlier songs and early life—he approached ambivalently. Challenged in over his serious demeanor in concerts and the military salutes he ended them with, Cohen remarked, "I sing serious songs, and I'm serious onstage because I couldn't do it any other way I don't consider myself a civilian.
I consider myself a soldier, and that's the way soldiers salute. Deeply moved by encounters with Israeli and Arab soldiers, he left the country to write " Lover Lover Lover ". This song has been interpreted as a personal renunciation of armed conflict, and ends with the hope his song will serve a listener as "a shield against the enemy". He would later remark, " 'Lover, Lover, Lover' was born over there; the whole world has its eyes riveted on this tragic and complex conflict. Then again, I am faithful to certain ideas, inevitably. I hope that those of which I am in favour will gain.
Personal process is one thing, it's blood, it's the identification one feels with their roots and their origins. The militarism I practice as a person and a writer is another thing. I don't wish to speak about war. I see a lot of people at the Zen Centre, who have gone through drugs and found a way out that is not just Sunday school.
There are always alternatives, and I might have been able to lay something on him. His music and character also influenced many post-punk artists including Andrew Eldritch who named his band after one of Leonard Cohen's songs, " Sisters of Mercy ",   and their album Some Girls Wander By Mistake for a lyric from Cohen's song Teachers. Eldritch has stated his respect for the man in an interview stating "He was effortlessly brilliant.
A king among men. The most remarkable thing about him was that he was open and engaging. He listened as much as he spoke. We learned from each other. As a fan of the musician and of the man, that was humbling and inspiring. The song " So Long, Marianne " was written to and about her. In , Ihlen died of leukemia three months and 9 days before Cohen. Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine. The letter actually an email , obtained through the Leonard Cohen estate. This old body has given up, just as yours has too, and the eviction notice is on its way any day now.
But you know that. Safe travels old friend. See you down the road. Love and gratitude. In the s, Cohen was in a relationship with artist Suzanne Elrod. She took the cover photograph for Live Songs and is pictured on the cover of the Death of a Ladies' Man. Adam is a singer—songwriter and the lead singer of pop-rock band Low Millions , while Lorca is a photographer.
She shot the music video for Cohen's song "Because Of" , and worked as a photographer and videographer for his —10 world tour. Cohen had three grandchildren: grandson Cassius through his son Adam, and granddaughter Viva and grandson Lyon through Lorca. Cohen was in a relationship with French photographer Dominique Issermann in the s.
They worked together on several occasions: she shot his first two music videos for the songs "Dance Me to the End of Love" and " First We Take Manhattan " and her photographs were used for the covers of his book Stranger Music and his album More Best of Leonard Cohen and for the inside booklet of I'm Your Man , which he also dedicated to her.
