Re: Artists similar to Leonard Cohen

I posted quite a long post on the first page on this thread in 2004, and have just seen it for the first time in about 13 years! I've just noticed that about six years ago (in 2011), on page 4 of this thread, someone called "abrahammaslow" has repeated my earlier post word for word under their own pseudonym!

A good thread to re-surface, John.

Here is an artist I have already enthused about elsewhere. He is certainly dissimilar to LC in style and content, but I feel similar in message: Ludovico Einaudi. Maybe it's just because I listen to LC and LE interchangeably.

See this track, Waterways, from the In A Time Lapse album. He begins with a heart beat to set the bass line, or 'borderline', and carries forward into a mini-orchestral reprise:

Joustene Lorenz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEQBT1dP5g0 I've seen all these suggestions re artists who are similar to Leonard Cohen. Obviously, Leonard is a unique artists, so all suggestions are only approximates. Nearly all suggestions are older musicians (eg Dylan, Joni, etc). Some middle aged (Nick Cave( Here's a younger artist who writes some songs that have that same haunting Cohenesque style. Her name is Joustene Lorenz. Don't know much about her but she's an exceptional songwriter and has Narive American heritage. That's all but check this out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEQBT1dP5g0
