Hear Julie Christensen Talk About Her Leonard Cohen Audition & The 1988 Austin City Limits Show

julie Diego

Julie Christensen tells how Roscoe Beck recommended her as a backup singer for the 1988 Leonard Cohen tour, describes discussing the tour with Cohen over a grilled cheese, and explains the role of exhaustion in performing the 1988 Austin City Limits Show. The show ends with a 1993 recording of Leonard Cohen & Julie Christensen performing “Joan of Arc.” The segment dealing with Leonard Cohen begins at 17:35 but the entire interview is fascinating. The podcast is found at Short Report: Oct 13, 2015. (Note: The Julie Christensen interview is one of many on that page. The most efficient way to find the correct recording is to go to that page and search for “October 13, 2015”)
