Two Revealing 2014 Sharon Robinson Interviews About “On Tour With Leonard Cohen” And More

Sharon Robinson & Leonard Cohen Caesar's Palace 2010

One of the benefits of the publication of “On Tour With Leonard Cohen” by Sharon Robinson has been the interviews with the author. The most recent entries are Leonard Cohen, Up Close: Collaborator Sharon Robinson on Her New Photos of the Enigmatic Musician by Amy Ephron (Vogue: Dec 9, 2014)  and Sharon Robinson on Leonard Cohen: He Spends a Lot of Time Trying to Uncover Truths by Chris Gardner (Hollywood Reporter: Dec 9, 2014). Excerpts from each article follow.

Sharon Robinson quotation excerpted from Hollywood Reporter:

Well, obviously if you know Leonard’s work you know that he’s an extremely thoughtful person and that he spends a lot of time trying to uncover the truths of our existence and the path of the human heart and so on. The privileged access that I had to him enabled me to capture moments that might not otherwise have been captured. … In some ways it’s an opportunity to let people know that everything that Leonard seems to be, he really is. He is a gracious and wonderful and generous and kind person and he’s funny and fun loving, which sort of goes against the preconceived notions to some degree, but he’s just a wonderful person to have worked with so closely for all those years.

An Intimate Evening with Sharon Robinson: Savoy Theater, Helsinki

Leonard Cohenin työpari Sharon Robinson konsertoimaan Helsinkiin elokuussa!

Arvostettu yhdysvaltalainen laulaja ja musiikkivaikuttaja Sharon Robinson saapuu konsertoimaan Helsinkiin elokuussa. Robinsonin oli määrä esiintyä Helsingissä jo viime vuonna, mutta hänen puolisonsa menehtyminen keskeytti kiertueen juuri ennen Savoy-teatterin konserttia. Nyt Robinsonille on saatu sovittua uusi konserttipäivä sunnuntaiksi 14. elokuuta 2016.

Sharon Robinson tunnetaan erityisesti yli 30 vuotta kestäneestä yhteistyöstään taiteilija Leonard Cohenin kanssa. Hänet onkin nähty Suomessa aiemmin Cohenin taustalaulajana. Robinson on myös tuottanut Cohenin Ten New Songs -albumin (2001).

Vuonna 1985 Sharon Robinson vastaanotti arvostetun Grammy-palkinnon New Attitude -kappaleestaan, joka tuli tunnetuksi Patti LaBellen tulkitsemana Beverly Hills Cop -elokuvassa.

Sharon Robinsonin soolouran katsotaan alkaneen virallisesti vuonna 2008 hänen julkaistua Everybody Knows -debyyttialbuminsa. Levytys sai osakseen varauksetonta kiitosta niin kriitikoilta kuin suurelta yleisöltä. Robinsonin tuorein albumi, Caffeine, ilmestyi viime vuonna. Se sisältä soulia, rhythm and bluesia, folkia ja jazzia tulkittuna kuten vain Sharon Robinson osaa.

Sharon Robinson Savoy-teatterissa Helsingissä sunnuntaina 14. elokuuta 2016 klo 19.00, ovet klo 18.00

Liput permannolle alk. 52,50e, parvekkeelle alk. 47,50e.
