    A Thousand Kisses Deep: The Songs of Leonard Cohen is the successful creative production of KVMR News Director and foothills promoter/musician, Paul Emery. In 2011, fourteen musicians and one poet assembled for three stellar sold out evenings at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley and then reprised the event for two similar nights at the Nevada Theatre in Nevada City. The eight-piece band and six singers, all notables from the Grass Valley/Nevada City area, bring the instrumentation of Cohen's most recent touring band with woodwinds, strings, guitars and keyboards and back-up singers. A live recording has resulted and gets regular airings on their excellent community radio KVMR.

    One of the most fascinating and enigmatic singer/songwriters of the late '60s, Leonard Cohen has retained an audience across four decades of music-making interrupted by various digressions into personal and creative exploration, all of which have only added to the mystique surrounding him. Emerging in the 1960s as a public literary figure and then a performer, Cohen remains one of the most compelling musical figures of his era, and one of the very few of that era who commands as much respect and attention in the 21st century as he did in 20th. As much as any survivor of that decade, Cohen has held onto his original audience and has seen it grow across generations, in keeping with a body of music that is truly timeless and ageless.
