A Thousand Kisses Deep: The Songs of Leonard Cohen is the successful creative production of KVMR News Director and Sierra foothills promoter/musician Paul Emery. In 2011, the group assembled for three sold-out evenings at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley and went on to perform at the Nevada Theatre, the 24th Street Theatre in Sacramento, the Crest and at last summer\’s prestigious, Music In The Mountains. The eight-piece band and six singers bring the instrumentation of Cohen’s most recent touring band with woodwinds, strings, guitars and keyboards and back-up singers.
“The lyrical depth and beauty of Leonard Cohen’s music is an endless well of inspiration to those who love his music. The songs never grow old and each performance reveals a new layer of inspiration to the audience and players alike.” – Paul Emery
