Hailed as one of the country’s top singer-songwriters, Marc Cohn, who’s perhaps best known for his hit “Walking in Memphis,” stops in for a set at The Rose in Pasadena Sunday night.
Cohn blends the precision work of a master tunesmith with the heart of a great soul artist, with influences that stem from American R&B, soul and gospel, all tied together with a keen sense of storytelling.
The multi-instrumentalist has received rave reviews from all over the musical map — from Time magazine to his musical peers. Luminaries including Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Patty Griffin have all made guest appearances on his early records.
“Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artists I know,” Raitt once declared. “He’s an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for.”
His busy schedule testifies to his staying power. Cohn’s Sunday night appearance comes in the midst of an international tour.
