A Thousand Kisses Deep with Christine Tobin  vocals & Phil Robson guitar is a beautiful re-working of eleven Leonard Cohen songs alongside some choice  originals. In her own compositions, Christine Tobin specializes in  idiosyncratic, highly musical poetic vignettes with a strong sense of story, so it's no surprise that she weaves magic with the profound, sensual songs of Cohen, and in her musical settings of WB Yeats and  contemporary Irish poet Paul  Muldoon.  S|he has chosen the  Cohen songs from his early 1960s albums  through to  his 2001 release ‘Ten New Songs’. The live show of ‘A  Thousand Kisses  Deep’ won a prestigious Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh Fringe and the album received rave reviews. (see below). More info on Christine here: www.christinetobin.org  Phil Robson www.philrobsonmusic.com is a renowned UK born jazz guitarist. He has worked with a diverse array of artists including Maceo Parker, Kurt Elling, Barbra Streisand, & Jean Toussaint to name just a few.

"Christine Tobin is inspiring on her own material. But she is in a class of her own singing Leonard Cohen. Her new version of    “Everybody Knows” is stunning… Gorgeous, affecting and deeply human.”

The Guardian
