A Thousand Kisses Deep (duo) with  Christine Tobin  vocals & Phil Robson guitar is a beautiful re-working of eleven  Leonard Cohen songs alongside some choice  originals. In her own  writing, 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 jazz guitarist. He has worked with a diverse array of   artists including Maceo Parker, Kurt Elling, Barbra Streisand &  Jean  Toussaint.

"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.”
