A Thousand Kisses Deep 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. She 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.


"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 


"SHE'S GOT ONE OF THOSE VOICES THAT CAN MOVE FROM PURE, PASTORAL-EDGED FOLK WHIMSY TO BIG ANGRY BLUES MAMA IN A SINGLE PHRASE; FROM WORLD-WEARY INTERPRETER OF SHOW TUNES TO HOWLING ROCK DIVA WITHIN A SINGLE NOTE.”  TIME OUT
