Bird on a Wire

DAVIDCOHEN thumbnail
DAVIDCOHEN a stunning album by an exceptional, outstanding artist. performing leonard cohen's songs is so difficult and people usually fail spectacularly. in contrast, janieleigh shines, she makes these songs her own which is nothing short of awe-inspiring and takes my breath away - every single time! her "avalanche" is addictive and because of her performance i came to appreciate "bird on a wire" as a song (while i always loved the lyrics) which has previously never really been one of my favorites.

Robert Baird I've had this on loop long enough to say with certainty that it is a fantastic album with real depth and re-listenability (and it's an album, and not a collection of tracks). It's stripped back, powerful and really brings something I hadn't heard before to these songs (always in a good way). Certainly an album I really appreciate existing. It's hard to pick a favourite, but Bandcamp made me do it. Favorite track: Hallelujah.

Hassles I bought this for myself and played it for a close friend who has no capacity to play digital music and happens to be a huge Dylan fan so I purchased this a second time (the physical album) as a gift for him. Personally I love the close to rebirthing of these classic songs which amply demonstrates the musical prowess & creativity of the artist.
