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.”
