about

This of course is a cover of a Leonard Cohen song. It started out as a favor for my Dad's club's Christmas party and it grew to the point that I'm proud of the work I did on it and wanted to share it with everybody. So I secured the licensing (we're doing everything nice and legal here!) and here it is!

It's no secret that I adore Leonard Cohen. And no secret that I adore this song. But I've always been reluctant to cover it because it's one of my favorites and because absolutely EVERYONE has covered it to death. I've more than once called for a moratorium on cover versions of this song, just so I can keep enjoying Leonard's version(s). But...like I said, I kind of fell in love with playing it. And I think I brought enough of my own spin to the song to justify it. The only reason to do a cover is if you can do it better or if you can do it different. There is quite possibly no one better than Leonard Cohen. But this version is at least different.

I hope you enjoy it. Please take it for free.
