      Marc Cohn - SOLD OUT!


      Doors Open:1 Hour Before Show
      DescriptionAfter winning a GRAMMY for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. He’s a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales.

      Cohn followed up his platinum-selling debut with two more releases in the 1990s, at which point TIME magazine called him "one of the honest, emotional voices we need inthis decade" and Bonnie Raitt declared, "Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artists I know. I love his songs, he's an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for."

      Raitt, James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Patty Griffin all made guest appearances on Cohn’s early records for Atlanta, as his reputation as an artist and performer continued to grow. In 1998, Cohn took a decade-long sabbatical from recording, ending in 2007 with Join the Parade. Inspired by the horrific events following Hurricane Katrina and his own near fatal shooting just weeks before, Parade is his most moving and critically acclaimed record to date.

      About his album Listening Booth: 1970, a collection of reimagined classics from that seminal year in music, Rolling Stone said, “Cohn has one of rock’s most soulful croons -a rich immediately recognizable tenor that makes these songs his own.” In late 2014, Cohn released, “The Coldest Corner in the World,” the title song to the documentary Tree Man and his first original song released in more than seven years.

      On March 25, 2016, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his platinum-selling debutalbum, Marc proudly released Careful What you Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities and thebonus album, Evolution of a Record, featuring never-before-heard songs and demosdating back to years before his debut album and the Grammy Award that followed.

      Moving forward, he continues to do what he does best: infuse American music with both a fresh perspective and a reverence for its deep roots.


      OPENER: Chelsea Williams

      “Resolute loneliness has never sounded this desirable.” hails Rolling Stone. Critically acclaimed independent singer/songwriter Chelsea Williams released her debut LP Boomerang last year and has been touring ever since. “For fans of dreamy, glinting tunes anchored by introspective, heart-worn lyrics” (Rolling Stone) she ties together Americana, indie-folk, and lush pop to create a transcendent listening experience that will place the young singer-songwriter front and center among the preeminent performers of the day.

      Whether Williams is the music industry’s best- or worst-kept-secret is open to debate. Sure, she’s performed on The Today Show and has opened for big names such as the Avett Brothers and Dwight Yoakam, and she’s even had a high-profile guest spot on a Maroon 5 video, dueting with Adam Levine on the group’s No. 1 smash “Daylight (Playing For Change).” But the truly incredible part of the golden-voiced chanteuse’s story has taken place at Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade, where she’s performed acoustically for the past few years. During these appearances, Williams has managed to move an unprecedented 100,000 copies of her first three indie records.
