Leonard Cohen’s son, Adam, brings his familial talent to Australia for the first time in March 2012.

Cohen inherited the musical gene and was making a racket way back as a baby, then teaching himself to play piano, guitar and drums before he was in his teens.

Cohen released his first solo album in 1998 and performed with the group Low Millions.

This year he delivered his third solo album Like A Man, which pays homage to his father Leonard, while also exploring his feelings about his own fatherhood.

He said about the album, “I was never terribly preoccupied with living up to my family name, and not until I was sitting at the dinner table with my father to my left and my two-year-old son to my right, did I realise I really wanted to, and was ready to”.

It’s easy to spot the influence in his gentle, intimate, poetic folk and he’ll be playing equally personable venues around Australia for the first time.

He’ll be joined by up-and-coming singer-songwriter Gossling for all the dates.

Frontier members ticket pre-sales kick off at 3pm next Tuesday 6 December and general tickets go on sale from 9am next Friday 9 December (except the Adelaide show, which is on sale the next day).
