On Order



Documents the wildly successful Leonard Cohen World Tour through the eyes of his friend and long-time collaborator, Sharon Robinson. In 2004 Cohen's manager stole his life savings, forcing him out of planned retirement into what has now become a legendary six-year sojourn. Sharon Robinson has been associated with Cohen since the Field Commander Cohen tour of 1979-80, first as a singer and subsequently as his co-writer and producer. She has been at his side for 400 shows and captured her experience behind the scenes with complete freedom.

Author Notes

Sharon Robinson has been associated with Leonard Cohen since touring with him as a singer in 1979-80. She co-wrote and produced Cohen's 2001 album, Ten New Songs , (one of Rolling Stone 's "Top 100 Albums of the Decade"), and co-authored the Cohen classics, "Everybody Knows" and "Waiting for the Miracle." A Grammy winning songwriter, Robinson's work has been covered by artists as diverse as Patti LaBelle, Don Henley, Aaron Neville, and Roberta Flack to name a few. Robinson's solo album, Everybody Knows (2008), garnered wide critical acclaim, as have her recent performances on the Cohen World Tour. Sharon once worked as the staff photographer at the world-famous Coconut Grove nightclub in Los Angeles. Sharon is currently working on a new album that will be released in early 2015.
