A Thousand Kisses Deep: The Songs of Leonard Cohen is the successful creative production of KVMR News Director and foothills promoter/musician Paul Emery. In 2011, the group assembled for three sold-out evenings at the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley and went on to perform at the Nevada Theatre and 24th Street Theatre in Sacramento. They have since performed the show a total of 12 times, selling out nine of those shows. The eight-piece band and six singers bring the instrumentation of Cohen’s most recent touring band with woodwinds, strings, guitars and keyboards and back-up singers.
“Coupled with the richness of Leonard Cohen’s writing, your arrangements, and the seasoned musicianship each of you bring, the show left me deeply touched… …one of the most rewarding evenings of entertainment I can remember, not just here, but anywhere.” – Jordan Fisher Smith
“We went to the Leonard Cohen A Thousand Kisses Deep show last night at the Crest. It was fabulous!!! I’ve been a Cohen fan for years and his music was beautifully interpreted by the wonderful group of artists. One of the best shows I’ve been to in years. Thanks to Paul Emery and his incredibly talented groups of musicians. A truly great night.” – Pamela Vann
