Barbara Cohen & Friends

Singer/songwriter, composer and MN native Barbara Cohen has started working on a new album after an 8 year performing hiatus while scoring feature films in her adopted city of LA. Tonight she will be playing songs from her upcoming project, along with old favorites from her critically acclaimed solo album California, which the Minneapolis City Pages called “a gorgeous dark-streaked evocation of bitter truths, yearning and redemption.” She’ll be joined by friends Wendy Lewis on vocals and Jeremy Ylivisaker on guitar.

Barbara’s career as a recording artist includes co-founding the Virgin Records’ band, Brother Sun, Sister Moon, collaborating with England’s rave luminaries, Orbital, singing lead vocals for the French experimental duo, Air, as well as releasing several critically acclaimed albums both as a solo artist and with her eclectic folk band Little Lizard, as well as the rowdy, alt-country, ensemble Farm Accident (Red House Records).

Cohen’s ability to effectively blend disparate musical elements extends to her scores for film and television. These range from the ambient guitar and charango music for the 2009 Emmy- nominated PBS documentary, The Judge and the General to the dream-like, cabaret-influenced score for the HBO Cuban feature, Habana Eva; from the evocative, Middle Eastern influenced arrangements for the 2013 documentaries The Lost Dreams PBS/POV and Al Jazeera America’s Words of Witness.
