Marc Cohn

Back in 1991, solo artist Marc Cohn made a rather large dent on the collective consciousness of music listeners with his self-titled debut album. The release not only brought piano pop back to radio listeners but contained a hit gospel gem, “Walking in Memphis,” which helped catapult the album to the platinum level and helped earn Cohn a Grammy for Best New Artist of 1991. Cohn followed up that feat with two more releases, in 1993 and 1998, which feature backing vocals from Rosanne Cash, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Bonnie Raitt, among others. Cohn will play a concert at the Egg (Empire State Plaza, Albany) tomorrow (Friday, Oct. 17); opening the show will be guitarist Shane Fontayne, who has played alongside, either live or on recording, Steve Forbert, the Mamas and the Papas, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart, Shania Twain and Cohn. Tickets for the 8 PM show are $25 and can be purchased through the Egg Box Office, 473-1845.
