We're looking into the music and life of one of Canada's most well known artists for today's music feature.

His musical career spanned nearly 50 years...

Love and hate, sex and spirituality, war and peace, ecstasy and depression... they're just some of the themes song-poet Leonard Cohen canvassed in his impressive body of work.

Artist and singer Caitlin Smith sings Cohen's songs regularly, and after a cracking music feature on Joni Mitchell last year, Caitlin and her keyboard are back with us for a session on Leonard Cohen!
