Rufus Wainwright's thoughtful chamber pop has been winning us over for years, and it sure shines brightly on his latest album, Out Of The Game, which was produced by Mark Ronson. Rufus recently visited FUV to share some of the songs, and he also spoke about all the curves in the road that have been influencing his work and life in recent years.
This week the Sunday Breakfast celebrates Easter and Passover and the release of Adam Cohen's new CD. Adam will be my guest in Studio A, performing songs and relating what it's like to be the son of an icon, Leonard Cohen. Apparently he had something of an epiphany at the dinner table, with his son on one side and his father on the other, as he realized he wanted to make an album worthy of his father's legacy. The result was Like a Man, an album of intimate, authentic songs from start to finish.
