Since its release earlier this year, Jon Cohen Experimental's new EP Passion Pilgrim has deservedly been attracting attention. As a guitarist, Cohen has played with The Dears, Social Register, JF Robitaille, and more. As a singer/songwriter, he creates ethereal pop that has elicited comparisons to Owen Pallett and Rich Aucoin. It is worth noting that, in true one-man band fashion, he came up with all the sounds on the EP. His acclaimed 2010 sophomore record Behold featured a full band and such name guests as Angela Desveaux , Evan Cranley (Stars), Liam O’Neil (Stills) Rishi Dhir (Elephant Stone), and Murray Lightburn (The Dears).
He'll take Pilgrim on the road in the months ahead, including an April 29th gig at the Lawnya Vawyna Music Fest in St. Johns and a May CMW show in Toronto. Cohen has previously toured in both Europe and the U.S.
