What's it like to grow up as the son of a Canadian - and international - musical legend? And if you decide to go into the music biz, how do you define yourself as an your own man while paying tribute to the genius of your father? Well, Adam Cohen, son of Leonard, makes it look easy. He started out by proving his skill as a songwriter for other artists, but quickly moved into his own material, releasing his self-titled debut to critical acclaim in 1998. And over the years, Adam's done plenty to reinforce both his talent as a singer and songwriter and his Canadianness: his second record, 'Melancolista', is made up entirely of French songs. And his latest, 'Like A Man', pays tribute to his father and reinforces Adam's recognition that he is, in his own words, "in the family business".
