Watch Half Moon Run reflect on the human poetry of Leonard Cohen's 'Suzanne' with their own cover
'I didn't have to pretend I liked it or try to get into some context of postmodernism or some shit like that'
Like most Canadian musicians, singer/songwriter Devon Portielje from Half Moon Run has learned a lot from listening to Leonard Cohen.
Portielje reflects on the time Cohen's words made him weep — and taught him that it's the simple language that can cut clearly through to the human heart.
Watch Devon and bandmate Conner Molander record the Montreal-inspired 1967 classic "Suzanne" for the Cohen-inspired exhibit, A Crack In Everything.
Catch A Crack in Everything at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal until April 9, 2018.
