Low Millions

Adam Cohen has been fortunate enough to have music in his blood: his father is world renown singer/song writer Leonard Cohen. Adam Cohen has clearly learned a thing or two from dad. This talented artist first began as a solo act, and now fronts the band Low Millions, featuring Jorgen Carlsson (bass), Michael Chaves (guitar) and Eric Eldenius (drums) and Cohen additionally on keyboard and guitar. Low Millions move away from the quirky vague poetic styles heard by many contemporary rock musicians, and go back to traditional, clean cut story telling. They play bluesy rock songs about love and break-ups, which may in fact be typical, but their sound certainly isn't.
