Grammy Award-winning American folk rock singer-songwriter and musician Marc Cohn’s career in the music industry began in the 1990s when he was signed to Atlantic Records after working as a backing pianist on Tracey Chapman’s second album. Cohn’s hugely successful eponymous debut album was released in 1991, launching the single “Walking In Memphis”, which was nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Vocal at the 34th Annual Grammy Awards. The album was certified Platinum in 1996, and led to Cohn winning a Grammy Award for Best Newcomer in 1992. To date, Cohn has released four studio albums, two compilation albums and a live album.
