Video: Laura Gibson Sings Leonard Cohen

This week, we're featuring video performances of various artists singing the songs of Leonard Cohen. The video was recorded live at this year's South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas.

Laura Gibson's recent album, Beasts of Seasons, showcases the singer's stark narrative voice and flair for poetic songwriting. It's no wonder that she's attracted to the music of Leonard Cohen. At Waterloo Records, she performed a song from Cohen's 1988 album I'm Your Man. The track, "Take This Waltz," features accordion, a saw, some percussion and Gibson's gorgeous voice.
