Cohen Sieg in Concert
July 24 – The Listening Room – Lac du Bonnet
The Listening Room is very excited to have Cohen Sieg play at our venue on July 24th!
Cohen Sieg, a 17-year-old singer, songwriter and musician from Sieg’s Corner, Manitoba. He has been writing and performing for the past 7 years, playing at festivals, small events and open mics all across Canada. His musical style is pop/folk, but he’s also known to play a variety of songs from genres such as country, rock and a bit of blues. He performs as a solo musician, but with the help of his looper, he sounds like he has a full band backing him up.
He has a passion for music that is undeniable, and you can hear it in his songs, such as his independently released single “Goodbye”, and his covers such as Treat You Better, In the Air Tonight and Attention. With his much-anticipated album in the works, it seems as though nothing is going to slow him down!
