Marc Cohn (born July 5, 1959 in Cleveland, Ohio) is a sophisticated singer-songwriter, famous for his song "Walking in Memphis" from his self titled debut.
The album is masterfully produced and features brilliantly crafted musical arrangements that perfectly accentuate Marc's soulful, rich baritone timbre and graceful, contemplative piano performances - all tastefully brought to full and exceptional sonic fruition via the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab proprietary G.A.I.N. (Greater Ambient Information Network) 2 mastering process. Songwriting styles vary from the Memphis/Elvis/Graceland mythic imagery of the hit single to the seemingly Springsteen inspired writing of "Silver Thunderbird".
"Though the album never had great sound, MoFi has done a workmanlike job adding sonic improvements - particularly the striking piano dynamics, more tuneful and resonant bass extension, and highly focused central image." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, October 2008
