At 19 years old, Cohen Sieg has been writing and performing for almost half his life. Hailing from Sieg’s Corner, MB, he has become a local favourite while making his way to festivals, events, and open mics across the country. Cohen is a folk/pop singer-songwriter who is known for playing guitar, but is also a talented multi-instrumentalist playing a full band of instruments including bass, keyboard, saxophone, and percussion, to name a few. Cohen is a solo-musician but with the help of his looper, his captivating performances encompass the sounds and impact of a full band. Cohen has been receiving accolades since his humble beginnings in rural Manitoba, but has quickly expanded his reach, including Los Angeles, CA, where he holds a certificate from the Musicians Institute, College of Contemporary Music, Perth, WA, where he toured in the fall of 2018 and Vancouver BC, where he co-wrote “The Thought of You” at Nimbus School of Recording & Media which featured Dave Genn, the bassist of the 54-40. Following “The Thought of You” and his cover of The 1975’s “She Lays Down”, was his breakout single “Glad You’re My Girl”, which was recorded at Paintbox Recording in early 2020. The single has since gone on to be played on CBC radio and streamed globally many times since its release.
He has a passion for music that is undeniable, and you can hear it in the songs he plays such as The 1975’s “Somebody Else”, Phil Colins “In the Air Tonight,” and Charlie Puth’s “Attention.”
