Eddie Cohn’s song “Who or What I Was Before” does not fail to be an outstanding and unforgettable piece. As soon as the very first note is uttered, a soulful voice of Cohn dominates, filled with deep emotion that touches straight to the heart. The words are magnificently told, telling a story not only for introspection but made universally relatable as well. However, what really makes this song unique is its musical instrumentation.
The combination of the quiet guitar strings with the soft piano melody produces a landscape that is both engaging and inspiring. Eddie’s perfect balance of vulnerability and strength in the way he performs his songs allows for a rare and refreshing sense of sincerity in his singing. This song is more than a musical journey; it’s an internal odyssey that examines self-transformation and change.
