The choir has also been featured on National Public Radio's West Coast Live on KFOG, KPFA, and WFMU, on the PBS television station KQED-TV. The group made its East Coast debut in the spring of 2008 at the the Highline Ballroom, Bowery Poetry Club, and other venues.
Transforming Cohen's simple melodies into complex four- and five-part harmonies, Conspiracy of Beards achieves a sound that is both robust and tender, creating unique arrangements tinged with influences of indie rock, jazz, gospel, barbershop, classical, and doo-wop. Using the genius of Cohen's words, the Beards inspire audiences to ponder romance, politics, sex, longing, and spirituality, all amid laughter and cheers.
"The troupe breaks Cohen's haunting warbles into multi-part harmonies, exploring the dark edges with complex, expertly rendered vocal interpretations." Andrew Phillips, Flavorpill (NYC)
