Pianist Cohen was born in Gedera, Israel and owes his musical roots to the Jewish folk songs and classical music he played during his childhood there.

In 2014, Cohen was named the Grand Prize Winner in the Barry Harris National Jazz Piano Competition in Detroit.

Along with Cohen, the trio includes Dion Kerr on bass and David Chiverton on drums.
