Info in Brief: Canadian singer/songwriter, Alison Crowe is a big name in the Creative Commons circles.  She releases all her original tracks under a Creative Commons license.  She currently has at least 8 albums of her own work, plus numerous covers apart from this Cohen classic.  A bit of trivia: her version of Halelujah was originally supposed to be played during a scene in the film The Watchmen!  Unfortunately, according to director Zack Snyder, her version was “too romantic” and “sexy” for a scene that was supposed to “come across as ironic”.  See her laundry list of covers here:
