Kathleen Edwards: Voyageur

Map Unavailable


Incomparable Ottawa-based songstress Kathleen Edwards will release her fourth album Voyageur icon on January 17, 2012. As Kathleen’s bio states, “Voyageur is less of a departure than it is a journey, and like any transforming trip, it demands that we let go of any preconceptions about the destination. These songs are the perfect travel companions to their own haunted landscape.” The album, which features many renowned players from around the country, was co-produced with her musical partner Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver), and recorded between August 2010 and May 2011 in Fall Creek, Wisconsin and Toronto, Canada.

Here’s the video for her new track “Change the Sheets”
