Ottawa native Kathleen Edwards spent 2010/2011 cooped up recording a new record with co-producer Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver). The fruits of their labor can be heard on the full-length album, Voyageur, available at Amazon here: http://amzn.to/tLRg4H or at iTunes here: http://bit.ly/AdBjWT
Voyageur evokes a spectrum of overwhelming feelings within the atmosphere of a lucid dream. Edwards' characters speak to the grief, loneliness, shock, and confusion that come with endings as well as the hope and irrepressible joy that accompany new beginnings, but the stories are told with a seductively quiet strength. The album celebrates the many pleasures of survival and reinvention, suggesting that an acceptance of life's changeability is what will allow us to face the hardest of hard times — as well as the exhilarating longing and dislocation of the unknown — head on, with grace.
