Kathleen Edwards' Voyageur is the acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter's fourth album and her first since Asking for Flowers (2008). Produced by Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver) and Edwards, 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.
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.
Aided by the musical support of fellow travelers Justin Vernon and Norah Jones, Voyageur features standout tracks such as 'Change the Sheets,' 'Mint,' and 'A Soft Place To Land.'
