Kathleen Edwards – Voyageur

January 19, 2012

I was originally turned on to Kathleen Edwards as a alt-country princess.  I was really intrigued to hear this album would be produced by Justin Vernon (Bon Iver).  I had read they were a couple.  I was a little worried Justin would get too atmospheric, but he brought just the right touch.

Kathleen has wonderfully angelic voice.  It reminds me a lot of Susanne Vega.  I am just a couple of listens in, but each listen brings out more nuances.  Justin’s production is so subtle you don’t notice it, but on each additional listen you hear the Bon Iver.

If you like Bon Iver and folky chick singers you will love this album.  If you crave melancholia and reflection you have found the right place.  See the nice story over on NPR.  To sample the album on NPR click here.
