Kathleen Edwards has turned to Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) to co-produce her fourth album, Voyageur. Although the album does showcase Edwards’ well known folk-pop sound, she also introduces a fresh new style. Smooth piano, acoustic guitar, and souring electric pads transform Edwards’ sound to an exciting new level. The title is perfect, as the album takes its listeners on an emotional journey through Edwards’ moving vocals. This impressive album also features Norah Jones and Justin Vernon.
The album will be released on January 17, 2012.
