CD reviews for Kathleen Edwards

Voyageur CD review - Voyageur
Kathleen Edwards made a few changes since her last album "Asking For Flowers" came out. For one, she is in a new working and personal relationship with Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, and for two, she's said this new album is her branching out from the "four-chord" singer-songwriter realm her first three records deliciously reeked of. Thankfully, her new album might suffer from just one miscue, but one which could scare off some fans. The lead single, Change The »»»
Asking For Flowers CD review - Asking For Flowers
Canadian singer/songwriter Kathleen Edwards captivated nearly everyone with her 2003 folk/country/rock debut "Failer," a staple of year-end Top 10 lists. Somehow, 2005's "Back to Me" didn't quite live up to the critical expectations of its predecessor (note that last statement's dripping sarcasm as regards Edwards' most excellent sophomore outing; there might have been a half dozen better songs than "In State" and "Summerlong" that year). »»»
Back to Me CD review - Back to Me
Kathleen Edwards has more than a little to live up to in the wake of her acclaimed 2003 debut, "Failer." The Canadian native's press kit is stuffed to bursting with "Failer's" accolades, which earned her major TV appearances with David Letterman and Jay Leno and touring gigs with everyone from the Rolling Stones to AC/DC to Bob Dylan. And just as she rose to those occasions and made it all seem as natural as breathing, Edwards pushes aside any notion of a sophomore slump with the rootsy splendor of "Back to Me. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile brings thoughtfulness – Brandi Carlile returned to the GRAMMY Museum for the third time, and it's easy to see why she's always invited back. The evening began with GRAMMY Executive Scott Goldman interviewing Carlile on a pair of stuffed chairs, which was followed directly by a brief set of live songs. The interview portion was informative, while Carlile's... »»»

Circus of Life CD review - Circus of Life
"Circus of Life," the title of Kinky Friedman's album, is a little misleading. It conjures up images of carnival barkers and circus freaks and songs as odd as its cigar-manufacturing, politically-astute novelist author/songwriter. The album is far more sensitive than that title suggests, though. In fact, it's a welcome respite from modern day circus-like life. »»»
Outlaws 'Til The End: Vol. 1 CD review - Outlaws 'Til The End: Vol. 1
Many mainstream country artists will point to their Southern roots as proof of their country music credentials. These roots seemingly give them liberty to stray just as far from typical country music instrumentation as they like. However, how does this rule apply to Santa Barbara, Cal.'s DevilDriver, which applies its hard-rocking groove metal chops to a set of outlaw country music? »»»
