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 warms hearts with empathetic thoughts – Brandi Carlile, dressed festively with a Santa hat, began her mid-week concert set with Joni Mitchell's "River" and closed with the carol "O Holy Night." In between, she sang about an equal measure of old and new songs. And on this first night of a short acoustic tour, Carlile was both in fine spirits and voice.... »»»
Concert Review: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures – After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set. As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»

Boom CD review - Boom
Walker Hayes has a lot of Sam Hunt in his music, in that he mixes a lot of hip-hop in with his country. Traditionalists will have trouble with his unorthodox approach. Kids, though, raised on just as much Drake as Paisley, will likely eat it up. »»»

There is no bigger artist in country music today, perhaps even in American music, than Chris Stapleton. His appeal reaches beyond just the commercial country fans for his gritty bluesy approach. 2015's "Traveller" set a high bar, which was met by this year's release of "From A Room: Volume 1," which won Album of the Year in the 51st CMA Awards.  »»»
Down Home Sessions EP CD review - Down Home Sessions EP

Upon first glance at the track list of Cole Swindell's fourth installment of the "Down Home Sessions" series, one may get the impression that it is a covers EP. It features several chart toppers from other artists, including Luke Bryan's "Roller Coaster" and Thomas Rhett's "Get Me Some Of That." »»»
