Stream the new Kathleen Edwards album Voyageur

Kathleen Edwards faces one of the toughest possible paths to popular success: She’s that singer-songwriter who’s so good, you can’t help but wish she stood out more. Like Tift Merritt and countless others who’ve preceded and surrounded her, Edwards resides in a shadowy netherworld between genres, where folk and pop and country morph into a genre-less place that’s ironically both accessible and hard to sell in a marketplace that requires its artists to fit into a clear niche.
