Kathleen Edwards plays The Royal on Saturday

Fresh off the release of her latest album Ottawa singer-songwriter and musician Kathleen Edwards will be stopping at The Royal on Saturday, April 7.

Voyageur – Edwards’ newest release – hit record store and iTunes shelves in January and peaked Canadian charts at number two.

The emotional album takes listeners through Edwards’ journey through her divorce and into a new romance and love.

The album was produced by Edwards herself and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.

Guest musicians like Norah Jones, Francis and the Lights and Stornoway also appear on the record.

Voyageur received rave revues across North America including the Onion’s The A.V. Club, the Boston Phoenix and the Toronto Star.

Her soulful sound combines blues, folk and jazz creating songs that resonate with her audience.

With the release of Edwards’ album Failer in 2002, Rolling Stone declared one of the year’s most promising new acts and The New York Times called her a writer whose songs can “pare situations down to a few dozen words while they push country-rock towards its primal impulses of thump and twang.”

Edwards is a four time Juno nominee.

There are only a few tickets left for Edwards’ show at The Royal. Tickets are available at The Royal, online at liveattheroyal.com, Eddy Music and Urban Legends.
