I won’t lie. it’s hard for me to get into these singer-songwriter type albums with their folk, country or other influences thrown in the mix. Honestly they all kind of sound the same to me unless the vocals or songs are unique or exceptionally stand-out in some way. No disrespect to Ms. Edwards but while I couldn’t honestly say her album Voyageur, a musing on travel from what I’ve read, was terrible or anything like that, it didn’t cut through for me in a way that made me want to play it again or think that it sounded like it was a real contender the title of the best album made in Canada over the past year. I did like the last track, “For the Record” though. Here’s a couple other tracks from it for you to check out too:
