iTunes Review

Recorded in Los Angeles with Whiskeytown producer Jim Scott and a veteran group of studio musicians — keyboardist Benmont Tench, bassist Bob Glaub, drummer Don Heffington and pedal steel guitarist Greg Leisz — Canadian country-singer Kathleen Edwards’ third album, 2008’s Asking for Flowers, is a solid, professional look at a world that is hardly as polished and self-assured. The band never falters with its modest, economical backing, offering up the perfect nightscape, leaving all the right spaces for Edwards to tell her stories and speak her mind. And speak it she does without restraint with songs that reflect her time spent on the road and the changes in perspective that living and aging bring. “The Cheapest Key” signals she has no time for the petty complaints of the past. “Sure As Shit” is a pointed solo acoustic lament that pulls no punches on her need for companionship. For “I Make the Dough, You Get the Glory,” Edwards imagines herself as the successful country musician and not the critics’ darling she’s been to this point. Surely, she’d like to break from cult artist to the big time, but clearly only on her own terms.

Customer Reviews

A bucket full of honest melodies

Having the previous albums, and loving them, I was initially concerned about the album (as a whole) having only heard the radio pushed "The Cheapest Key", and hoping and praying for a diverse album. Now, having purchased the album all my fears are alieved as I it meanders through my ears at work. As one of my professors used to say, "Some things are better felt than telt." Kathleen is the culmination of this quote. Her music can touch you on all levels. She sings with uncomfortable honesty in a world of hype and facade. Once again, I welcome her music into my life- it will be in heavy rotation for a while.

The best album of 2008 so far.

An absolutely stunning album, rock solid from beginning to end. Full of sass, wit, and heart. "Goodnight, California" is probably the best Blue Rodeo song that Blue Rodeo never wrote.

Ahh Kitty, we love ya

"I've been known to be vague and often pointless..." but today let me be clear: A supreme talent; words and music get right inside; her magic moves me.

A fixture on the Americana landscape, Kathleen Edwards was born in Ottawa, Canada, the daughter of foreign service parents who played piano and guitar in their spare time. At five, Edwards began to study classical violin, which continued through her early teens. At that point, the Edwards family moved overseas. Removed from the influence of mainstream North American pop music, Edwards delved into her older brother's collection of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and early Tom Petty records. After high school,...
