Kathleen Edwards is a master of the cover song. Between 2002 and 2012 she covered dozens of artists from Neil to AC/DC, John Prine to Tom T. Hall via Jeannie C. Riley. She has that reare ability to make someone else's song her own-just listen to the title song, her rendition of "Changes," the lovely "Feeling Yourself Disintegrate" and the fragile yet ultimately triumphant "Bitter Beauty."

After recording and touring behind her last album, Voyageur, KE was physically and emotionally exhausted (and maybe just sick of the whole fucking music biz thing) and simply quit. There are many who still carry a torch for her and her music, though. She was/is an authentic, genuine and supremely talented songwriter and performer. Indeed, by the time Voyageur was released, she was exploring new musical styles, song structure, and live performance configurations.

My wish for Kathleen is that she come off her extended hiatus from the stage and studio with a small East Coast solo tour this spring...maybe drag Jim Bryson along just for the hell of it. The songs would all be covers and the venues would be small bars.

So come on, Kathleen. Get out on the road this spring, drink some bourbon, play some covers and maybe try out a couple new ones (I just know you've been writing!). I've already put your setlist together! ;-)
