New Canadian Music Releases – December 6, 2011


English: Kathleen Edwards performing at the Po...

Kathleen Edwards

 

It has surely been a dry spell for new releases by Canadian artists.  I skipped last weeks post due to nothing to post on and almost decided to do the same this week.   Fortunately, songstress Kathleen Edwards released a single anticipating her Mid-January release of her album “Voyageur”,  As I normally don’t post on singles, I thought this would be an opportunity to, first, have some continuity in my posting, and second do a 2fer.  Consider this to both be an entry on new music and a Canadian Classic post as well.  Ottawa born Edwards has been recording since 1999, and has released 4 albums and 3 EPs since then.  Her work has recently been featured in the movie “Elizabethtown” and she has played with such notables as Bryan Adams, Jim Cuddy and the Arkells.  She is a two-time nominee for Canada’s Juno Awards.  The video off her new album is titled “Change the Sheets” and the classic video is “I Make The Dough, You Get The Glory”.  The second song is a popular Canadian hockey related tune, and features NHL greats Marty McSorley and Paul Coffey, among others.

  1. Ta for the ping back. We can’t wait for Ms Edwards’ new album and have featured her regularly in the last few weeks. We’re all for this type of Canadian export – along with kd Lang, and The Wailin’ Jenny’s, long may it continue!

    • You are welcome. The Jennys are great. Not a big KD fan, although a smashingly great singer. I do love supporting Canadian music and musicians. I’ll stop by in a while and check out your blog.

  2. Thanks again for another good pick.
    2nd video was hilarious.
