A Juno-nominee with several roots-flavoured albums under her belt, Kathleen Edwards is no stranger to fans of Canadian music.

However, the Ottawa singer-songwriter ventures into new territory in her latest album, Voyageur. Born of emotional upheaval, Voyageur sees Edwards take a turn towards a more lush and musical sound. It was produced by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, her new partner musically and romantically.

Edwards talks to Jian Ghomeshi of CBC Radio's Q about being a music world "It Girl" once again and being more involved in the production of her new record.
