Kathleen Edwards tends to 'Flowers' on early 2009 road trip
Alt-country singer/songwriter Kathleen Edwards will get a chance to showcase her recent "Asking for Flowers" album for new audiences during a headlining outing early next year.
The Canadian performer--who is currently out on a co-billed tour with X frontman John Doe that continues tonight (11/11) in Dallas--kicks off her own headlining run Jan. 30 in Kent, OH. The 15-city solo trek follows a stretch in Europe that can be glimpsed at Edwards' website. Her current and future North American dates are included below.
Released early last spring, "Asking for Flowers" is Edwards' third studio album, following 2005's "Back to Me" and 2003's "Failer." The singer utilized session musicians on the new set, a break from earlier recordings that featured the singer's working band in the studio as well as on the road.
"My hope for this record was to play with some musicians I had not yet worked with," Edwards said in her bio.
Edwards was a short-listed nominee for the 2008 Polaris Music Prize, awarded annually to the best full-length Canadian album. The award was eventually presented to Dan Snaith's Caribou project for last year's "Andorra."
