Canadian singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards has finished recording her new album, “Asking for Flowers” and will release it March 4.
The album, the Ottawa native’s first in three years, was produced by Edwards herself along with Jim Wilson, who mixed her 2005 album “Back To Me.”
“Flowers” features a number of well-known backing players in the music industry, including Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench, Bob Dylan drummer Don Heffington, bassist Bob Glaub (Jackson Browne, Leonard Cohen), guitarist Colin Cripps (Sarah McLachlan, Bryan Adams) and pedal steel player Greg Leisz (Smashing Pumpkins, Wilco).
Edwards recently appeared on Joe Doe’s “A Year In The Wilderness,” contributing vocals to three songs.
The Ottawa native rose to fame with her 2003 debut LP “Failer,” which was nominated for a Juno for best solo roots and traditional album. “Back To Me” earned her another Juno nomination in 2006, for adult alternative album of the year.
