Edwards honest about struggles From page 13 just wanted to be with them all the time, not just mine, but other people’s.” Over the years Edwards has learned the importance of staying true to herself, citing Neil Young as inspiration. Young has faced harsh criticism for albums at different times in his career but has remained steadfast in his artistic vision. “I think that’s really brave and that’s the kind of artist I hope I can be.” Some of the challenges Edwards faced last year were the result of her honesty and openness, leaving her feeling extremely vulnerable at times. Parts of Voyageur were inspired by her divorce to Colin Cripps, a longtime collaborator, including on her third record, 2008’s Asking For Flowers. Voyageur was produced by Edwards’ boyfriend at the time, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), with whom she’s since parted ways. The situation led to the constant question of, “‘So you made a record about your ex-husband with your new boyfriend,’” she says, that while fair, left her feeling, “embarrassed. You’re just like, ‘Wow, I sound like a total asshole.’” When asked whether she plans to be more protective of her personal life in the future, Edwards says no. “It’s the people who are honest and upfront about the struggles of life or the complexities of the unpredictable ironies and the hilarity of our own stupidity and our

own humanness that I find to be the biggest comfort,” she says. One of the greatest compliments she’s ever received and that’s helped her heal is to know that her songs have helped other people when they’ve faced hard times. “Maybe my job in life is to write music that brings other people comfort,” she says. “I don’t know, that’s what music did for me when I was young so maybe that’s what keeps me going.” These days, Edwards is taking it easy, staying close to home and relaxing in her current relationship, lying in wait for the madness associated with an upcoming move into a new house at the end of the summer. In terms of her next music project, she has a few ideas percolating, potentially releasing a ‘90s cover album. She’s recorded a few tracks so far, including a version of Roxette’s “It Must Have Been Love,” which aired on a recent episode of Private Practice. As well, she hopes to one day put together an all-female Canadian supergroup with Georgas, Jenn Grant and Rose Cousins by her side, calling themselves Modern Beaver. “I feel really lucky that I’m a 10-year survivor of touring in a van with boys and being the boss and having to navigate going from being green . . . to holy shit, I’m one of the survivors of this route I’ve chosen,” she says. “I don’t have all the answers, but I have a shitload of experience.”
