    Total Freedom is aptly named, as these songs are the work of a songwriter who demands no more and no less; now more than ever, Kathleen Edwards is living and making music in a way that honors her own spirit, and it reminds us why you don't take the work of someone this talented for granted.

  • Americana Highways

    The album has a dreamy feel that has as much to do with the keyboards and synths as the spacious production. Still, the real magic here is Edwards’ ability to tackle the heaviest of subjects head on, never shirking risk and accepting inevitable change. Total Freedom is worth the time and journey.

    Regardless, in a year of powerhouse female vocalists, Edwards deserves her place near the upper ranks with Voyageur.

    Edwards, too, knows how to spin a story, but there’s no con on Total Freedom—just a welcome progress report from a musician who took the time she needed, and returns stronger and wiser than she was before, with a first-class collection of songs to prove it.
