Voyageur is co-produced by Edwards herself and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, who also features on the record together with Bon Iver drummer S. Carey, Norah Jones, Phil Cook of Megafaun and many others. Edwards is currently opening for Bon Iver on their European tour so check out the tour dates and listen to "Sidecar" below.
