Listen to Kathleen Edwards’ ‘Hard on Everyone’ from Dickinson, Season 3, Episode 1

Canadian singer songwriter Kathleen Edwards’ ‘Hard on Everyone‘ was played on Dickinson last night — Dickinson, Season 3, Episode 1, “”Hope” is the thing with feathers“.

The song was played over the end credits.

Kathleen Edwards’ ‘Hard on Everyone‘ is from the singer’s fifth and latest studio album Total Freedom, which was released in 2020 via Dualtone Records.

The album charted in the #24 spot on the Canadian Albums chart, as well as charting on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.

Total Freedom also received acclaim from critics.

The singer herself currently has five albums out, three EPs and a slew of singles, some of which have charted high up the Adult Alternative Airplay chart in the United States.

Kathleen Edwards is also very much of a go-getter as, rather than waiting for major record labels to come to her, she self-released her debut EP Building 55 in 1999.

She then followed up that release with a Canadian tour she completely organized and promoted herself.

A smart move it seems as, not only did it help her attract the attention of Rounder Records who she eventually signed with in 2002, but it also made Building 55 a collector’s item.

Well, she only printed 500 copies of the EP so, yep, if you ever get your hands on a copy it could be worth quite a few hundred.

Listen to Kathleen Edwards’ ‘Hard on Everyone‘ on both her Total Freedom album, and in a cool live performance she gave of the song at Quitters coffee shop during her album release party.

Tthe coffee shop, by the way, is owned by the singer herself. How cool is that?

You can learn more about Edwards via the Canadian singer’s official website.
