Kathleen performs on NPR's Tiny Desk
If you ask Kathleen Edwards, the best thing she ever did was quit.
She had put her guitar away, at least for awhile: she moved back to her hometown of Ottawa and settled down in Stittsville, an old village on the western edge of town. A running inside joke with bandmate Jim Bryson about opening a coffee shop and naming it "Quitters" became reality.
For years, the only new music she heard was playing in the background while she served her regulars at the shop, where she slowly started to fall in love with music again.
