Hennessy shares the story behind the song “Edmonton”. The song was written for her grandmother who immigrated to Canada from Ukraine as a small child.

“This is for a lot of friends of mine who immigrated from a lot of places trying to escape some pretty dark things and the courage it takes to do that. “
