Kat Edmonson is a buoyant singer-songwriter from Texas whose tiny stature belies a powerful voice. She makes smart, familiar pop; though steeped in vintage tradition, her style leans left of center. Kat’s biggest strength is her rich vocal control: alternately coy, elegant, and poignant, she often shifts tone effortlessly from one note to another, and she’s not afraid to leave in the occasional touch of gravel in her recordings. The singer is exceptionally present both on her albums and in concert.
She’s performed with Willie Nelson, opened for Smokey Robinson, toured with Boz Scaggs and Lyle Lovett, and headlined the Taichung Jazz Festival in Taiwan. She also recorded "Baby It's Cold Outside" with Lovett for his new album Release Me.
Of her heroes, she says, "I pretty much look up to everyone that’s good . . . but out of all of them, Nina Simone . . . she does musically what I want to do. She defies genre. She exists as a sound unto herself."
"I think she’s great. She’s got such an authentic, almost old-time jazz quality about her." - Lyle Lovett
