Kat Edmonson is an award- winning songwriter and singer " with an equal foothold in jazz, cabaret and vintage cosmopolitanism pop"(the new york times). She has been featured on Austin City Limits, Tiny Desk Concerts, A prairie Home Companion, and The Late Show with David Letterman.
Raised on the music and film of the early-to-mid-twentieth century, Kat is a rare artist who embodies the spirit of the past while remaining resolutely au courant. She performs original songs and familiar classics in her live show, interweaving humorous anecdotes, philosophical musings, and her love of film with disarming candor and vulnerability. Her longtime band members' keen and sensitive accompaniment allows Kat to freely veer off-script as she's often inclined to do.
The Texas native began crafting her signature sound while performing in Austin's local club circuit for years before releasing her debut LP in 2009. Now Kat Edmonson lives in New York.
