Kat Edmonson seemingly came out of nowhere in 2009 to take the Austin, TX music scene by storm. The Texas native grew up in Houston with a mother who introduced her to the Great American Songbook. Her self-released debut album "Take To the Sky" hit the top 20 on Billboard’s jazz charts, adding enough juice that she found herself playing gigs with Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett. A musical kinship with Lyle led to a high-profile duet on the Christmas classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” which the pair performed together on tour as well as on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." This set the stage for "Way Down Low," her second record and first to include her original material. The album hit number one on the iTunes jazz chart. After selling out club shows in New York, Boston, Houston, and Los Angeles, Edmonson hit the road last fall supporting fellow Austin musician Gary Clark Jr. and later, Chris Isaak. "I think she’s great," says Lyle. "She’s got such an authentic, almost old-time jazz quality about her." Like the famous Texan Norah Jones, Kat is finding her way between jazz and contemporary songwriting.
