Kat Edmonson

Jazz chanteuse Kat Edmonson may have had no formal training, but the young vocalist possesses one of the most authentic voices to ever croon selections from the Great American Songbook. One listen to the Houston native's ethereal purr is enough to hook even the most casual music fan, and her song "Lucky" was featured on the MTV series United States of Tara. It was Edmonson's mother's record collection and old movies that initially stirred her artistic soul, but having a career in music wasn't initially a given. After a stint at college in Charleston, South Carolina, Edmonson returned to Texas and decided to follow the musical call. An audition for American Idol in 2002 landed Edmonson a trip to Hollywood and a spot in the Top 48. Her Idol dreams ended abruptly when judge Randy Jackson told the singer she didn't "look like a star." After her exit from Idol, Edmonson began honing her chops at open-mike nights and eventually made the transition to full-time performer. Her debut album, 2009's Take to the Sky, was a mix of classic and modern songs, and proved Edmonson was more than ready for her jazz ascension. Three years later, she returned with the Kickstarter-funded Way Down Low. In 2014, Edmonson released the Mitchell Froom-produced The Big Picture. ~ Todd Sterling, Rovi

Beautiful, unique voice, and also a really nice lady. My daughter and I met her after a Mountain Stage performance and she made a lovely impression. Way Down Low is one of those albums you can listen to over and over.

Whispering Grass, like so many of Kat's songs, is incredibly inventive, beautifully subtle and unique - how many lyrics talk about blabbering trees? Kat appeared in Minneapolis a year or so ago, and I count that as one of the notable disappointme n t s in my life because I missed it - Kat, please come back to the Dakota - pretty please?!

The first time I saw or heard her was when she performed on Austin City Limits--she was a smash! Now, I include her in my list of artist stations on Pandora. Reading her Pandora bio, that Randy Jackson on Idol is an idiot. I think she is good looking, and a fun, entertaining songstress. Kat, you can be my Diva, anytime. I'll take back what I said about Randy Jackson--he' s just plain stupid.

Kat just popped up on Pandora. With all the Diana Krall thumbs up I have given on this site, it is amazing that Kat took so long to appear. Keep up the good work Kat. Very enjoyable listening

I, too, enjoy the many commercials that benefit from her voice, but when she sings Nobody Knows That on ACL (and YouTube), and I can see and hear the pain in the last two lines, it's almost like I get something in my eye every time. Not many singers can do that - thank you, Kat.

Believe she was recently on Austin City Limits - very nice. . .

What a BRILLIANT artist!!! Not sure how I missed getting blown away by Kat Edmonson a lot sooner. She has popped up occasionally on other Pandora stations that I have, and I've liked her very much, but it wasn't until I caught her recent performance on ACL, during a sleepless night, that I was completely blown away! She now has yet another adoring fan in me, and I can't wait to see her in concert, ASAP!!

P.S. Had I known Houston was hiding this little gem, I might never have moved away.

On, by the way, I just discovered Kat on Austin City Limits...WOW . . . . W O W . I just didn't want that performance to end. How refreshing, what a singer, what a wonderful stylist...I am so sorry it took so long to know she was out there. I will not miss another of her performances .

Kat's a purist...a throwback in a modern era. The supreme minimalist in a music culture burdened with over production and noise. Just listen to her...you can hear every single syllable, every nuance, and you just are draw into her charming web. The listener is persuaded that Kat feels every note and every word. She is a great beginning, middle and end to my day. I look forward to seeing her in person asap.

I hear Kat singing on many tv commercials - or it's someone copying her. Unique, jazzy, sexy, pure.

Absolutely beautiful minimalist voice. Comments comparing her to other more recent artist's voices ie: Blossom Dearie (will have to check her out) and Amy Winehouse (not really), miss the boat. Her voice is reminiscent of that great American treasure, Billie Holiday (may be too old school for some of you younger folks-but look her up on Pandora-you' l l see the similarity and the influence). I love it when young artist are aware of how older/origin a l artists have influenced their work.
