Raised on the music and film of the early to mid-20th century, award-winning songwriter and singer Kat Edmonson 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.
Featured on Austin City Limits, Tiny Desk Concerts, A Prairie Home Companion, and The Tonight Show, Kat Edmonson has “an equal foothold in jazz, cabaret and vintage cosmopolitanism pop” (The New York Times). Her longtime band members’ keen and sensitive accompaniment allows Edmonson to freely veer off-script as she’s often inclined to do.
Edmonson’s sixth studio album Holiday Swingin’! A Kat Edmonson Christmas Vol. 1,released in November 2021, was included on the New York Times list of “13 Albums That Revisit (and Redefine!) Holiday Classics” and described by Jazziz as "impeccably hip.” In 2020, the vintage-pop and jazz artist was on a 40-city tour promoting her new critically acclaimed album Dreamers Do when the pandemic struck. Edmonson quickly transformed her living room into an attractive set where she performed live every Sunday night. Drawing from her love of old variety shows, Edmonson dubbed her livestream The Kat Edmonson Show. Her modern-day variety show ran for 66 episodes.
Edmonson’s fifth album, Dreamers Do (2020) combines mid-20th century Disney songs (from Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Mary Poppins, Babes in Toyland), with familiar classics (What A Wonderful World as well as All I Do is Dream of You from Singin’ in the Rain), and features two new, original songs (Too Late to Dream and Someone’s In The House.) The LP, which debuted at number one on the Billboard Traditional Jazz Chart, takes place in a single night, from bedtime till morning.
Recently, The Songwriters Hall of Fame awarded Edmonson the Abe Olman Scholarship Award for Excellence in Songwriting. Her original song Lucky was featured in the Coca-Cola “Footprints” ad from the 2014 Winter Olympics.
