Kat Edmonson’s short stature and pixie cut might not be the first image you would expect behind her voice if you had just heard her music. The Texas native’s vocal control is astonishing, she glides effortlessly between tones; from lilting elegance and a scintillating falsetto to a confident and not at all unpleasantly raspy gravel. Kat’s first record, the 2009 release Take To the Sky, investigates the root of what can turn pop songs into standards.

Singer-songwriter Kat Edmonson has taken Texas by storm. Coming from the emerging Austin singer-songwriter scene, her self-released debut, Take to the Sky, made the top 20 on Billboard's jazz charts and landed her performances with Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett. Her newest album, Way Down Low, is the first to feature her original material. The album reached #1 on both Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and iTunes' singer-songwriter and jazz charts. Edmonson funded Way Down Low through a Kickstarter campaign and received rave reviews from critics such as the New York Times and NPR.org/music. Listeners alike have fawned over her unique sound that aligns itself with the blues, pop, rock, and soul genres.
