iTunes Review

Kat Edmonson was born in the '80s, but her first live concert, courtesy of her mother, featured The Ink Spots. Her musical trajectory was set, and that pretty much explained her seemingly instinctual delivery of jazz classics on her 2009 debut, Take to the Sky. With what seems equal parts innate ability and some solid training, her astounding talents take a more expansive turn on Way Down Low. Many of her own tunes—like the pop-inflected treat “Lucky” and the bossa nova–inspired “What Else Can I Do?”—stand strong next to the work of The Beach Boys (she offers a spare and moving cover of “I Just Wasn’t Made for These Times”) and The Ink Spots (her “Whispering Grass” is devastating and lovely, her voice ringing with Billie Holiday–like melancholy). Edmonson does indeed carry a hint of Holiday, along with a dash of Blossom Dearie and traces of Madeleine Peyroux. Her first treatment of the Sonny Henry tune “I Don’t Know” imbues the tune with pop effervescence. Later, in a reprise, she deconstructs the song, delivering a broken and crumbled version palpitating with defeat. It’s a gorgeous moment, one of many on Way Down Low.

Way Down Low

I got the pleasure to know about Kat's talent through a PBS special when playing at Austin. Her talent and voice are jewels that like many others are waiting to become main stream; to me, she is already a star, famous on her own right!!!

Beautiful and unique talent

I saw Kat in Austin and was blown away by her amazing vocal talent. Her phrasing is impeccable and hard to compare to anything else contemporary. Perfect lazy Sunday soundtrack (and any other day of the week). Truly a gifted artist and I haven't been so impressed since I saw Jenny Lewis years ago!

Stopped me in my tracks...

Her voice stopped me in my tracks. What an amazing sound

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...
