KAT EDMONSON is an award-winning songwriter and singer “with an equal foothold in jazz, cabaret, and vintage cosmopolitanism pop” (The New York Times). She has performed on “NPR Tiny Desk Concerts,” “Austin City Limits,” “A Prairie Home Companion,” and “The Tonight Show.” Her performance on “CBS This Morning: Saturday” garnered the program’s highest rated viewership since 2006. In 2016, she appeared in Woody Allen’s Cafe Society as a 1930s jazz singer and was highlighted on the official soundtrack performing her version of “Mountain Greenery.” Edmonson’s experience in Allen’s film inspired her to study the craft of acting. She subsequently spent two years in conservatory at The William Esper School in New York City. In 2018, Edmonson joined Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series in the show Matt Ray Plays Hoagy Carmichael featuring Kat Edmonson. From Carnegie Hall to the Montreux Jazz Festival to the Blue Note in Japan, Edmonson has played major stages across the United States, Europe, and Asia. In addition to her own headline tours, Edmonson has gone on the road in support of Lyle Lovett, Chris Isaak, Gary Clark, Jr., Jaime Cullum, Asleep at the Wheel, and Shawn Colvin, and has opened shows for Smokey Robinson, George Benson, Michael Kiwanuka, Nick Lowe and Willie Nelson. The genre-defying artist has released six Billboard jazz chart-topping albums to date. NPR calls her “a savvy student of ‘60s film soundtracks, jazz-pop stylists and Brill Building and Tin-Pan Alley songcraft,” and says her original compositions “all exude a twinkly throwback charm.” Her songs have been featured in major motion pictures, television shows, and commercials including her original “Lucky,” featured in the Coca-Cola “Footprints” ad from the 2014 Winter Olympics.
