Kat Edmonson's first album, "Take to the Sky" made many national top 10 lists of 2009, became a top seller on iTunes and Amazon, and debuted at #21 on the Billboard jazz charts in the first week of it's release. After the success of her freshman debut, Edmonson went on to perform with Willie Nelson, open for Smokey Robinson and headline at the 2010 Taichung Jazz Festival in Taiwan. Edmonson also developed a friendship with fellow Texan, Lyle Lovett after Lovett saw one of her shows in Austin. She opened for Lyle Lovett and His Large Band for a portion of their 2010 summer tour and performed the winter classic, "Baby It's Cold Outside," with Lovett on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in December of 2010. Her single release, 'Lucky', appeared on the award-winning Showtime series, United States of Tara. Edmonson has thus far released all of her music on the record label that she co-founded in 2009 and continues to operate independently without a label. Recently, Edmonson was honored with a gift from METAlliance to record her new album for two days at Avatar Studios in New York City with the legendary Al Schmitt and Phil Ramone. She launched a Kickstarter campaign on March 1 to help raise funds for her second album. This campaign will continue through April 1. Visit http://kck.st/if2wGJ to find out how to help.
