Kat Edmonson, Chris Isaak,
Following a string of high-profile dates with Gary Clark Jr., Kat Edmonson will embark on another run November 23 supporting the iconic Chris Isaak. The shows support Edmonson's recent release WAY DOWN LOW which debuted #1 on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart. It's been a breakout year for Edmonson who also recently taped performances for Austin City Limits, Dan Rather Reports, NPR’s WORLD CAFE and eTown. She's also established herself as a headliner, selling out shows at New York’s Joe’s Pub and Boston’s Scullers Club. See full list of dates below.
On WAY DOWN LOW, Edmonson makes her songwriting and production debut. She performs with noted fan Lyle Lovett on “Long Way Home,” which Entertainment Weekly calls “an airy country duet.” The album was recorded at the historic Avatar Studio and The Capitol Studios with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Al Schmitt (Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke) and features input from legendary producer Phil Ramone (Paul Simon, Billy Joel).
The Texas native grew up in Houston with a mother who introduced her to the Great American Songbook. Determined to be a singer, she auditioned for American Idol during its second season but soon returned from Hollywood to Texas. Back in Austin, Kat became a regular at the Elephant Room, building a following and making musical connections that energized her career. Her self-released 2009 debut album TAKE TO THE SKY hit the top 20 on Billboard’s jazz charts, adding enough juice that she found herself playing alongside Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett. A musical kinship with Lovett led to a duet on the holiday classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” which the pair performed on tour and on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
