Kat Edmonson Announces First Headlining Tour
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."
