Kat Edmonson

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 a given. After a stint at college in Charleston, South Carolina, Edmonson returned to Texas and decided to follow the musical call. An audition for America Idol in 2002 landed Edmonson a trip to Hollywood and a spot in the top 48. Her Idol dreams ended abruptly when judge Randy Jackson told the singer she didn't "look like a star." After her exit from Idol, Edmonson began honing her chops at open-mike nights and eventually made the transition to full-time performer. Her debut album, 2009's Take to the Sky, was a mix of classic and modern songs, and proved Edmonson was more than ready for her jazz ascension. In 2012, she returned with the Kickstarter-funded Way Down Low. ~ Todd Sterling, Rovi

A lot of people don't know this, but Kat has a huge crush on me. I can hear it in her voice!
ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER VOICE !!!!
Beautiful eclectic version of CHARADE :-) FLOW
A great voice. Loved it
She will go far in the jazz world. John

The first time I saw or heard her was when she performed on Austin City Limits--she was a smash! Now, I include her in my list of artist stations on Pandora. Reading her Pandora bio, that Randy Jackson on Idol is an idiot. I think she is good looking, and a fun, entertaining songstress. Kat, you can be my Diva, anytime. I'll take back what I said about Randy Jackson--he' s just plain stupid.
Even the cure, sound sexy Ina boss's nova.

I really enjoy the songs she does with just that guitar; simpler is better.

Kat just popped up on Pandora. With all the Diana Krall thumbs up I have given on this site, it is amazing that Kat took so long to appear. Keep up the good work Kat. Very enjoyable listening

Awesome voice - love it :)
WHAT A VOICE STANDS OUT FROM THE REST, LOVE TO HEAR HER, I LOVE HER LOVE

I, too, enjoy the many commercials that benefit from her voice, but when she sings Nobody Knows That on ACL (and YouTube), and I can see and hear the pain in the last two lines, it's almost like I get something in my eye every time. Not many singers can do that - thank you, Kat.

Believe she was recently on Austin City Limits - very nice. . .
What a BRILLIANT artist!!! Not sure how I missed getting blown away by Kat Edmonson a lot sooner. She has popped up occasionally on other Pandora stations that I have, and I've liked her very much, but it wasn't until I caught her recent performance on ACL, during a sleepless night, that I was completely blown away! She now has yet another adoring fan in me, and I can't wait to see her in concert, ASAP!!

P.S. Had I known Houston was hiding this little gem, I might never have moved away.

On, by the way, I just discovered Kat on Austin City Limits...WOW . . . . W O W . I just didn't want that performance to end. How refreshing, what a singer, what a wonderful stylist...I am so sorry it took so long to know she was out there. I will not miss another of her performances .

Kat's a purist...a throwback in a modern era. The supreme minimalist in a music culture burdened with over production and noise. Just listen to her...you can hear every single syllable, every nuance, and you just are draw into her charming web. The listener is persuaded that Kat feels every note and every word. She is a great beginning, middle and end to my day. I look forward to seeing her in person asap.
And she just makes me wind down after a long day. Perfect.
And her music just makes me wind down after a long day. Perfect.
Love her voice so much. She is a genius for song writing. Just saw her on ACL for the second time, so amazing!!<3
I hear Kat singing on many tv commercials - or it's someone copying her. Unique, jazzy, sexy, pure.
Absolutely beautiful minimalist voice. Comments comparing her to other more recent artist's voices ie: Blossom Dearie (will have to check her out) and Amy Winehouse (not really), miss the boat. Her voice is reminiscent of that great American treasure, Billie Holiday (may be too old school for some of you younger folks-but look her up on Pandora-you' l l see the similarity and the influence). I love it when young artist are aware of how older/origin a l artists have influenced their work.
Impressive voice ��
Lovely
acadjuric
she is Amy Winehouse and Astrud Gilberto personified! WOW!
First time I heard her sing I thought immediately of Blossom Dearie. Tone, lazy control, and phrasing. Beautiful!
Randy Jackson is a boob
Settle down lucky. She has a lazy control of her voice that is really impressive.
Beautiful voice makes my beard melt. I wanna have her baby. ...
Agreed, Blossom is in there somewhere.
erandybowles
You really need to list Blossom Dearie as the MOST similar artist!
Randy Jackson misses a great singer. I can't fathom how he judges singers.
I will take it. I like I like...
Clean ..clean..cle a n and fresh!

Tommy on martain would say.....Rand y stupid!
carollempick i
Fresh & Passionate.. . w i s h I knew her when I was a kid ;)
Formal training Hell. She has perfect pitch. Her voice sounds like a saxophone.
spark749
Kat is in to win it! Randy is a showman, all hot air and lost that dare. She is a winner!
Wow breath taking
BEEN VEERRRRY LONG TIME SINCE A WOMANS VOICE SOUNDED SO SINCERE AS WELL.. BILLY LIKE.. DONT THINK SO ! THERE IS BILLY THEN THE WIND AND THE OEAN THEN EVERYONE ELSE... I TOO AM IN LOVE(62)
I liked her voice a lot, and style, etc., but I am very very slightly bothered that she sounds quite a bit like Billie Holliday. But only a bit. She's quite a singer.
60 and just fell in love
frankmad99
Being told she didn't look like a star is like saying a Ferrari didn't look, or sound, like a car. So much for 'expert' judgement. Go Kat, go.
she is hot
She was a true star at the live Prairie Home Companion in Austin this past weekend .... LOVE HER!
Just saw Kat at the Paramount Theater...ab s o l u t e l y captivating. It was like you were in this delightful trance of sad to funny feelings. So wonderful to go to a concert and have it all about a voice that rings so pure and simply devine.
bcgator1
What a beautiful voice she has. But the remake of The Cure's Just Like Heaven is absolutely awful.
sailorbroker
A voice of her own. A style of her own. A timeless presentation with passion. We must have another album.
