Tickets are on sale now at http://www.katedmonson.com/.

The Big Picture debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart, #1 on Contemporary Jazz Chart and #2 on the Total Jazz Chart. Last year, she performed on “CBS This Morning: Saturday,” garnering the program’s highest rated viewership since 2006. Edmonson also shared the stage with nine-time Grammy award-winners Ray Benson & Asleep at the Wheel on the “Late Show with David Letterman” during the final months of the program. Watch the performance HERE.

The Big Picture is Edmonson’s label debut and was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney) in his Los Angeles studio. This album follows her 2012 release, Way Down Low, which The New York Times hailed as “fresh as a spring bouquet” and The Boston Globe called “one of the greatest vocal albums I’ve ever heard.” The record debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart and was featured on several major year-end “Best of 2012” lists including Downbeat Magazine, WNYC Soundcheck’s “Best Live Performances” and Daytrotter’s “Best Sessions of 2012.” Edmonson was featured on NPR an impressive five times that same year.

Texas native Edmonson grew up in Houston and sang in the local club scene in Austin for several years before self-releasing Take To The Sky in 2009. A musical kinship developed from performing with fellow Texan Lyle Lovett led to a high-profile duet of the Christmas classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” which the pair performed together on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
