“A timeless sound…” —NPR “All Things Considered”

Paste Magazine is premiering a new song from Kat Edmonson, “Oh My Love,” from her upcoming album The Big Picture (due out September 30 via Sony Music Masterworks) Of the song Edmonson says, “While writing and producing ‘Oh My Love,’ I wanted to capture all of the romance and elegance that struck me upon listening to Count Basie’s ‘L’il Darlin’ for the first time.” Listen on Paste HERE, share HERE and is available as an Instant Grat track on iTunes with pre-order.

USA Today recently premiered the video for “Rainy Day Woman” saying the album’s “tunes are inspired by the lush orchestral works we often hear in those hyper-stylized ‘60s classics.” Watch the video via YouTube 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. She has October tour dates in support of her new music with a new dates added at North Oak Cliff Music Festival in Dallas, and a performance at the legendary KLRU Studio 6A in Austin, former home of Austin City Limits. Tickets for the show, which will be broadcast live on KUTX, are only available with a purchase of The Big Picture from local staple Waterloo Records, starting this Friday, September 12th. Please see full tour dates below.

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 performed on Austin City Limits, made her Prairie Home Companion debut, and was featured on NPR an impressive five times that same year. The songstress also found herself touring with several well-established acts such as Chris Isaak, Gary Clark Jr. and Michael Kiwanuka.

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.”
