New music from an "Old Fashioned Gal"
Growing up in Houston, Edmonson wrote her first song on a school bus at age nine. The Texas native evolved her signature style in Austin’s local club circuit for several years before touring throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan. Kat's 2012 release " Way Down Low" was described by The New York Times as “fresh as a spring bouquet,” while 2014's "The Big Picture" confirmed the promise of this vintage yet totally contemporary artist by topping jazz charts. Now Kat is back in Michigan with a new album, "Old Fashioned Gal. Kat says, “I wrote these songs while holed up in my Brooklyn apartment during the winter of 2016. I had a terrible, reoccurring cold that winter and was often laid up in bed. I’d go back and forth from watching 1930s movies on Turner Classic Movies to working on a song. While writing this album, I realized that I was seeing what looked like scenes from a film in my head—a film not yet made. I ultimately sat down and wrote an entire outline for a screenplay—a musical, of course—with this music, the score. I processed a great deal of self-doubt in order to write this hopeful record. 'Old Fashioned Gal' is about believing in yourself even when it seems no one else will.” Brooklyn guitarist-songwriter Matt Munisteri opens.
