Songwriter, vocalist, and Texas native Kat Edmonson is bringing her signature jazz style to the Empire Theatre!

Special guest: Matt Munisteri.

Kat Edmonson’s fourth album, Old Fashioned Gal, is set for release April 27 on Spinnerette Records. NPR Music’s “Songs We Love” premiered the title track, noting, “Edmonson is astute with her references, and canny about the flirtation at the center of the song.” NPR goes on to describe the upcoming LP, saying “The album is a handsome showcase for her songwriting, which has grown ever more confident over the last decade, nostalgic in tone but clear-eyed in the application.”

Of writing Old Fashioned Gal, Edmonson 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.”

The album follows Edmonson’s critically acclaimed 2014 release The Big Picture, which debuted #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers, #1 on the Contemporary Jazz Chart, and #2 on the Total Jazz Chart. 2012’s Way Down Low was described by The New York Times as “fresh as a spring bouquet” while The Boston Globe’s Steve Greenlee heralded it as “one of the greatest vocal albums I’ve ever heard.”

Edmonson’s May 21 concert at the Empire Theatre will help music students in need by benefiting The MusicLink Foundation, a national nonprofit organization that matches music students in need with experienced teachers. This is made possible by a unique partnership between Edmonson’s booking agency, Epstein & Company, and the MusicLink Foundation.

“[Kat Edmonson] is a savvy student of ‘60s film soundtracks, jazz-pop stylists and Brill Building songcraft.” – NPR Music, First Listen
