Reviews:

The Big Picture builds upon Kat s previous work, but offers even more of her writing, she wrote or co-wrote eleven songs on the album, and more of Kat s unique sound. With no formal vocal training, she instead learned her craft as a child by watching Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals, drawing inspiration for this album from old films and her favorite songwriters. The result is a delicious batch of pop perfection with songs that are tight, polished and more upbeat than anything she s done before. Edmonson draws from a wellspring of 50s and 60s pop, AM radio, present-day pop-rock, and movie soundtracks. The Big Picture is smart, sophisticated and fun, simultaneously classic and modern.

Kat Edmonson has performed on Austin City Limits and on Prairie Home Companion and has established herself as a successful headliner selling out shows at the Paramount in Austin, New York s Joe s Pub and Boston s Sculler s. She is also a sought-after opener, touring with Chris Isaak and Gary Clark Jr. Kat is one of the faces of the makeup brand bareMinerals, performing across the U.S. as part of their Force of Beauty campaign. Her song Lucky, from her last album, was featured in Coca-Cola s Footsteps ad that aired during the 2014 Sochi Winter Games and also in a recent Chevrolet commercial.
