Review

I think she's great. She's got such an authentic, almost old-time jazz quality about her. --Lyle Lovett

memorable and contagious. --NPR Music

a voice that at times exudes raspy confidence of a veteran soul singer, and at other times recalls the coquettish quality of a silver screen starlet. --AOL Spinner

5.0 out of 5 stars Girl has THE GOODS April 27, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
We make allowances for so much music. It's "good enough," it sounds nice, it works as ambience, and maybe it even rewards the occasional moment of listening. But once in a great while, something comes along that's so electrifyingly TRUE and real, it stops you in your tracks. Kat Edmonson's new disc is a superb masterpiece.

Her voice? Imagine a melange of Billie Holliday, Blossom Dearie, Gillian Welch, even Björk. Kat's is not a "pretty" voice - it's a reedy and at times even raspy voice, though it's warm and conversational, and her falsetto is silky. But this voice burrows into your cells, and by the closing minutes of the record, you find it is scratching a deep, deep itch.

I have rarely heard a singer who doesn't merely sing a lyric, she virtually READS the words. Listen especially to "Nobody Knows That" (and just try not to have your heart broken in tiny pieces), and you realize there is a fierce sincerity that's often missing from singers with prettier voices or greater "technique." There's a gravity in Edmonson, an artistry that understands human difficulty and perplexity, and how this arose in a singer still not out of her twenties, I'll never know.

The two riskiest songs come near the end: "Whispering Grass", and the reprise of "I Don't Know"; risky because they're remarkably spacious, with little shimmering silences between the notes. You don't play these songs in the car, or walking down the street with your I-Pod. You carve out a quiet space and you LISTEN.

And you will never think of "singing" the same way again. Kat Edmonson is just that good, just that mysterious, just that compassionate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transports You to Other Times April 11, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Do you ever feel like you just weren't made for these times? So do I, and so does Kat Edmonson. Her new album, her sophomore production titled "Way Down Low", transports you back to the time period you likely find most agreeable - whatever that time period may be. This album is different in some ways from her first, which in my opinion was a triumph. "Down Low" is a bit bluer and softer. While the tone may be different, Kat's voice is the same - amazing; though "Hopelessly Blue" brings her deeper than we've heard before. The exception to this bluesy tone is "Lucky", which though we've heard it before, excels on this album. Also of note is "I'm Not it Love", which is fun and playful. On the whole, Kat scores big. I truly enjoyed this album; and if you are a fan of Kat Edmonson, I know you will as well. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who IS this woman? She left me breathless! June 4, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I was driving home from work one day and was flipping through the station. To give you a little back ground into who I am, I'm a mid 40's young male who has listened from everything to RAP, country, classical, R&B & even Ska. I guess my music tastes are a little eclectic to say the least.

I'm also a writer and sometimes I write to music which provides a back drop to some of my more dramatic pieces. As I listened to this young woman do her interview on NPR I was mesmerized and stunned with her hauntingly familiar voice.

She reminds me so much of Billie Holiday, Etta James and so many beautiful blues singers that just aren't present in today's pop tart market. Her voice really threw me back to the days where we only had a few channels to watch and so the old classic movies were all we could catch on a Saturday night.

I started listening to Adele when she first started out and as soon as I heard her I said, "This woman is gonna take the world by storm." My prediction was true then and it will be true as well for this young woman.

I don't know if Ms. Edmonson will ever get a chance to read this review (hope so), but I can tell you that you touched my heart & soul with your earthy tones. I pray that you continue using your beautiful gift of expression to inspire others. GOD bless!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing talent April 18, 2012
By El
Format:Audio CD
Heard her NPR interview and had to go to the computer right after to buy her CD. She's fantastic and I hope she comes to a nearby venue for a performance. Just amazing talent. Hearing her voice made me close my eyes and savor the entire experience of magical listening

5.0 out of 5 stars Kat is simply amazing. April 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD
When you first see Kat singing live, your first instinct is to fall in love with her. I recommend going with it.

This new CD showcases her talents and her range with a vengeance. From the opening track, she takes you on a wonderful journey, through rainbows, heartache and redemption. My main problem is having to sit in the car to finish the songs after I arrive at my destination...

If you have a chance to catch one of her shows and don't, you only have yourself to blame. I put her in the same category as Carolyn Wonderland, David Garza, Tommy Elskes, Matt Hubbard, and Michael Hale; road trip worthy. I have driven across Texas to see each of them, and look forward to catching as many shows as I can when she tours to promote this new cd.

Thank you Kat!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Thing January 22, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I first heard her on NPR's "Music Live from Austin" -- a program I don't nromally watch as I am a big jazz fan. WOW...I thought, this is the real thing. The timing, the phrasing. She enters the soul of the song. Downloading and listening to Edmonson confirmed my first impression. My favorite song "I Don't Know- (Reprise)"

Sweet sounding stuff. Did she really make Lyle Lovett sing that hard? Girls with voices like Nanci Griffith, Allyson Krauss and now Kat Edmonson are just too hard to resist.
