Kat Edmonson Releases The Big Picture Out September 30 On Sony Music Masterworks

OCTOBER TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

NEW YORK, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kat Edmonson announces October tour dates in support of her third album, The Big Picture out September 30 via Sony Music Masterworks. A full tour will follow in early 2015. Edmonson's premiere track "Rainy Day Woman" is available via iTunes HERE and for streaming on SoundCloud HERE.  Check out her new video album trailer HERE. The album is her label debut and was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney) in his Los Angeles studio. Of the album, Edmonson states, "There's no particular theme, but there are some commonalities, one of which is my ever-underlying influence from motion pictures and film scores. I have always felt that music and film go hand in hand, because that was how I was first exposed to music—from old movies and musicals—and to me there wasn't a separation between an actor acting, dancing and singing." Presale tickets are available now while general ticketing is available is August 8 at katedmonson.com. See full tour dates below.

This album follows her 2012 release, Way Down Low, her first collection that included original material. The New York Times hailed the album as "fresh as a spring bouquet," and The Boston Globe called it "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.
