Growing up in Houston, Edmonson wrote her first song on a school bus at age nine. The Texas native evolved her signature style in Austins local club circuit for several years before self-releasing Take To The Sky in 2009. In the proceeding years, Edmonson toured throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan while also supporting high profile acts including Lyle Lovett, Chris Isaak, Gary Clark, Jr., Jaime Cullum, Shawn Colvin, Smokey Robinson, George Benson, Michael Kiwanuka, Nick Lowe and Willie Nelson.
Possessing an airy, light voice with a sly touch, jazz vocalist Edmonson brings both the songs and the sensibility of the Great American Songbook into the 21st century. A Texas native and Brooklyn transplant, Edmonson forged her sound performing in small rooms and clubs before touring worldwide. She has appeared in major motion pictures, performed on radio and television, and released four groundbreaking albums to date. Her newest album, Old Fashioned Gal, is out now on Spinnerette Records. Her tour supporting the full-length album continues with major tour stops throughout the U.S. 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. Id 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 heada film not yet made. I ultimately sat down and wrote an entire outline for a screenplaya musical, of coursewith 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.
