Kat Edmonson

Naked Soul

Friday, November 4, 2016
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

Texas native Kat Edmonson grew up in Houston and sang in the local club scene in Austin for several years before self-releasing her first album, Take to the Sky, in 2009. She is now touring in support of her latest release, The Big Picture, which is her Sony Music Masterworks debut. The album was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney) in his Los Angeles studio. This album follows her 2012 release, Way Down Low, which the New York Times hailed as “fresh as a spring bouquet” and Steve Greenlee of the Boston Globe called “one of the greatest vocal albums I’ve ever heard.”

The musicians in the series draw upon the universal themes inherent in Himalayan art—spirituality, peace, tolerance, wisdom, compassion—on select Friday evenings. Learn More
