At once dreamy and seductive, poignant and romantic, singer-songwriter Kat Edmonson’s “vintage pop” is like the Great American Songbook meets Turner Classic Movies. Her inimitable “fresh as a spring bouquet” (New York Times) music has topped the Billboard jazz charts, made her an NPR favorite, and earned multiple film and soundtrack appearances. Simply irresistible.
Her latest recording, Dreamer Do, is scheduled for release February 7, 2020. The album begins with a promising invitation to settle in for the night and to dream (“Go to Sleep”). Joy and magic are revealed (“In a World of My Own”), but soon a left turn is taken (“When You Wish Upon a Star”), and a wild night ensues.
At the heart of the story, Kat’s vulnerable original, “Too Late to Dream” poses the central question: “Are the messages we receive as children about following our dreams sustainable or relevant through adult life?”
Dreamers Do is a mix of Edmonson’s original songs and re-imagined American Songbook standards (many of them mid-20th century Disney songs) arranged in Kat’s trademark vintage-pop, jazz, and chamber-pop style
