Happy Friday - Kat Edmondson

The other day E was playing with his RC car new expensive hobby of ours and had the TV on for background noise. He had Austin City Limits on PBS on. Austin City Limits is full of awesome music. From jazz to rock to hip hop to tejano music. The show inspired the creation of the Austin City Limits Music Festival, an annual live music festival at Zilker Park in Austin that lots of folks rave about. 

This show is where I found Kat Edmondson. She was on the May 4th show with Norah Jones. I'm not a big fan of Norah Jones, some of her music annoys me. I was in my room messing with the furkids and I heard a different voice. It was high pitched and reminded me of old timey music from the 20's & 30's, kinda like the shit I would hear on Boardwalk Empire I miss that show! Below is the song that was playing that caught my attention.

Kat Edmundson was born in Houston Stand Up! and then moved to Austin, TX. Austin is widely known as the Live Music Capital of the World! It makes sense that if she wanted to sing she should hit that city up. Her first album Take to the Sky had some covers on it and her second album was funded by Kickstarter. I think it's pretty cool that folks help other folks reach their dreams.

If you're into this type of music then check her out. She's doing some pretty awesome things for the music industry and singing with some cool folks. Below is my Spotify playlist of some of her tracks.

..till next time ;]
