Kat Edmonson released her new album Holiday Swingin! A Kat Edmonson Christmas Vol. 1 on November 19. Edmonson reinterpreted classics for the jazz Christmas album, including “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Let It Snow”, “The Christmas Song” and “O Christmas Tree.”
“My band and I had so much fun recording all these Christmas classics, you can actually hear us laughing and joking around. This album is pure joy,” Edmonson says.
Fresh off the heels of her critically acclaimed Dreamers Do LP, Edmonson was in the midst of a 40-city tour across the country when COVID struck the nation, forcing her back home. It was there she was able to pivot and create “The Kat Edmonson Show,” a beloved live, weekly variety show which she performed from her living room. She took live requests from the audience, performed skits, brought in guests, and hosted holiday specials for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and more. Her Christmas show saw over 12,000 viewers.
