Vintage pop artist Kat Edmonson is releasing her new album Old Fashioned Gal on April 27 via Spinnerette Records. We’ve got a pair of free tickets up for grabs for select dates on her upcoming spring tour!
Kat Edmonson premiered her self-directed “Old Fashioned Gal” video for Valentines Day. Her forthcoming album of the same name is set for release April 27 on Spinnerette Records and her tour supporting the full length begins April 20. NPR Music’s “Songs We Love” premiered the title track, noting that “Edmonson is astute with her references, and canny about the flirtation at the center of the song.”
Kat explains, “this was my first time writing and directing a video. I was scared and reluctant to begin this project because I had no idea what I was doing. In real-life, I am often asked to sing at get-togethers so acting out this scene was sort of a familiar situation.”
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. I’d 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 head—a film not yet made. I ultimately sat down and wrote an entire outline for a screenplay—a musical, of course—with 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.”
