Jazz singer/songwriter Kat Edmonson will be tracked and mixed by the METAlliance founding directors “In Session with The Guys,” October 21 & 22 in NYC at famed Avatar Studios.  Edmonson has been described as “equal parts Billie Holiday and Bjork” in All About Jazz.

Watch this clip from a previous METAlliance session at Avatar and register:

The genre-defying artist recently performed in Woody Allen’s film set in the 1930s, “CafĂ© Society”, and is highlighted on the official soundtrack performing her version of “Mountain Greenery.” Edmonson’s most recent record The Big Picture debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart, #1 on Contemporary Jazz Chart and #2 on the Total Jazz Chart.  The album was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Mitchell Froom in his Los Angeles studio.

“I’ve worked with Kat on a few of her recordings. She is an amazing singer and songwriter and a lot of fun in the studio. A total professional,” says Grammy-winning engineer Al Schmitt, who mixed Edmonson’s first album.  “We’ll be recording tracks for her new album, so this is a unique chance to see a true artist making great music in the studio.”

Edmonson added, “What good fortune I have to be back with these legendary engineers in this legendary recording studio. I’m thrilled to be working with the Guys again and I’m anticipating so many magical moments with them and the musicians and the recording devotees. It’s gonna be great.”

Watch and listen to Kat Edmonson on Austin City Limits:
