The Lady Crooners
Now based in San Francisco, Tʜᴇ Lᴀᴅʏ Cʀᴏᴏɴᴇʀs have evolved into a full, wonderfully energized five piece group that delivers everything from haunting ballads to boot-stomping pandemonium, featuring Joseph and Nadia along with Bay Area talent: singer-songwriter Andrew Blair, multi-instrumentalist Ross Warner, and bassist Bret Cohune.
With the concept of creating music that lives and breathes, Tʜᴇ Lᴀᴅʏ Cʀᴏᴏɴᴇʀs are prolific songwriters and collaborators. They are known for their awesome live shows, beautiful harmonies, intricate guitar work, and original tunes, which feel like you already have them embedded in your soul. Songs by Tʜᴇ Lᴀᴅʏ Cʀᴏᴏɴᴇʀs are intimate portraits of eternal romantics who love playing and creating music together.
Tʜᴇ Lᴀᴅʏ Cʀᴏᴏɴᴇʀs debuted live on KPIG on April 22, 2012, can be heard on radio KZSC, and are currently at work in the studio recording a second album. They are thrilled to be sharing their signature blend of authentic, darn good music with you, and welcome you along for the ride.
Loretta has blazed trails, having played San Francisco's acclaimed Great American Music Hall and Slim's nightclubs, live radio performances (including twice on NPR's West Coast Live), multiple appearances at England's famed Glastonbury Music Festival, and performances on the second stages at the Sleep Train Pavilion and Shoreline Amphitheatre opening for Alabama. Loretta Lynch appeared on NPR's 'Marketplace' website as one of the "Great Pop Music Artists of Today", and has lassoed a devoted and steadily growing local fan base.
Let this city quintet with the country heart break yours into tiny jagged pieces and lift it up again with the ease of a shot glass. It's a little bit front stoop, a little bit backwoods, it's the art motel on a long stretch of highway…it's Loretta Lynch!
"Loretta Lynch plays the sort of California country-lover's country that has no past, as if it rolled in on a wave one day and set up shop. Buttery vocal harmonies and wary rhythms convey timeless tales about heartbreak, coming home, and growing old that still manage to sound utterly modern."
