The Lady Crooners
The Lady Crooners is a folk / pop / ’almost country‘ band from San Francisco, CA, fronted by siblings Nadia, Joseph, and Megan Krilanovich, with Kevin Conness, Jason Braatz, and John Smart. The six piece group features three part harmonies, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, and percussion/mandolin. The band is about bringing together family and friends, and sharing authentic darn good music. The Lady Crooners give every performance their all and always leave a crowd wanting more.
The Lady Crooners formed in 2010 as a collaboration of siblings, Nadia and Joseph Krilanovich. Songwriting was a natural fit for the duo, him with a guitar, her with a love of storytelling, and both wanting to create something good. Adding little sister Megan, bassist Jason Braatz, lead-guitarist Kevin Conness, and producer/engineer John Smart on percussion/mandolin launched The Lady Crooners into their signature raucous, sophisticated, down-home act. Harnessed by Nadia’s honest voice and a perfect complement of sibling harmonies, the 2013 release of catchy new single, SWEETHEART, says it all. The Lady Crooners are here to share their authentic, darn good music with you.
The Lady Crooners perform throughout the Bay Area, the West Coast, and beyond. They have released two albums, THE LADY CROONERS (2012) and THE SURFACE (2013) and are currently at work on a third album.

As with many sibling groups, harmony vocals are at the fore and the arrangements, and their overall approach to their musical craft, draws comparison to Gillian Welch, Emily Barker and the Civil Wars.
