Alyson Weeces & The Darling Kathleens: Bio

Alyson Weeces

Alyson is loved best for her personal songwriting, beautiful voice and humorous stage presence. Singing folk-pop ballads over piano, guitar and ukulele; Alyson is entertaining and vibrant. In her personal time, Alyson enjoys wandering Farmers Markets, chatting over coffee, fermenting her own pickles, and lounging in Kiddie Pools. As one reviewer said "She's just a girl with a guitar and a hell of a lot of talent"

The Darling Kathleens

The Darling Kathleens
Alyson's newest project, singing side-by-side with the talented Katie Canavan, as The Darling Kathleens:

The Darling Kathleens are a Los Angeles-based vintage-folk-pop duo, harmonizing over ukulele and accordion. The band sings original songs as well as contemporary and classic covers arranged to fit their vintage sound. Both members of the band, Alyson Kathleen Weeces and Mary (Katie) Kathleen Canavan, sing and play multiple instruments. Performances offer up everything from piano ballads to ukulele covers. Due to both band members having a performance background in theater, as well as Katie’s experience in costume design, the duo frequently appears in unique and (more often than not) matching outfits, to the delight of their audiences. Sequins and fringe complimented by theatrical performances, The Darling Kathleens have been compared to a modern-day The Andrews Sisters with a folk-pop vibe. The Darling Kathleens value community and strive to bring it to their music by curating shows with other local artists and performing shows out of local Los Angeles homes.
