Randy Weeks Band to rock the Treehouse

Los Angeles music scene stalwart Randy Weeks will perform at the Treehouse Café at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1.

California dreams lured Weeks away from his native Minnesota’s winters, and he spent nearly three decades as an integral member of the Los Angeles music scene, which included Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakam, Jim Lauderdale, Rosie Flores and Buddy Miller.

Weeks helped revive country-rock and launch the Americana music movement as a member of the legendary Lonesome Strangers.

In the late 1990s, Weeks struck out on his own, recording four highly celebrated albums.

The first, “Madeline,” is still considered a timeless album. His song, “Can’t Let Go,” became the sole cover and biggest hit on Lucinda Williams’ Grammy winning album, “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road.”

Upon the release of “Going My Way,” The Los Angeles Times named Randy Weeks the “Artist to Watch,” raving “[Weeks] puts together a batch of consistently evocative, witty lyrics that he sings in a distinctively wry Lou Reed-meets-Willie Nelson voice.”

Currently a resident of Austin, Texas, Weeks continues to thrive in the “Live Music Capital of the World” and beyond.

Ever so cooly, Weeks’ songwriting and subject matter spans from the deep and poignant to the light and airy. It’s been said that, “Weeks can take you from crying in your beer to dancing on the bar.”

As an instrumentalist, Weeks’ style effortlessly melds surf rock with folk, Americana with American Pop.
