It'd be an understatement to say we were pretty excited for Willie Watson's upcoming solo album, Folk Singer Vol. 1. The former OCMS member has been building our anticipation to a fever pitch since he started burning up the LA roots scene with his strikingly strong voice and stripped down, traditionalist tunes.
His Dave Rawlings-produced record doesn't come out til May 6 (Acony Records), but you can pre-order it now via iTunes or Amazon. In the meantime, we'll just keep ourselves busy with this sneak preview: a brand new session on The Sitch and exclusive video premiere of the track "Mexican Cowboy."
