Willie Watson's debut solo album Folk Singer, Vol. 1 will be released on May 6, 2014. The album was produced by the legendary David Rawlings, longtime friend and producer of Watson's previous band, Old Crow Medicine Show.
"There's a lot of weight in the way Willie performs," says Rawlings. "He's had some tragedy in his life, which has informed his art. There's an emotional edge to what he does because of who he is as a human being. Willie is the only one of his generation who can make me forget these songs were ever sung before."
The album features ten songs ranging from folk standards to obscure gems.
