Willie Watson
Willie Watson
Willie Watson is a folksinger, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter who was one of the founders of the Old Crow Medicine Show.

Acony Records proudly presents Folksinger Vol. 2, the highly anticipated second solo album from folk artist Willie Watson. Produced by David Rawlings and recorded on analog tape at Woodland Sound Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, the album features eleven songs unearthed from the canon of American folk music and brought to light by Willie’s remarkable voice and wise beyond his years performances. Special guest appearances by the Fairfield Four, Gillian Welch, Morgan Jahnig and Paul Kowert round out the arrangements on this stunning sophomore collection.
Lucette
At once both beautiful and haunting, the chilling power of Lucette's gentle voice is unwavering and undeniable. Although young, it is obvious to all those who listen to her that Lucette is an old and doggedly romantic soul. Full of emotion, her performances take audiences back to the days when artists such as Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Loretta Lynn dominated the airwaves.

The single 'Bobby Reid' off of Lucette's debut album, Black Is the Color, was completed in just one take, capturing the raw and melancholy fluctuations of her effortless and mysterious sound. Teaming up with Blake Judd of Judd Films to shoot the track's music video, Lucette commented, "I feel truly fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work with such amazing people on the 'Bobby Reid' video. Blake Judd (with Judd Films) really believed in the project and believed in bringing the song to life." The video, which features Sturgill Simpson and JD Wilkes, premiered on CMT Pure and CMTEdge.com.

Working with acclaimed producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson, Secret Sisters) Lucette wrote and recorded the full-length album, Black Is the Color, in under a month. The two have collaborated and worked together since she was 19 years old.

2014 saw Lucette taking to the road and touring more than ever before. She's toured or performed with artists such as Nikki Lane, The Secret Sisters, Joe Ely, Jim Lauderdale and Mason Jennings, among others. Lucette most recently toured the US in the fall 2014 as direct support on Sturgill Simpson's nearly sold out tour.

In March 2015, Lucette made her SXSW debut in Austin, TX with 5 performances before joining Mason Jennings on several shows in April and Joe Ely on his tour in May and June. She will also be playing the Calgary Folk Music Festival in July.
