Album News: Sara Watkins – Self-titled

Great news for Nickel creek fans. The third one (the one who has to use the toilet marked ‘Ladies’) is releasing a solo album.

Sara Watkins’ self-titled debut will be released on April 7th, 2009 in the US on Nonesuch Records.

Sara Watkins features a wide range of colleagues and old friends, including alt-country duo Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench, Elvis Costello drummer Pete Thomas; colleagues from the bluegrass world like Tim O’Brien, Punch Brothers’ Chris Eldridge, Ronnie McCoury, and Rayna Gellert; and her Nickel Creek bandmates Chris Thile and Sean Watkins.

She co-wrote 8 of the songs on the album, and one of the others is a cover of a Jon Brion tune. And you know how much I love Jon Brion!
