THE LITTLE WILLIES have reconvened to record For The Good Times, the follow-up to their eponymous 2006 debut, which will be released by EMI’s Milking Bull Records in JANUARY 2012.
THE LITTLE WILLIES LEE ALEXANDER (bass), JIM CAMPILONGO (guitar), NORAH JONES (piano, vocals), RICHARD JULIAN (guitar, vocals) and DAN RIESER (drums) -- first formed in 2003 as an excuse for the five friends to spend a night playing music together at THE LIVING ROOM in NEW YORK. The experience led to recording.
For The Good Times is another stellar collection of country covers from some of the band’s favorite songwriters, including LORETTA LYNN, WILLIE NELSON, JOHNNY CASH, KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, LEFTY FRIZELL and Dolly Parton.
The band will be previewing songs from the new album at a few select shows this fall: THE WORLD CAFE 20TH ANNIVERSARY TRIBUTE CONCERT with JOHN HIATT and the INDIGO GIRLS in PHILADELPHIA on OCTOBER 28th; the WESTHAMPTON PAC in WESTHAMPTON, NY on OCTOBER 29th; and the BELL HOUSE in BROOKLYN on OCTOBER 30th.
