Norah Jones’ Country Band Plans Debut Album

The Little Willies, a band that includes singer-songwriter Norah Jones, have recorded several country classics for a new album to be released on March 7. The group also features singer-guitarist Richard Julian, bassist Lee Alexander, guitarist Jim Campilongo and drummer Dan Rieser. The musicians have been performing informal shows at the Living Room, a New York club, for about two years. In addition to several original songs, the album will feature covers of Willie Nelson’s “I Gotta Get Drunk” and “Night Life” and the Western swing classic, “Roly Poly.” Released on Milking Bull Records, the project will be distributed by EMI.
