Tell me more: Robert Rex Waller Jr. (the frontman of Americana collective I See Hawks in L.A.) and Carla Olson (the Textones) have been collaborating on stage and in the studio for years. On Waller’s upcoming See The Big Man Cry the acclaimed artist revisits classic tracks from the far-flung likes of Bobby Rydell, Bruce Springsteen, Charlie Louvinand Gene Clark on the ambitious Olson-produced 13-track project. Olson and Waller assembled an all-star cast of Los Angeles’ finest America players to work on the recordings, including Olson (guitar, harmony vocals), John York (12 string guitar), Benjamin Lecourt (drums), Skip Edwards (piano) and many others. See The Big Man Cry will be released on Oct. 20. Information: robertrexwallerjr.com.
