THE WALCOTTS -Emerging Nine-Piece L.A. Ensemble- Premiere “Spanish Moon”

Americana-rock ensemble THE WALCOTTS partnered with PUREVOLUME.COM yesterday to premiere their cover of Little Feat’s “Spanish Moon.” The song–co-produced by Ross Hogarth (John Mellencamp, Keb Mo and Jackie Greene) and commissioned by Luke George, son of Lowell George – features special guest Rami Jaffee (keyboardist for the Foo Fighters and founding member/keyboardist of The Wallfowers) and captures the funky vibe of the original while bringing new life to the song. You can listen to the song via SoundCloud here.
“Listening to ‘Spanish Moon’ by The Walcotts brings a huge smile to my face,” says Bill Payne (Keyboardist/Founding Member of Little Feat). “It is humbling to hear another band salute the legacy of Little Feat in such fine fashion. Thank you for honoring Little Feat and Lowell’s great song ‘Spanish Moon!'”
THE WALCOTTS’ vocalist and guitarist Tom Cusimano tells, “We as a band have always been huge fans of Little Feat. Their musicality, their storytelling and legendary live sound has influenced a lot of us individually before we even formed The Walcotts. Collectively, we as a band are now influenced by their music as well. We often cite their unique rhythms or song structures as direct influences.”
