Sara Watkins Nurtures Nostalgia in “You and Me”

Sara Watkins lingers in a citrus orchard savoring a sweet memory for part of her latest video, “You and Me.” The song comes from the former Nickel Creek member’s second solo album Sun Midnight Sun and features a gentle pop melody paired with Watkins’ breathy, restless vocals. Her brother Sean Watkins (also a former member of Nickel Creek along with Chris Thile) contributes acoustic guitar and backup vocals. It appears they’ve taken the audio from a live performance instead of her record. That’s a bit unusual yet well-suited to this veteran performer’s talents.
