Cass McCombs

Back in the late ’00s, Cass McCombs befriended Karen Black, the New Hollywood actress known for roles in movies like Easy Rider and Five Easy Pieces. The two began collaborating, with Black singing on a couple McCombs tracks. They were also recording together before Black’s death in 2013. In the past three years, McCombs has been at work completing a project, compiling and co-producing a collection called Dreaming Of You, made up of lost recordings that McCombs and Black’s husband found on old tapes.

Karen Black, the great ’70s New Hollywood actress who starred in movies like Five Easy Pieces, Easy Rider, The Great Gatsby, and Nashville, died of cancer in 2013.
