Jason Isbell Biography
In addition to being a gifted songwriter, the Alabama-born Jason Isbell is regarded as an exceptional guitar player. With a style strongly tied to the alt-country genre, Isbell manages to throw in hints of rock and blues that add spice to his profound lyrics and keep fans consistently attentive. Isbell's musical career launched in 2001 when he joined the Georgia-based Drive By Truckers. After six years together, Isbell parted ways with the band and began recording on his own. His debut solo record Sirens of the Ditch was released in 2007 and was soon followed by his second album Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit in 2009 when Isbell acquired a backing band of the same name. Isbell's latest release Southeastern is a 12-track LP that features the vocal and violin talents of his wife Amanda Shires. Released in mid-June 2013, Southeastern is evidence of a dedicated songwriter intent on tackling life's hardships and coming out on top.
