More Info: Jason Isbell
Alabama native Jason Isbell is both a product of his Northern Alabama roots and an example of how musical influences can help an artist evolve and mature. Born in Greenhill, Alabama, Isbell is undeniably inspired by the soul-tinged rock, country, and blues produced in neighboring Muscle Shoals. His sound continues to evolve but is equal parts loud and thoughtful, Southern and worldly.
As a lyricist, Jason is willing to tell the difficult stories, whether raw, introspective, messy, or poetic. As an artist, he reveals his own vulnerabilities – his successes and failures – that listeners might find kinship, or perspective. The Wall Street Journal writes, “A composer of splendidly crafted songs, he performs with an intensity that connects the listener to the deep and genuine emotions that inspire his work.” His past albums include Sirens of the Ditch, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Here We Rest, and Live from Alabama. His most recent release, Southeastern, garnered significant critical acclaim. In 2014, Isbell earned three Americana Music Awards, including Artist of the Year, Song of the Year (for “Cover Me Up”), and Album of the Year, for Southeastern.
