Jason Isbell

After six years with the Southern rock outfit the Drive-By Truckers, singer and guitarist Jason Isbell left the group in 2007 to pursue a solo career, becoming one of the most successful and respected figures in the alt-country and singer/songwriter communities. While full of Southern grit, Isbell’s songs also show off an introspective side and a gift for nuanced storytelling. His early solo efforts boasted a raw, rootsy flavor, and after coming to terms with a dependence on alcohol and drugs, Isbell’s songwriting gained greater depth, his albums were stronger, and his work won increased recognition from the listening public. Isbell’s first solo album, 2007’s Sirens of the Ditch, was a bluesy, punk-infused lesson in guitar tones and Southern swagger, while 2013’s Southeastern, his first album after getting sober, was a major critical and commercial breakthrough, and 2021’s Georgia Blue saw him honoring artists from the state of Georgia.
