Last year Jason Isbell got his big breakthrough with the album Something More Than Free. It went to sixth place on the US album chart, and both media attention and live audiences grew. With his own blend of country, folk and heartland rock, he tells stories that touch more and more people every year.
Jason Isbell was a member of Drive-By Truckers for several years and contributed guitar, vocals and songwriting on Decoration Day (2003), The Dirty South (2004) and Blessing And A Curse (2006). Straight after the break with the southern rockers in 2007, Isbell started a solo career. With Here We Rest (2011) and Southeastern (2013) he built a following on both sides of the Atlantic, and today he is considered one of the greatest singer/songwriters in americana.
