Jason Isbell 8.24.18

If you had any doubts about Jason Isbell’s stature in the Americana music scene, just remember he SOLD OUT Bass Concert Hall, one of Austin’s largest concert venues, for 3 consecutive nights. That kind of attention is only usually only reserved for the biggest pop stars. But Jason Isbell is anything but your ordinary singer/songwriter. His ability to approach every song with honest emotion and a clear voice place him securely in that upper echelon of performers. He visited Studio 1A before the 1st night of this 3 show run and delivered the kind of simple, powerful performance that has become his trademark. Listen to his session below to see how he can transform a room with just an acoustic guitar and his voice (and of course 400 Unit guitarist Sadler Vaden).
