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).
