Jason Isbell is a gifted songwriter with a direct musical approach.
After parting ways with the Drive-By Truckers in 2007, Jason Isbell’s solo work has been garnering increased attention, receiving three distinctions at last year’s Americana Honors and Awards. While Isbell’s Americana soaked melodies wade into the musical waters between country and rock, his vocal delivery similarly carries both a harsh rasp and a sweet twang. His upcoming album, Something More Than Free, a follow up to the heavy and personal Southeastern, is set to be an assured and celebratory collection of tracks due for release in July. The album’s lead single “24 Frames,” which you can hear below, is a rich ode to loved ones with driving electric guitars and vocal harmonies.
Jason Isbell will be back in Austin to perform at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic at the Austin 360 Amphitheater and you can stream his music right here on KUTX.
