Hometown: Green Hill, Alabama
Member(s): Jason Isbell (vocals, guitar, keys)

Relative to: The Felice Brothers, Deep Dark Woods
Genre: country, folk

For when you’re: staring down a whiskey bottle, committing to a change

Release(s): Sirens of the Ditch, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, Here We Rest, Southeastern
Highlight Track(s): Cover Me Up, Flying Over Water, Live Oak
Highlight Lyric: “I quit talking to myself/ Listening to the radio/ Long, long time ago/ Damn near strangled by my appetite/ Ybor City on a Friday night/ Couldn’t even stand up right” from Traveling Alone

Highlight Review: “Different textures. Different directions. Different days. Southeastern is a harbinger of all three, sporting a 47-minute track list that covers the expected bases – heartland rock and roll, soft-spoken folk, blue collar boogie, Alabama country-soul – while shining a brighter light on the changes in Isbell’s life. It’s an album about reflection and redemption, about carrying the weight of your past while you move forward.” – read more at American Songwriter
