Jason Isbell And The 400 Unit In Concert

After six successful years of recording and performing with Drive-By Truckers, guitarist and songwriter Jason Isbell left the band in 2007 to explore his own musical identity. He released his first solo album, Sirens of the Ditch, later that year, revealing a softer Southern blues sound that's still informed by country-rock. Click the link above to hear Isbell and his band The 400 Unit perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

His new album, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, finds him completing his transformation from supporting player to frontman. A warm and gritty country-soul album, the disc showcases Isbell's confident songwriting while referencing vintage soul and country.
