After spending six years with Southern rock outfit Drive-By Truckers, singer/guitarist Jason Isbell left the group in 2007 to pursue a solo career. Isbell had already honed his songwriting skills during his tenure with the Truckers, and he funneled those talents into his debut solo outing, Sirens of the Ditch. Released the following year, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit was another step away from his work with Drive-By Truckers, relying as much on sad, melancholic country ballads as the familiar Muscle Shoals sound. Here We Rest was released in spring 2011 to critical acclaim. Isbell next produced an album of haunting atonement and redemption, the sparse and impressive Southeastern. The stylistically diverse Something More Than Free was released in July 2015. ~ James Christopher Monger
