Interview: Jason Isbell

Monday 7th April, 2014 4:07PM

Nashville-based musician Jason Isbell was fresh out of rehab for addiction to Jack Danielís and cocaine when he toured New Zealand in 2012 alongside country star Ryan Adams. In fact, it was with the help of Adams and his manager that the former Drive-By-Truckers member managed to face the demons of drink and clean up. Since that sobering journey Isbell has a new record under his belt, titled Southeastern, almost all of which was written after overcoming his addiction. The album deals with some big themes like dependence, cancer and sexual abuse in a beautifully honest way, making it Isbellís most well-received solo effort yet. He spoke to UTR from his Tennessee home about writing sober and his musical roots ahead of his Auckland show this Saturday.
