Jason Isbell

Ticketing details below.

Press Release:

After spending six years with Drive-By Truckers, singer/guitarist Jason Isbell left the group in 2007 to pursue a solo career. Last seen in New Zealand supporting Ryan Adams in 2012, (the same year he won an Americana Award for Song of the Year), he will return in 2014 with his full band, a brilliant new album under his arm and new songs to play in the intimate surrounds of The Tuning Fork.

Isbell will bring a swag of material to the stage as he rolls through his catalogue of songs from Sirens of the Ditch (2007), Jason Isbell, The 400 Unit (2009), Here We Rest (2011) and the new album Southeastern. Recorded with producer David Cobb (Shooter Jennings, Jamey Johnson, Secret Sisters, George Jones) Southeastern has garnered Isbell the best reviews of his career, and featured on many critic’s and websites lists of Top Albums of 2013. Said noted US critic Ken Tucker: “No music moved me more, did more to make me think about life a bit differently, than Jason Isbell's continually revelatory album Southeastern. It cohered as a statement about love, regret, loneliness and joy, and also about what it's like to make vernacular music concerning these themes. It was self-conscious without being self-absorbed.” The album ranked #4 on Amazon’s list of Best Albums of 2013, named #1 Top Played album by the Americana Association and was rated as American Songwriter’s #1 Album of the Year.

The reviews say it all. It's an album, and a show, not to be missed.
