Jason Isbell

Genre: Rock
Similar to: The Black Lillies, Wheeler Brothers

After spending six years with Southern rock band 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 Sirens of the Ditch, a bluesy, punk-infused lesson in guitar tones and Southern swagger.  Backed by a new band dubbed the 400 Unit, Isbell took his songs on the road in 2008. After performing more than 200 shows annually for several years running, Isbell took a breather in 2010 and returned home to the northern Alabama.  The area had been hit hard by the recent economic downturn, prompting Isbell to write a new batch of songs about the war vets, barflies, and out-of-luck characters who populated the area.  The result was Here We Rest, which was released in spring 2011 to critical acclaim.  Isbell next produced an album of haunting atonement and redemption, the sparse and impressive Southeastern, which was released in June of this year.

T. Hardy Morris

Genre: Alternative
Similar to: Jake Bellows, Glossary, Christopher Paul Stelling

Best known as co-founder and member of the psychedelic grunge groups Dead Confederate and Diamond Rugs, T. Hardy Morris has also worked as a solo artist, where his sound is much looser and sparser, a Vic-Chesnutt-like sound that could almost be called outlaw country grunge, for lack of a better term. Audition Tapes, his debut album under his own name (actually, as T. Hardy Morris & the Outfit), recorded at producers Adam Landry and Justin Collins’ Playground Sound Studios in Nashville, was released by Dangerbird Records in the summer of 2013.
