Jahfin Posted December 5, 2007 Share Posted December 5, 2007 Fred Mills With his Sirens of the Ditch (New West) solo debut landing Top Ten honors in HARP’s annual “50 Best CDs of the Year” feature, Jason Isbell is riding high. Throughout 2007 he toured steadily with his band the 400 Unit, selling out shows in NYC, Raleigh, Atlanta, Toronto, San Francisco, Denver and Austin. Isbell & Co. played the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, Hardly Strictly in San Francisco and toured the country with both Son Volt and Cracker. Isbell continues his success on the road with a winter tour, presented by HARP -- this time teaming up with Will Hoge in a co-headlining cross-country trek. In addition, Isbell is playing two nights of the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam in Asheville, NC (one with The 400 Unit and one solo). He has also secured a coveted spot during the opening night of the New York Guitar Festival “Royal Albert Hall Project” honoring Bob Dylan. Meanwhile, in late January, Isbell will release a live EP recorded on November 16 at Twist & Shout Records in Denver, CO. This will be the first proper release from Isbell with The 400 Unit. The EP will be available exclusively at all Coalition of Independent Music Retailers. Will Hoge, for his part, has been busy with a heavy roadwork schedule as well. His latest album, Draw The Curtains (Rykodisc) has been notching kudos left and right—HARP called him “a lot like rock ‘n’ roll: a little bit more than the sum of his influences, equal part Nashville and Asbury Park”—and he’s currently in the middle of a tour supporting it. He’s also got a live record available now, recorded in September at the Exit/In in Nashville, titled Again Somewhere Tomorrow. (You can buy it direct at WillHoge.com.) Watch for him to be on the road will into 2008, but meanwhile, don’t miss the Isbell-Hoge summit. It’s gonna be a good ‘un.
