(March 14, 2016) – Acclaimed award-winning artist Jason Isbell has announced tour dates for this summer, including a show at the Embassy Theatre on May 31. Isbell will be touring with his band The 400 Unit, featuring Derry Deborja (Keys), Chad Gamble (drums), Jimbo Hart (bass) and Sadler Vaden (guitar). Tickets are $49.50, $39.50 and $29.50 and go on sale March 18 at ticketmaser.com, charge-by-phone 800.745.3000 and at the Embassy box office.
The tour is in support of the recent release of Something More Than Free, Isbell’s highly anticipated fifth album (Southeastern Records), for which he recently won the Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. Isbell also won the Grammy for Best Americana/Roots Song for 24 Frames, the first single from the album.
Something More Than Free is Isbell’s most sonically diverse album to date. It features Isbell’s Southern inspired vignettes of working class men, women and traditions that permeate 11 new songs of pure honesty and authenticity. Something More Than Free was recorded at the Sound Emporium in Nashville, Tenn., and produced by Dave Cobb, who also produced Isbell’s previous album Southeastern, which went on to sell over 150,000 copies.
