Debut solo album reissue!

Featuring four unreleased songs from the original recording sessions

Southern rock, soul and acoustic singer/songwriter music

"A strong debut, full of the kind of confident, charismatic songwriting that just can't be tought." — Pitchfork

The debut album from accomplished guitarist and songwriter Jason Isbell, formerly of Drive By Truckers (DBT), is reissued with four unreleased tracks from the original recording sessions. The addition of those four extra songs finds Sirens Of The Ditch clocking in at 15 total tracks. Sirens Of The Ditch's mystical quality can be partially attributed to the FAME recording studio (Aretha Franklin, Duane Allman, Otis Redding) in Isbell's hometown of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, where the album was recorded.

Co-produced by Isbell and Patterson Hood (DBT), Sirens Of The Ditch features Isbell singing lead vocals and playing guitar throughout, joined by Shonna Tucker (Formerly of DBT) on Bass and Brad Morgan (DBT) on drums. Several musicians pop in for cameos including Spooner Oldham and David Hood (Patterson s father) on "Down In A Hole", John Neff (Formerly of DBT) on "Dress Blues" and Patterson himself guests on "Shotgun Wedding."

"A lot of old soul musicians came through here in the late '60s and '70s and helped define the Muscle Shoals sound," Isbell, a lifelong Alabamian explains, "so that influence was always in my environment, but on this record I really tried to capture that."
