Jason Isbell had just split from Drive-By Truckers in 2007 when he released his solo debut Sirens Of The Ditch. He was still struggling with substance abuse issues and was 5 years away from his breakthrough album Southeastern, but his talent shined through. No one knew his full potential yet but the album marked the beginning of a new day for both Isbell and the music world. New West will re-release a deluxe edition of the Sirens Of The Ditch July 13th with four new songs including "The Assassin" and "Whisper". 88.5 FM Presents Jason at the Greek Theater later this summer on August 31st.
