Jason Isbell

September 20, 2013 - This week on Conversations from the World Cafe, Jason Isbell joins host David Dye. Jason Isbell knows how to weave an intricate, compelling story into a song. He honed his songwriting first as a member of the Southern rock band Drive By Truckers and now continues to excel, leading his own band the 400 Unit.
With his new disc Southeastern, the longtime Cafe favorite is finally receiving his due with press like The New York Times. Part of the story Isbell tells this time around centers on huge changes in his own life- getting sober and getting married. He joins us today with wife Amanda Shires who also just released a new album, Down Fell the Doves. And She & Him- actress and singer Zooey Deschanel and indie musician M Ward. They are back with Volume 3. Deschanel shares why their work together trumps even her hit TV show The New Girl which just returned for its third season. That and more this week on Conversations from the World Cafe!
