With his Melbourne Recital hall show sold out The Croxton Bandroom are excited to announce that Jason Isbell, along with his stellar band The 400 Unit will play a very special show on Friday April 1st, with very special guest Eilen Jewell.

Released in July, Isbell’s incredible new album Something More Than Free, has simply reinforced what a formidable and respected songwriter Isbell is.

Recorded with producer David Cobb, who was also at the helm of the 2014 award winning album Southeastern, Something More Than Free debuted at #1 on three Billboard charts – Top Rock Album, Country Album & Folk Albums – it has set airplay records around the globe and has critics raving. Rolling Stone Magazine being one: “Jason Isbell is arguably the most revered roots-rock singer-songwriter of his generation.” The Music another: “Alt-country? Americana? Whatever, he’s made another utterly towering record.” And it’s hard to argue.

Isbell, who has toured Australia in the past with Ryan Adams and Justin Townes Earle plus his own headlining tour in 2014, is currently on tour in the United States and recently played four straight sold out shows at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium which serves as a true testament that he has indeed arrived.

Joining Jason Isbell as very special guest at The Croxton will be the queen of the minor key Eilen Jewell and her amazing band. Honesty, confidence, and respect permeate Eilen Jewell’s music, dating back to her self-released Boundary County album in 2006. Since then, the Boise native has recorded five studio albums for Signature Sounds with her road-tested touring band, and two more as a member of the Boston-based gospel-charged Sacred Shakers (also on Signature Sounds), which includes that well-oiled band at its core. Her latest, Sundown Over Ghost Town, is a masterful culmination of Jewell’s work to date.

If you didn’t see Jason Isbell and his band on their last trip down under in 2014 chances are you’ve been regretting it ever since. If that is you: Don’t make the same mistake twice. It is special. It is Jason Isbell.
