Reissued 2018, originally released 2012

The debut album from accomplished guitarist and songwriter JASON ISBELL, formerly of DRIVE BY TRUCKERS (DBT), is reissued with 4 unreleased tracks from the original recording sessions. The addition of those 4 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, AL 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".
