Jason Isbell on WTF With Marc Maron

“I had to write things that scared the shit out of me… I won’t take something out because it scare’s me to put it in, I think that’s bullshit, that’s lying to people… You build an audience that way that’s very similar.”

Jason Isbell and Marc Maron from WTF With Marc Maron

Jason Isbell played at Red Butte this past Tuesday. While I’ve seen him with the Drive-by Truckers a couple of times, this was the first time I’ve seen his solo show. The DBT’s have always blew me away in concert, but Jason’s musicianship and craft as a solo performer was truly outstanding. Afterwards I stumbled across his interview with Marc Maron, and their brief discourse on building an audience through vulnerability really resonated with me.
