Jason Isbell has established himself as one of the most respected and celebrated songwriters of his generation. The North Alabama native possesses an incredible penchant for identifying and articulating some of the deepest, yet simplest, human emotions, and turning them into beautiful poetry through song. Isbell sings of the everyday human condition with thoughtful, heartfelt, and sometimes brutal honesty. Isbell broke through in 2013 with the release of Southeastern. His next two albums, Something More Than Free (2015) and The Nashville Sound (2017), won Grammy Awards for Best Americana Album & Best American Roots Song. Isbell's song "Maybe It's Time" was featured in the 2019 reboot of A Star Is Born.
His most recent full-length album, Reunions (2020), is a critically-acclaimed collection of ten new songs that showcases an artist at the height of his powers and a band fully charged with creativity and confidence. In April of 2021, it was announced that Isbell would appear in the upcoming Martin Scorsese film, Killers of the Flower Moon.
In October 2021, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit released a special new covers album, Georgia Blue. Created to celebrate Georgia’s role in the 2020 election, the record consists of new versions of thirteen songs with ties to the state, including tracks originally recorded by Georgia natives R.E.M., Drivn’ N’ Cryin’, James Brown, Cat Power, Precious Bryant, Otis Redding, The Black Crowes, Indigo Girls, Now It’s Overhead, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Allman Brothers Band and Vic Chesnutt. All proceeds will benefit three non-profit organizations: Black Voters Matter, Fair Fight and Georgia STAND-UP.
Providence’s own Deer Tick is made up of John McCauley, Ian O’Neil, Dennis Ryan, and Christopher Ryan. Formed in 2004, the band has put out nine full length albums and performed at major festivals including Newport Folk.
Beach Road Weekend 2022 will feature two massive stages side-by-side meaning the music will keep going all day, uninterrupted, with an incredible lineup that also includes Caamp, Guster, Dawes, Mt. Joy, Lettuce, Aoife O’Donovan, The War and Treaty, Clem Snide, Sammy Rae & The Friends, The Collection, Bahamas, Shovels & Rope, Brett Dennen, Bully, The National Reserve, Jeremie Albino, Crooked Coast, and Neighbor.
