Facebook: Flats and Sharps blur the lines between Bluegrass, Folk and Country, performing classics from the genres and their own highly original songs. These five “incredible young musicians” honed their skills in four years and more than 300 live performances charming and wowing audiences along the way.

From their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds which landed them a four hour gig at a restaurant Lands End. Lands End was just the beginning of the journey for Flats and Sharps and four years on they haven’t stopped writing and performing, adding a fiddle player along the way and building a great following.

Blurb: Highlights include a show for the Governor of Kentucky and US Ambassador to the UK; shows at Jack Wills and Ralph Lauren events; scores of festival appearances at The Isle of Wight, Camp Bestival and many other Bluegrass, Folk, Country and Americana Festivals; and gigs at numerous music venues, arts centres, clubs and corporate events.
Flats and Sharps are writing great songs with universal appeal which are currently being recorded with a producer at a top studio in London for release in 2015.

They performed on the Town Square stage at the Country 2 Country Festival at the O2 in London in March 2015. In review  Alan wrote: A relatively young group, they proved to be not only superb musicians, fine singers and writers of good original material, but also highly entertaining.
With an experienced management team (Guy Morris & Oroh Angiama) in place, 2015 promises to be a breakthrough year for these five talented young men who have their sights set high.
Watch their cover of "Born To Be With You" filmed live at The Green Note, Camden 6th December 2014.
Their new EP ALWAYS THERE released June 15, 2015 showcases their song-writing, vocal and playing talent with the lead track “It’s OK My Love” getting some radio play and the video gaining traction. There are four original songs on the EP as well as a Bluegrass version of the Jesse Fuller song Ninety-Nine Years and One Dark Day.

Jason Isbell
“Hudson Commodore” – “It’s a tough choice because I really did enjoy this album….lovely tracks on here… I thought that was just great” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire 

Home Town: Muscle Shoals, AL

Jason Isbell is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist from Green Hill, Alabama, in Lauderdale County known for his solo career and as a former member of the Drive-By Truckers for 6 years.
After spending six years with the Southern rock outfit, singer/guitarist Isbell left the group in 2007 to pursue a solo career.

Isbell had already honed his songwriting skills during his tenure with the Truckers, and he funneled those talents into Sirens of the Ditch, a bluesy, punk-infused lesson in guitar tones and Southern swagger that marked his solo debut in summer 2007. Backed by a new band dubbed the 400 Unit, Isbell took his songs on the road and soon began penning another album, which he recorded with the 400 Unit in 2008. Released the following year, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit was another step away from his work with Drive-By Truckers, relying as much on sad, melancholic country ballads as the familiar Muscle Shoals sound.
 After performing more than 200 shows annually for several years running, Isbell took a breather in 2010 and returned home to northern Alabama.
Jason has released a solo album every two years since 2007, building his fanbase as he went.
His last album, SOUTHEASTERN (Southeastern Records/Thirty Tigers), released June 11, 2013, provided his Top 200 UK breakthrough, reaching No.136 in 2013. In America Southeastern landed a No.23 on the Billboard 200 with impressive debut sales of 17,521 copies. An album of “haunting atonement and redemption”, the sparse and impressive set  proved to be a smash with critics and a commercial success that introduced Isbell to a new and larger audience, with Isbell and his band touring extensively in support.
He took a further big leap with his stylistically diverse new album SOMETHING MORE THAN FREE, released July 17, 2015 made a debut at No.17 (3,256 sales) on the Official UK Top 100 Album Chart (week ending July 30, 2015).
In America on the Billboard Country Album chart (dated August 8, 2015) it blocked Alan Jackson from landing a #1 as SOMETHING MORE THAN FREE sold 45,800 copies (#6 Billboard 200/ #1 Billboard Country Albums) edging out Jackson's ANGELS AND ALCOHOL (45,500 copies sold; #5 Billboard 200/ #2 Country)

Isbell married the singer-songwriter and violinist Amanda Shires in February 2013, two days after they finished Southeastern and musician Todd Snider married them. The couple are expecting a baby, a girl, in September 2015. Previously Isbell was married to Shonna Tucker in 2002, a fellow musician from the Muscle Shoals, Alabama community, and a former bass player from Drive-By Truckers.
