“I love the the spaciousness in the songs of Leif Vollebekk. His songs are at one moment comfortable but there are lovely unexpected moments. He has a way with phrasing that was poignant, poetic, soulful and thoughtful. Please welcome him to Newport Folk 2014.”
– Bob Boilen

Jason Isbell tells Terry Gross about his parents’ views on him being a musician:

My dad, he worries a bit, usually with good reason. There were quite a few years there where he was probably trying to resign himself to fact that I wouldn’t live too much longer, just because of the way I was living. … There was a moment for Dad where he realized it was going to work out as a career and he called me, he pulled over on the side of the road in his truck, this is probably 8 or 9 years ago. He was listening to demos from my first solo record; he pulled over on the side of the road on his way to work and called me and said, ‘Well, son, I don’t think you’re going to need a backup plan. I think you can go ahead and do this. I just wanted to tell you that.’ Which is a big deal for my father. It was always, ‘Have something to fall back on.’
