    Sadler Vaden

    Pop

    Acclaimed solo artist. Songwriter. Grammy-winning member of Jason Isbell and the

    400 Unit. Producer. Studio musician. Modern-day guitar hero. A professional musician

    since the age of 18, Sadler Vaden has spent the better part of two decades on stage,

    on the road, and in the recording studio, lending his unique rock & roll approach to

    highly-revered bands, up-and-coming acts, and solo albums like his forthcoming

    Anybody Out There?

    The full-length follow-up to his 2016 debut, Anybody Out There? mixes the hook-savvy

    sweep of Vaden's songwriting with the supersized stomp of his electric guitar. It's a

    modern record that doesn't ignore the past, balancing frequent nods to Vaden's

    20th-century influences — including Neil Young, The Who, Tom Petty, Joe Walsh, and

    Oasis — with a contemporary sound that mixes raw, live performances with digital

    recording technology. Self-produced by Vaden, engineered by longtime collaborator

    (and multi-platinum producer) Paul Ebersold, and mastered by Grammy Award-winner

    Richard Dodd, Anybody Out There? is Sadler Vaden at his most adventurous, stocked

    with melody-driven songs that deal with the challenges of creating a true human

    connection in a modern, technology-obsessed world.

    Raised in North Myrtle Beach and the outskirts of Charleston, SC, Vaden began

    playing gigs as a teenager, serving as the frontman of a locally-beloved rock & roll

    power trio named Leslie. The band shared shows with headliners like Drivin’ N Cryin’

    and Jason Isbell, both of whom later recruited Vaden to join their own lineups. During

    his time with Drivin’ N Cryin’, he produced the band's series of Songs… EPs while also

    playing lead guitar on crowd favorites like "Fly Me Courageous" and "Straight to Hell."

    He left the group for Isbell's band in 2013, shortly before Isbell's career-shifting album

    Southeastern hit stores, and has remained an integral member of the group ever since,

    lending his vocal harmonies and song-serving guitar fretwork to Grammy-winning

    albums like Something More Than Free and The Nashville Sound along the way.

    Meanwhile, he has also continued releasing his own material, including his 2016

    self-titled debut full-length and standalone singles like "Monster," the latter of which

    was hailed by Rolling Stone as a "T. Rex-evoking jam [that] doubles as a commentary

    on the U.S.'s negative political and social climate."

    Vaden's diverse career continues with Anybody Out There? The title track mixes

    drummer Fred Eltringham's percussive thunder with a monster guitar riff co-written

    alongside Audley Freed, while "Next To You" is a highway-bound road song that nods

    to the Heartbreakers' heartland rock. The guitar tones and communal themes of Aaron

    Lee Tasjan co-write "Peace + Harmony" channel George Harrison, and the nostalgic

    "Modern Times" makes room for swirling Mellotron, acoustic guitar, and claves. The

    album culminates with "Tried and True," a guitar-heavy love letter to rock & roll music

    that concludes Anybody Out There? on an anthemic note.

    "It's always been there for me, through the good and bad," Sadler Vaden says of the

    rock & roll genre, whose uplift and epic punch first convinced him to pick up the guitar

    as a 10-year-old. Years later, he's proudly carrying the torch, nodding to the rock & roll

    music that came before him while crafting some contemporary classics of his own.
