Gregory Alan Isakov is a singer-songwriter. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, he immigrated to the United States as a child,and was raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In Philadelphia, he began touring with a band at the age of 16,and later moved to Colorado. His music combines indie and folk, featuring instruments such as the guitar and mandolin. Isakov has spent his entire life traveling, and as a result, his travels have impacted his songwriting; his songs tell stories of miles and landscapes and the search for a sense of place. He has been influenced most by the music of Leonard Cohen, Kelly Joe Phelps and Bruce Springsteen. Gregory has played at many music festivals held across the United States, Canada and Europe. Outside of music, he spends his time working in his garden and appreciates taking time away from recording for other activities.

      James Christopher Monger: ‘ Warm, weary, wild, and wounded, Gregory Alan Isakov – The Weatherman, the third long-player from Johannesburg, South Africa-born, Philadelphia-raised, and Boulder, Colorado-based singer/songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov, picks up where 2009’s well-received This Empty Northern Hemisphere left off, presenting another stylistically austere yet emotionally charged set of lyrical and melodious indie folk songs that invoke names like José González, Bon Iver, A.A. Bondy, and Josh Ritter. Released on Isakov’s own Suitcase Town Music imprint, highlights include the languid and lush opener “Amsterdam,” the wistful “She Always Takes It Back,” the dreamy “Saint Valentine,” and the impossibly lovely “Suitcase Full of Sparks.”  ‘
