Johannesburg, South Africa
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and now calling Colorado home, horticulturist-turned-musician Gregory Alan Isakov has cast an impressive presence on the indie-rock and folk worlds. His four full-length studio albums (That Sea, The Gambler; This Empty Northern Hemisphere; The Weatherman; and Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony) were released on his independent record label, Suitcase Town Music. Evening Machines, his fifth and newest album—recently nominated for a Grammy award for Best Folk Album—was released by Suitcase Town Music in partnership with Dualtone Records. Isakov has toured internationally with his band, and has performed with several national symphony orchestras across the United States. He also manages a small farm in Boulder County, which provides produce to over a dozen local restaurants.
