Gregory Alan Isakov
Singer/songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov's forthcoming album release, This Empty Northern Hemisphere, hits streets on May 19, 2009. The highly anticipated album is Isakov's latest collection of songs in which he conjures the miracles and heartaches of day to day living then transforms them into melodies, with a serious commitment to songcraft and musicianship.

"Writing and performing is a mystery to me," explains the South African born multi-instrumentalist Isakov. "I try to get myself out of the way as much as I can. There were moments while making the new album that were so different than anything I've done before."

Colorado-based Isakov will tour this spring and summer in support of his new release. First up: a KBCO Studio C appearance and a May 15 CD release show at Boulder, Colorado's Fox Theatre. Then, look for him on the road again with Americana artist Brandi Carlile. Carlile makes a guest appearance on This Empty Northern Hemisphere, including a duet performance of Leonard Cohen's "One of Us Cannot Be Wrong."
