Gregory Alan Isakov, a singer/songwriter based in Colorado, is known for his hushed, yet powerful vocals, and his songs are about noticing beauty in normal, everyday life. He has been putting out albums and EPs for the last 10 years, and his most recent album, The Weatherman, has been critically lauded, debuting at #5 on Billboard’s folk chart and peaking at #1 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart. According to Isakov, the idea behind the album is that every day, the weatherman tells us what will happen in the future, and nobody cares: “a daily mundane miracle”. The new album was recorded in a cabin studio in a small town in Colorado, and he recorded everything with analogue gear and mixed it on tape for a more genuine and raw sound.
