Gregory Alan Isakov’s The Weatherman recently debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Folk chart and #1 on Billboard’s Mountain and Pacific Heatseekers charts (Suitcase Town Music). Furthermore, following a recent feature on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday, the album reached #1 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart. The album also continues to receive widespread critical praise—The New York Times featured an exclusive full album stream of the album, while Denver Westword proclaims, “Bob Dylan once sang, ‘You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows,’ and you don’t need to be a singer-songwriter to realize that Isakov has created something truly stunning here.” In celebration of the release, Isakov is currently in the midst of a North American tour, including a very special performance with the Colorado Symphony on November 8. See below for complete details.
The Weatherman is Isakov’s third full-length release and follows 2009’s This Empty Northern Hemisphere, which the Denver Post praised as “an artistic masterwork” and Paste Magazine described as “quietly lush” and “deeply vibrant.”
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and now calling Colorado home, Isakov is a lifelong traveler. In the past year, other musicians Isakov has performed alongside include Blind Pilot, Brandi Carlile, The Lumineers and Ani DiFranco. With a degree in horticulture, Isakov balances the art of making and exhibiting his music with the art of gardening and connecting to the land.
