Weather Blows In New Gregory Alan Isakov Dates

Gregory Alan Isakov has more ground to cover in his journey to show off his latest album. He recently added a second leg of dates to his U.S. winter tour, extending the outing through early March.

The singer/songwriter, who was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and now calls Colorado home, recorded 2013’s The Weatherman in the mountain town of Nederland, Colo. He spent most of the year and a half recording in solitude.   

“I wanted to make something that felt genuine,” Isakov said. “We recorded everything with analogue gear and mixed it on tape, which gives the songs a raw and vulnerable feeling.”

Earlier this year Esquire featured Isakov’s cover of the Bruce Springsteen tune “Highway 29” in one of its live sessions. Isakov has named Springsteen, along with Leonard Cohen, as influences.

“When you listen to Isakov’s music, it’s instantly clear that he’s got a gift similar to The Boss,” Esquire writes.  “His most recent album, The Weatherman, is straightforward and pure, and manages to reveal the beauty in otherwise “everyday” moments. It’s extremely well-crafted, without the slightest hint of pretentiousness. It’s humble, much in the way Isakov is himself, but full of powerful storytelling.”           

Isakov unveiled the video for The Weatherman track “Amsterdam” in October. Directed by Laura Goldhamer, the video was filmed at Isakov’s farm using stop-motion animation, dioramas, and live shadow puppetry.
