Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and now calling Colorado his home, GREGORY ALAN ISAKOV been a travelling minstrel all his life.
Thus, his sharp songs possess a masterful quality that tell stories of miles and landscapes … the search for a sense of place.
ISAKOV’S song-craft lends to deeply lyrical masterpieces, with hints of his influences, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen.
He has been described as “strong, subtle, a lyrical genius.”
Isakov has just completed an album of his songs played in collaboration with The Colorado Symphony and released this month.
We listened to Master & a Hound
The voice eases out of the golden instrumentation with simple quality and comfortable richness.
Clever fingerpicking and a remarkably pleasing arrangement makes this a sincerely princely piece.
