South African Indie: Gregory Alan Isakov
May 18, 2011 § Leave a comment
Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Gregory Alan Isakov is an indie folk artist based in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. His songs are full of folk instruments mirroring those used by the popular band of the same genre, Mumford & Sons, but his lyricism is what really puts him over the top. Artists Isakov is most closely compared to include Damien Rice, Leonard Cohen, and the aforementioned Mumford & Sons. His most recent album titled This Empty Northern Hemisphere was released in 2009. Check out a few of my favorites from it below and if you like them, get the whole album here.
