Gregory Alan Isakov
Gregory Alan Isakov
Gregory Alan Isakov is an indie folk artist whose music captures America’s scenic ruralism and working class ethos. His style can be gritty and reminiscent of the tortured desolateness heard from Woody Guthrie, but it can also be reflective and calming like the music of his contemporary Iron and Wine.

Though Isakov was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, he moved to the United States at a very young age and spent the majority of his childhood growing up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He got an early start in the music industry and started touring with a band when he was only 16. Later in his career Isakov moved to Colorado and started producing solo material. He drew inspirations from a diverse range of artists including acclaimed folk artist Leonard Cohen, and heartland rock sensation 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, scheduled to be released June 10, 2016.
Jolie Holland
Jolie Holland
Jolie Holland’s 6th album, Wine Dark Sea, is out now on ANTI- Records. Co-produced by Ms. Holland, Wine Dark Sea exhibits a more aggressive and visceral style than any of her past recorded work. The album features some of New York’s finest experimental musicians combining elements of noise rock, blues, country and free jazz with Jolie’s timeless song craft.

From the pounding riffology of “Dark Days” and “On & On”, to the pastoral swamp noise of “I Thought It Was The Moon” & the title track, to the sublime soul of Joe Tex’s “The Love You Save” and her own “Waiting For the Sun” to the country boogie travelogue, “Route 30” to the soaring tenderness of “All The Love” & “First Sign Of Spring”, the Crazy Horse swagger of "Saint Dymphna" and the barrelhouse stomp of "Palm Wine Drunkard,’ Wine Dark Sea is Jolie Holland at her confident, inimitable best.
