Gregory Alan Isakov // Music Monday 33
I’ve been listening to Gregory Alan Isakov on repeat for the past few months. He’s is amazing! It’s a the quintessential kinda of music I would declare my favorite :: great voice, lots of drippy acoustic guitar, amazing song writing and a good mix of different tempo’ed tunes… just classic singer / song writer action. I listen to LOTS of different kinds of music but this would definitely be my favorite.
(a long list to check out if you’re interested)
It’s why guys like Griffin House, William Fitzsimmons, John Mayer, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Matthew Perryman Jones, John Mark McMillian, Josh Garrels, Ben Rector, Run River North (Monsters Calling Home), The Lighthouse and the Whaler, Bon Iver, James Vincent McMorrow,Ray LaMontagne, Tyrone Wells, City and Colour, The Lumineers, The Avett Brothers, The Brilliance, Alexi Murdoch, David Ramirez, Rouge Wave, Damien, Jack Johnson, Jurado, Cataldo, The Shins, Alpha Rev, Josh Rouse, Ari Hest, Jose Gonzalez, Of Monsters and Men and many many more are on my “liked” page on Spotify. It’s why soundtracks to the following movies are nearly perfect! Garden State, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Away We Go, Into the Wild, Nashville (the TV show), etc.
I love it and Gregory is climbing to the top of that list. Songs like…
Second Chances (maybe my favorite — live video below) Big Black Car (video above but listen to the album version!) Saint Valentine The Stable Song If I Go, I’m Goin Evelyn
… are absolutely captivating! Here are few more videos but jump on Spotify or even better go buy one of his albums. So good!
