Bluegrass Underground

Gregory Alan Isakov

Season 9, Episode 7 of 12

This native of South Africa who as a child moved to the U.S. is now a fiercely independent, DIY musician based in Boulder, CO. Influenced from a young age by Leonard Cohen, Kelly Joe Phelps and Bruce Springsteen, Isakov strikes that "balance of space and instrumentation," with lush flourishes-twirling strings, a loping banjo, ghostly pedal steel, solid yet restrained percussion. Precise arrangements with poignant and even devastating lyrics encourage a close listen and contemplation.
