GREGORY ALAN ISAKOV CONFIRMS FALL TOUR

SOUTHERN STAR” MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERES

EVENING MACHINES OUT NOW TO WIDESPREAD CRITICAL ACCLAIM

Gregory Alan Isakov will continue his extensive touring this fall with over twenty new shows spanning the U.S. The performances kick off October 31 at New Haven’s College Street Music Hall and run through December 15 at Cheyenne’s Cheyenne Civic Center. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, August 16 at 10:00am local time. See below for complete tour details.

The fall tour follows Isakov’s impressive summer schedule, which included a return sold-out headline performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre as well as stops at Newport Folk Fest and the XPoNential Music Festival.

The tour dates celebrate Isakov’s acclaimed new album, Evening Machines, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk Albums chart and is out now on Dualtone Records (stream/purchase here). Watch the official music video for the album track, “Southern StarHERE.

Evening Machinescontinues to receive widespread praise…


“Evening Machines showcases his emotionally evocative songwriting style; rich in narrative detail and beautifully contemplative.” –NPR Music

“…characteristically ruminative…blending a gentle spaciousness with dusky atmospheres and carefully nuanced textures.” –Billboard

“…beautiful collisions of acoustic instruments, Isakov’s soothing vocals and otherworldly noise.”
“…unfolds at a gentle pace…[it] is the sound of befuddlement turned into beauty.” –Rolling Stone

“It’s an album of small intentions with a grand sweep, intimate and boundless at the same time.”
“That simple presentation leaves nothing for Isakov to hide behind. He lets the stripped down nuances of his lyrics and musicianship speak for themselves; the results are deceptively straightforward but immense in their complexity.” –Paste

“…finds the gifted songwriter doing what he does best: painting a landscape in simple language that stirs our most complex emotions.” –Consequence Of Sound

Top Songs of 2018 – “San Luis”
“Ethereal background vocals and production propel the lyrics of Isakov’s ‘San Luis’…Isakov’s half-spoken delivery leaves us wanting to know, and hear, more.” –American Songwriter

“Isakov’s latest is an evocative album, consistently holding a listener’s attention.”
Evening Machines suspends time and space as well as the simultaneous mood of earthiness mixed with that surreal somewhere else. –No Depression


Recorded at a converted barn studio located on Isakov’s three-acre farm in Boulder County, CO, the twelve-track album—via Suitcase Town Music (Isakov’s label) and his first in partnership with Dualtone Records—was self-produced and mixed by Tucker Martine (Neko Case, The Decemberists) and Andrew Berlin (Descendents, Rise Against).

Of the record—his fourth full-length studio album and first in five years—Isakov comments, “I’d work really hard into the night. A lot of times I would find myself in the light of all these VU meters and the tape machine glow, so that’s where the title came from. I recorded mostly at night, when I wasn’t working in the gardens. It doesn't matter if it’s summer or winter, morning or afternoon, this music always feels like evening to me.”

The new album follows Isakov’s acclaimed collaboration with the Colorado Symphony, 2016’s Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony, which featured orchestral versions of twelve of Isakov’s beloved songs. Released to widespread acclaim, NPR Music premiered the official music video for the song, “Liars,” praising, “Stunning imagery…an emotionally charged and poignant musical statement.” Previous to the symphonic album, Isakov released 2013’s The Weatherman, which debuted at #1 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart and received widespread acclaim.

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, raised in Philadelphia, Isakov now calls Colorado home. When he isn’t on the road, he spends much of his time on his farm in Boulder County, which provides produce to local restaurants within the community.
