    Gregory Alan Isakov

    Country

    “[Isakov] churns up his own musical atmosphere, ruled by the moon and the sea, at least aesthetically if not always lyrically. That he can do the same thing alone onstage...is remarkable.” - NO DEPRESSION

    “…Isakov’s presence [is] delicately hypnotic, proving folk music can be electric and impassioned without that virulent Mumford strum.” - ROLLING STONE

    “...an eloquent lyricist who delivers soul searching ruminations filled with cosmic pondering, nomadic wisdom and plenty of earthy metaphors. His understated voice has a hushed force akin to that of Jose Gonzalez’s and, at its best, the alluring comfort of Paul Simon’s.” - THE WASHINGTON POST

    Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and calling Colorado home, Gregory Alan Isakov has been traveling all his life. Songs that hone a masterful quality tell a story of miles and landscapes, and the search for a sense of place. His song-craft lends to deep lyrical masterpieces, with hints of his influences, Leonard Cohen and 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.

    Spoken Word

    Andrea Gibson is not gentle with their truths. It is this raw fearlessness that has led them tothe forefront of the spoken word movement– the first winner of the Women’s World PoetrySlam –Gibson has headlined prestigious performance venues coast to coast with powerfulreadings on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love, and spirituality.
    Their work has been featured on the BBC, Air America, C-SPAN, Free Speech TV and in2010 was read by a state representative in lieu of morning prayer at the Utah StateLegislature.
    Now, on their fifth full-length album FLOWER BOY and her second book THE MADNESSVASE, Gibson’s poems continue to be a rally cry for action and a welcome mat at the door ofthe heart’s most compassionate room.
    In their most recent book, PANSY Gibson balances themes of love, gender, politics,sexuality, illness, family and forgiveness with stunning imagery and a fierce willingness todelve into the exploration of what it means to truly heal. Each turn of the page representsboth that which as been forgotten and that which is yet to be released. While this book is arally cry for political action, it is also a celebration of wonder and longing and love.
    “Gibson is among the nation’s most admired and emulated poets. [Their] verse is at oncepersonal and political, feminist and universal, filled with incinerating verbs and metaphor,and delivered with gut punching urgency.”  — Metaphor Media
