Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Gregory Alan Isakov is nominated for Best Folk Album at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards for his acclaimed album, Evening Machines (Suitcase Town Music/Dualtone Records).

Recorded at a converted barn studio located on Isakov’s three-acre farm in Boulder County, CO, the twelve-track album was self-produced by Isakov, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums chart and continues to receive widespread critical acclaim…

In celebration of the release, Isakov will continue to tour through the end of the. year including upcoming shows at Aspen’s Belly Up, Park City’s Park City Live, Las Vegas’ Brooklyn Bowl, Albuquerque’s El Rey Theater and Cheyenne’s Cheyenne Civic Center among many others. See below for complete details.

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.
