GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter and musician Gregory Alan Isakov will continue his extensive headline tour through this fall with newly confirmed shows at Chicago’s Chicago Theatre, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium (two nights), Atlanta’s Tabernacle (two nights), Washington DC’s The Anthem, Philadelphia’s Franklin Music Hall, Boston’s Roadrunner (two nights) and New York’s Beacon Theatre among many others.

Tickets for the new shows go on-sale this Friday, April 21 at 10:00am local time. Full details can be found at
Beloved by his devoted community of fans and critics alike, Isakov has released five full-length albums since his debut including his most recent, 2019’s Evening Machines, which was nominated for Best Folk Album at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. Of the album, released in collaboration with Dualtone Records and Isakov’s independent label, Suitcase Town Music, NPR Music praised, “Evening Machines showcases his emotionally evocative songwriting style; rich in narrative detail and beautifully contemplative,” while Billboard asserted, “characteristically ruminative…blending a gentle spaciousness with dusky atmospheres and carefully nuanced textures” and Rolling Stone declared, “beautiful collisions of acoustic instruments, Isakov’s soothing vocals and otherworldly noise.”
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa and raised in Philadelphia, Isakov now calls Colorado home. When he isn’t on the road, he spends much of his time writing and recording songs in his barn studio, as well as running his farm in Boulder County, which provides produce to the farm’s CSA members, local restaurants, and Community Food Share (a Boulder County food bank).
