Let's make this short and sweet.

By now it should be painfully obvious that I'm a sucker for some good indie folk. Hopefully you do too, or else most of the things I talk about are of no use to you.

I stumbled upon this Colorado artist on accident, and I'm really happy that I did. Gregory Alan Isakov reminds me of Rufus Wainwright but with a guitar, or Jeff Tweedy with more banjo, or linkin park but with more rapping... (that's comedy). Awesome folk melodies. Good singing. How can you say "no" to a banjo? I'll be listening to this guy for a while I think. I'll have to go in to his albums, and touring, and all that jazz on another post, because he deserves it.

As always, here is his myspace, however, sadly there is no video yet.
