Gregory Alan Isakov Release New Music Video

The official music video for Gregory Alan Isakov’s “Liars” premiered yesterday at NPR Music and can now be viewed/shared via YouTube. Of the video, NPR Music’s Bob Boilen praises, “Stunning imagery and a symphony of sound make this Gregory Alan Isakov video an emotionally charged and poignant musical statement.”

The song is from Isakov’s new full-length album, Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony, which will be released June 10 on Suitcase Town Music. A collaboration with the Colorado Symphony, the eleven-track record features songs from Isakov’s previous albums, The Weatherman, This Empty Northern Hemisphere, and That Sea, the Gambler, as well as “Liars,” which was written by Ron Scott.

In celebration of the release, Isakov will embark on an extensive orchestral tour this spring and summer, including performances with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Vermont Symphony Orchestra and the The Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, as well as a special date at D.C.’s The Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra on June 25. The remaining club shows, which include stops in Chicago, Boston, New York City, and Nashville, among others, will feature Isakov and his band—Jeb Bows (fiddle), Philip Parker (cello), Steve Varney (electric guitar/banjo), John Grigsby (upright bass), and Max Barcelow (drums)—along with The Ghost Orchestra from Colorado (a symphonic ensemble featuring brass and string players, that includes members of the Colorado Symphony). Additionally, Isakov will make his headline debut at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre on September 4 with special guests Ani DiFranco and Shook Twins. See below for complete tour details.

Recorded at Boettcher Concert Hall in Denver, as well as at Starling Farm in Boulder, Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony was co-produced by Isakov and his longtime collaborator, Jamie Mefford, and was arranged by Tom Hagerman (DeVotchKa) and Jay Clifford (Jump Little Children), and conducted by the Colorado Symphony’s Scott O’Neil. Since his debut with the CSO in November 2013, Isakov has gone on to perform with them at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, as well as with the Seattle Symphony and the Oregon Symphony Orchestra.
