Gregory Alan Isakov’s music video for “Southern Star” is premiering today at Paste. Watch HERE. The live video was filmed and directed by Bryan Dos Reis while Isakov and his band were recently passing through Boston.

The track comes from Isakov’s new album, Evening Machines and is out now on Dualtone Records (stream/purchase here). Isakov wrote “Southern Star” while doing a writing exercise that involved choosing random words from several books (science-fiction and romance novels) he picked up from the dollar bin at his local bookstore.

In continued celebration of the release, Isakov will be embarking on a tour at the end of July that includes a SOLD-OUT headlining show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Aug 4th), with a second show now added at the brand-new Mission Ballroom (Aug 11th).
