This Empty Northern Hemisphere is singer-songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov’s second official release (this excludes a 2003 and a 2005 release which he does not list in his discography). Retaining the honest, narrative, and introspective writing style of 2007’s That Sea, The Gambler, This Empty Northern Hemisphere sees Isakov weaving more lush soundscapes. Strings and ambient slide guitar help to create more expansive backdrops for lyrics which give away snatches of Isakov’s rich and nomadic life story

With influences as diverse as Leonard Cohen, Mark Kozelek and Leadbelly, Colorado’s Gregory Alan Isakov has been making a name for himself the last few years in both singer/songwriter and indie-folk circles. Hooking up with Brandi Carlile for a 2009 tour and gracing his fourth album with her presence, Isakov seems to be making a move to push his career to the next level. The songs here deserve a wider audience (not that his earlier work didn’t!), as they radiate more emphatically, and linger a little longer when the last track ends.
