Just as their first song was fading to a close, Mandolin Orange's Emily Frantz looked at the sold out Ogden Theatre and said, "I knew there were going to be 1600 of you here tonight, I just didn't know you were all going to be listening."

For Gregory Alan Isakov, everything is personal and none of it is private

Steeped in sincerity and spilling tiny autobiographies, Gregory Alan Isakov isn’t so different in person than he is on record.
