Isaac Gillespie and Morgan Heringer (Big Tree, the Due Diligence) phone it from the West Village in Manhattan, NY. A fave of other Phoning It In faves- Shakey Graves, Brook Pridemore, and the Shivers- we knew we couldn't go wrong.

Isaac describes his last album thusly:

"What would happen if Arlo Guthrie and the Band had a baby that then hung out with James Taylor and listened to a lot of Old Crow Medicine Show and sometimes rode the bus with Don DiLego while playing Nashville Skyline on its iPod?"

What, no Jackson Brown? No Boz Scaggs or JJ Cale, huh? Well, no matter who you reference, Isaac combines the absolute best of the 70s country/folk singer-songwriter crop with the contemporary and incredibly fertile Sidewalk Cafe country/folk singer-songwriter explosion.

So, we proudly present to you a new favorite, Mr. Isaac Gillespie.
