With a lineup of songs that span the blues genre, Brandon Isaak is set to stun audiences once again with the release of his new album, One Step Closer, on September 22.

Throughout the album, Isaak explores classic iterations of the blues with the occasional modern twist. The record flirts with a vintage, New Orleans sound and incorporates an array of old-time instruments, from fiddle and banjo to washboard and lap steel.

Through his collaborations with masterful veteran musicians like David Vest, Al Pease, Darryl Havers, and others, Isaak creates a rich, timeless culmination of sounds, styles, and themes with the power to transport the listener to the French Quarter and beyond.

“It was such an honour to work with these veteran master musicians and I could not be more happy with the final outcome of the recording,” Isaak said.

The first single from the album, “House Bound Blues,” will also release on September 22. The single highlights Isaak’s skillful songwriting and intentionally crafted lyrics: Take it easy, we'll see this through Everybody talkin' bout the dyin' flu Don’t you worry, we'll be fine Dim the lights, and open up the wine

The album’s themes and lyrics range from lost love and positive thinking to spirituals and “down and out” subject matter. “I always try to write from the heart, no matter if I’m writing about hard times, funny situations or singing about the spirit,” said Isaak.  

One Step Closer spotlights the best of Isaak: the Yukon-born artist is known for his preeminent songwriting skills and his mastery of multiple instruments, from guitar to banjo to harmonica and more. The new record pulls these elements together into an authentic, emotional journey bolstered by raw musical talent and an expert command of the blues.
