The Weatherman

From the biography at

To me, the idea of a weatherman is really powerful. There’s a guy on television or on the radio telling us the future, and nobody cares. It’s this daily mundane miracle, and I think the songs I chose are about noticing the beauty in normal, everyday life.

We first discovered Gregory Alan Isakov when his music was featured as the background track for a McDonald’s commercial several years ago. After just a few listens I am very much enjoying his latest album, The Weatherman. You can stream the album from the New York Times.
