"The resulting form is a beautiful languid sound that is reminiscent of the more poppy moments of Yo La Tengo, the spacious Krautrock elements of CAN, and the finesse of The Sea & Cake." -Thedropp
"Taking inspiration from the tribal-like percussion of Washed Out and the echo-laden vocals of Neon Indian, National Seashore is an epic first outing. Gloriously addictive and vibrant in texture." - Crack in the Road
"In just a matter of a few short months, Isles is already making waves, generating music that is proving to be an essential listen." - Inweekly

Singer/ Songwriter Jonni Greth spent years traveling the Eastern United States-playing music in every town he visited- before arriving in Nashville. His style, which runs the gamut from spooky alt-country to lush, string-heavy Americana, revolves around his earthy fingerpicking style and warm, philanthropic melody lines. Greth draws inspiration from old hymnals, and from songwriting greats such as John Prine, Leonard Cohen, and Bill Mallonee.
At age six, Greth’s father used the family’s tax return money to buy his son a ¾ sized Gremlin acoustic guitar. A childhood hobby grew into a lifestyle as the young songwriter honed his craft at shows around the United States and overseas. His showcases included the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell, Illinois.
Working the festival and independent folk circuits enabled Greth to connect with many other creative forces, such as bluesman Glenn Kaiser, who he lived with and worked beside for years. He has also collaborated with experimental folk artist Bill Tucker, and jazz singer/songwriter Ami Moss, who have both recorded Greth’s songs. His religious imagery and roughly-hewn lyrics also inspired author Nick May to write his underground novella Megabelt.
“Get his album,” said May, “Maybe you’ll write a book.”
