Folk punk versifier Isaac Graham is proof that the best things start at home. Armed with a Tascam 8-track recorder, an acoustic guitar and an irrepressible DIY ethic, Graham recorded his debut album ‘Empty Vessels’ in the comfort of his lounge-room. The album, a beguiling mix of punk rock rhythms and strong lyrical narratives in the vein of artists such as Billy Bragg, Paul Kelly and Bruce Springsteen, is the culmination of three years spent honing his song-writing skills and gigging relentlessly. In the past two years Graham has shared the stage with an eclectic range of local and international acts including Frank Turner (UK), Tim Barry (US), Jim Ward (US), Elliot Brood (Can), Mental As Anything, The Jezabels, The Rumjacks, Dragon, Carus Thompson, The Strums and Jack Carty. Graham and his newly acquired three-piece band also performed at the 2011 The Sydney Blues and Roots Festival. After winning the hearts and ears of local audiences with his punk-inspired folk songs, the young Sydney-based singer/songwriter caught the attention of international folk/punk legend Frank Turner who featured the track ‘Gold and Steel’ as a B-side on his 7” single ‘Try This At Home’. Graham’s rollicking, country-tinged single ‘Nomads’ was released in late October, 2011. His forthcoming album ‘Glorious Momentum’ is set for release in early 2012.
