      John Craigie

      with Shook Twins
      the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg with a vagabond troubadour edge. The StrangerThe record opens with the shanty-like Dylan-meets-Prine number Virgin Guitar, which displays Craigies talent for understated singing coupled with poetic lyrics. The Portland TribuneCraigies latest, I Am California, is haunting, poetic, and just how a longing for California should sound. Draped in nostalgia and covered in memories, Craigie paints a beautiful homage to the Golden State, with the assistance of singer Gregory Alan Isakov. Impose MagazineYou can be sure Ill be on the lookout for anything he does from now on. - No DepressionRenowned for his eloquent Americana style, engaging live shows, and off-the-cuff clever observations, John Craigie carries on the legacy of classic singer-songwriters, while blazing a trail of his own.Recently, that trail twisted and turned into new territory for the Portland, OR performer who The Stranger appropriately dubbed, the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg. His music speaks loud to both audiences and fellow artists. Todd Snider notably hand-delivered a gift on-stage, and Chuck Norris has sent fan mail. His fifth full-length album, No Rain, No Rose boasted two collaborations with Gregory Alan Isakov, namely Highway Blood and I Am California. The latter quickly cracked 200K Spotify streams and counting, as his knack for a captivating narrative and rustic aural palettes powered the 13-track offering together.Its about transparency, he explains. The storytelling enables listeners to relate. Really good music doesnt make you feel good; it makes you feel like youre not alone.As No Rain, No Rose landed, he caught the attention of none other than Jack Johnson. Through a serendipitous series of events, Craigies 2016 live effort Capricorn in Retrograde Just Kidding Live in Portland landed in Johnsons car stereo during a California coastal road trip.Shortly after, Jack reached out and Craigie soon found himself onstage for 12 shows during Johnsons 2017 summer tour including performances at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California and The Gorge in Washington state. Along the way, he earned acclaim from SF Weekly, Seattle Times, AXS, and more. Festival appearances also include Oregon Country Fair, Kate Wolf Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Burning Man, and many others.When Craigie plays, its one of those special shows that can make you laugh and cry in the same song. Its a musical journey that cant be denied.
