Renowned 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 500K Spotify
streams and counting, as his knack for a captivating narrative and rustic
aural palettes powered the 13-track offering together.

"It's about transparency," he explains. "The storytelling enables listeners
to relate. Really good music doesn't make you feel good; it makes you feel
like you're not alone."

As No Rain, No Rose landed, he caught the attention of none other than Jack
Johnson. Through a serendipitous series of events, Craigie's 2016 live
effort Capricorn in Retrograde… Just Kidding… Live in Portland landed in
Johnson's car stereo during a California coastal road trip.

Shortly after, Jack reached out and Craigie soon found himself onstage for
12 shows during Johnson's 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, it's one of those special shows that can make you laugh
and cry in the same song. It's a musical journey that can't be denied.

"…the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg with a vagabond troubadour
edge." – The Stranger

"The record opens with the shanty-like Dylan-meets-Prine number "Virgin
Guitar," which displays Craigie's talent for understated singing coupled
with poetic lyrics." – The Portland Tribune

"Craigie's 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 Magazine

"You can be sure I'll be on the lookout for anything he does from now on."
- No Depression
