Portland-based songwriter and producer John Craigie crafts moments of loneliness into stories that fit perfectly into old americana fiction anthologies. But instead of writing them down on pages, he turns them into simmering soul and folk. On his latest album from 2022, 'Mermaid Salt', he takes us into tales of revenge, the escape of a mermaid and falling asleep under a meteor shower. Well! Craigie wrote the album in the solitude of the lockdown. And you can hear that. According to Rolling Stone, 'Craigie bridges a 1960s and 1970s songwriter atmosphere with the laid-back coolness of Jack Johnson.'
John Craigie is playing at Trix on 7th of October.
