Yes, John Craigie is back! And the Hum is back, for what it’s worth…
John p.r. people tell me, “Modern-day troubadour/singer-songwriter John Craigie will be performing at the Arcata Theatre Lounge on November 10th & 11th in a long-awaited celebration of his latest album, Asterisk The Universe which was released back in 2020. For ticket information go here.
Known for his engaging live shows, Craigie is finally back out on the road combining his signature wry wit and clever observations with an earthy mix of soul, folk and rock…as well as a few laughs in between.
Craigie will be performing songs from his album, Asterisk The Universe, a record that showcased his storytelling prowess by exploring what it all means to live in the 21st century. The 10-track journey of organic instrumentation and articulate lyrics was a collaborative effort that involved a host of musician friends such as The Rainbow Girls, The California Honeydrops and many more.
You can watch John Craigie’s 2018 Woods Stage performance here from last year’s Pickathon for more insight into Craigie’s incredible stage presence and ingenious lyrics. Or you can watch his Paste Studio on the Road: Nashville session here.
Craigie had been touring continuously for most of the past decade (until the pandemic hit), steadily gaining fans with candid stories, vibrant jokes and life musings from the road. Through this time, he has garnered the admiration of venerated artists such as Todd Snider, Trampled By Turtles, Jack Johnson (who he opened for in 2017) and more.”
