Tune in tonight, Friday, April 27th, @ 8 PM EST for a live broadcast from The Red Room @ Cafe 939 featuring John Craigie.
John Craigie is a singer-songwriter based out of Portland, Oregon. He’s renowned for his eloquent Americana style, engaging live shows, and off-the-cuff clever observations. He takes influence from classic songwriters of the past and adds his own touch.
His fifth full-length album, No Rain, No Rose boasted two collaborations with Gregory Alan Isakov, namely “Highway Blood” and “I Am California.” “I Am California” quickly generated 500K Spotify streams and counting, and gained the attention of Jack Johnson. Johnson reached out to Craigie, and in the summer of 2017 they they toured together including stops at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California and The Gorge in Washington state.
The Stranger calls his music, ““…the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg with a vagabond troubadour edge.”
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.

Story by Allie Kersten
Nick Cave has had a career more versatile than most. He’s more than a triple threat as a singer-songwriter, author, composer, screenwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and even an actor. He’s led the bands The Birthday Party (formerly The Boys Next Door), Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, and Grinderman, as well as his own solo career. Cave is most known for his contributions to the post-punk, gothic rock, alternative rock, experimental rock, and garage rock genres. His sound is exposed, of course, in his personal music that he has released with his multiple groups, but his trace can be found in the soundtracks of films such as Dogs in Space, The Soul of A Man, Batman Forever, The X-Files, Shrek 2, and Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows – Part 1. Cave has built quite the reputation in the entertainment world since he began his music career. Continue reading “Win Tickets to “So, What Do You Want To Know?” Conversations With Nick Cave, May 1”
