    John Craigie: Notes From The Road

    John Craigie is a songwriter´s songwriter.


    Known for his captivating live performances, John blends a unique brand of earworm folk music interspersed with humorous stories, daring listeners to reflect on the human condition, often with a smile. For a tasty dose check out his live album “Opening For Steinbeck".


    John’s poignancy, humor, and reflections from life as a nomadic troubadour spill into his music where he takes you on a ride that might end in tears, laughter, or some other unexpected emotion…you just never know. Either way, you’ll be glad you spent time absorbing his art. As Rolling Stone Magazine said, “It’s hard to immerse yourself in a Craigie album and not emerge elated.”


    Tune in to this episode to discover John’s unique perspective on nomad life as a DIY musician, hear his advice on how to pursue your true calling (and stick with it), learn what makes a great story and why humor is so important, thoughts on the craft of songwriting, and much more.


    If you have a passion for music, travel, and great storytelling you’ll love this episode with one of my all-time favorite artists.

An ocean of inspiration

This wonderful podcast has been a source of inspiration for me ever since I started listening to it 4-5 years ago. The positive energy flowing through it and the associated location indie community lifts up those of us stuck in undesirable 9 to 5 jobs. Thanks to this I have finally started a side-hustle that I hope can one day free me up to do what I am truly passionate about. Thank you.
