Join us for a night at eTown with John Craigie! John will be performing a concert while having conversations with eTown’s founder Nick Forster. This is going to be a night you absolutely do not want to miss.

About John Craigie:

On his 2020 Asterisk The Universe, John Craigie awkwardly encounters previous flames, mistakes a Catholic School custodian as a saint (and prays to him anyway), pays tribute to modern-day revolutionaries, and explores what it all means to live in the 21st century where infinite possibility does not necessarily equate infinite understanding. He soundtracks these stories with a score of smoked-out soul, tender folk, and American songbook eloquence billowing right from the heart of California. Progressing once more, the interplay of live drums and bass hold the music in the pocket as it simultaneously emanates an acoustic campfire glow.

With these ten tunes, his journey unfolds in between organic instrumentation and lyrical observation. “As with any album, I want the lyrics to be heard, first and foremost,” he exclaims. “This is pretty similar to other versions of who I’ve been and who I am. It’s just one with a fresh batch of songs I’ll add to my setlist and new stories to tell from the road.”

The Opener for John Craigie will be Emelise.

Emelise is a singer/songwriter from the Rocky Mountain Front Range, whose passion for making music brings an infectious new energy to a classic sound. Ever since she started performing at age six, she has often been described as having the voice of an old soul. While she enjoys playing covers by her influences periodically, Emelise primarily performs songs from her own catalog.

In 2017, Emelise placed first in The Stars of Tomorrow Competition at the world famous New York’s Apollo Theatre. She has performed in premiere events in North America including TedX Uncommon in Denver, Move the Dial in Toronto, LA’s Winston House, and the Denver Women’s March. Emelise also enjoys street performing which has led to her booking shows across the country at coffee shops, farmer’s markets, microbreweries, festivals, as well as traditional music venues. No matter where she’s playing, her voice demonstrates one thing very clearly: she is an unstoppable powerhouse who can captivate any audience.
