There’s an old Buddhist saying, “No mud, no lotus,” which refers to the idea that bad things are necessary in order to make the good things. Folk musicmaker John Craigie has distilled that wisdom into a new studio album, No Rain, No Rose, the title of which pays tribute to his adopted hometown and the City of Roses itself, Portland, Oregon. No Rain, No Rose represents a shift in Craigie’s life typical solo acoustic style, as well as a transition in his life. The time-tested troubadour pushed the boundaries of his sound, using the environment provided in the living room of the old Victorian in which he lives, as friends dropped by to sing or play a roster which includes The Shook Twins, Gregory Alan Isakov, Tyler Thompson, and Jay Cobb Anderson.
