About this album
A year and a half in the making, “A Picnic on the 405,” is Craigie’s most ambitious album to date. With Craigie and the Accidental Poets now comfortable at Bocean studios, John decided to put more attention to the detail and production of the songs he had chosen for his next album. The result is a culmination of Craigie’s diverse sound. The album moves from pumped up bluegrass to mellow grooves; from traditional folk to all-out rock-and-roll. His first true “concept album” as Craigie claims, “A Picnic on the 405” centers on the theme of growing up in Los Angeles.
