Forged in the crucible of heartbreak and longing, 'Soft Hail' is John Craigie's most intimate and personal album yet. Originally conceived of as a 'lullaby' coda to his previous record 'A Picnic on the 405,' 'Soft Hail' evolved in the studio into something much, much more. With The Accidental Poets and a host of talented guest players on hand for the recording, Craigie & Co. Found a renewed focus on crafting sonic moods and atmospheres to match the emotional heft of each song. The result is a thematically and aurally uniform collection of songs that chronicle the bittersweet life of a traveling folk singer with stark and compelling honesty.
