John Cranford / Bio

It's in the water...

Something about how the snow falls and the way a fire smells in November in Wisconsin makes you write music.

I grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin but I've lived in 5 states in the past seven years.

Spending 3 summers on a beautiful island in Northern Michigan with great people started the itch to really tackle something honest. I made an album called "Hills and Bikes" with my best friend Jake Anderson. We recorded the whole thing in my room with one microphone. The sound quality was terrible but the emotion was there. It was real.

From then on I kept writing and recording.
Piecing bits together and release three discs independently.

My latest release, VAMPIRES , is available from Swampfire Records and was a year in the making.

I am fortunate to be surrounded and continually meeting people who help me along the way.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my page and I hope you enjoy the music.
