Cain Rising springs from the UK. With influences from the folk and country music from my childhood in Glasgow married to my love of the music that's come from America over the last four decades - Springsteen, Petty, Dylan.
Our new EP features Cain Rising Mark 2.
Since we last heard from Cain Rising there have been some personnel changes. The core of Jo, Jez and Jimmy remains. Incoming guitarist Ian Hopper - edgy and creative; Mick Ivory’s drumming is the band’s beating heart. Matt Crawford joined us in the studio. His Hammond and Piano lends the band a touch of soul.
Also, this is the first time the band have experimented with a brass section courtesy of Rebecca Gibson Swift and Pablo Mendelssohn. The title track features these two friends of our with some great soul riffs and Pablo's Mariachi trumpet at the end - love it! They also show up for Walk My Way - rocking out with a touch of swing!
And Jamie Masters. Producer and honorary band member. We couldn’t have done this without his invaluable skills and exceptional ears. Patient and diplomatic to a fault in the face of me sitting in the back seat going “Are we there yet?”.
I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoyed creating them.
