I put Chris on my list of under-appreciated guitarists. Phenomenal player! One of the purest tones I’ve ever heard” – Joe Bonamassa.

Chris Cain was the star of the 2004 and 2005 World Blues Revue. A childhood blues star Cain’s first album “Late Night City Blues” shook the blues world. This outstanding debut project – financed on a shoestring – garnered no less than 4 “W.C.Handy” nominations and immediate international exposure. “The W.C.Handy awards is the blues world equivalent of receiving a Grammy nomination”. Throughout his career he has carefully set the table for a family reunion between those American cousins – blues and jazz. Cain has evolved into a player of such magnitude that Robben Ford – a legendary musician in his own right – regularly uses Chris Cain as his opening act.
