GJK Promotions proudly presents Kin Cain from Victoria, British Columbia, as Artist of the Day.


Kin Cain plays folk rock, folk and concrete music. This is a quote from his myspace that I found inspiring "I wish people would be more concerned with the outcome than the income."


Kin Cain had a goal after his first cd release in 1981, to preserve the songs of the First Nations. Now that his over 20 year journey is completed, he has returned to the studio. Kin Cain works with Band in Canada and is currently recording his second cd that will be released in December. Kin Cain will be touring in the near future, so check back to see when Kin Cain and the Band in Canada will be in your area.
