Raising Cain

Raising Cain are an acoustic duo based near Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Forged from a shared passion in Americana, Roots and Blues music, James Cundle and Bill Burke began interpreting contemporary and traditional songs in 2014 and performing them stripped down and live at local open mic. events. As the positive response grew, so did their confidence in their distinctive approach to performing and the pair began writing original material in early 2015.

Inspired by artists from the early 1900’s right through to the current day, the sound of old time strings bands, the grungy resonance of the delta blues along with the contemporary sounds of Dylan and Cash can all be heard influencing their writing.  Mixing rhythm, finger style and slide guitars with natural vocal harmonies provide an extraordinary depth and honesty that engages and envelopes the venues they play.

The pair are actively writing and continue to draw influences from all around them. A new album of original material is currently in the planning as they hope to head towards the studio later this year.
