Summer Sounds

Summer Sounds
Chris Cain  plays jazz-tinged, blues soaked guitar with deep, warm vocals that have maturity and authenticity. His expressive style is the result of a lifetime of study and the relentless pursuit of music mastery. His passion and intensity are a blend of his mother’s Greek ancestry and his father’s soulful black heritage.
