If Aerosmith played Country songs or Van Halen had a fiddle player, they might sound something like Abel Kane. Is it Hillbilly Metal? Southern Rock for the 21st century? One thing's for sure - "This Ain't Yo' Daddy's Hee-Haw"!

Biography

Abel Kane follows in the footsteps of those who found and forged their own sound and broke down the walls of conformity. From Johnny Cash and Hank Sr. to Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and Van Halen, they owe their musical hearts, minds and souls to those who were not afraid of dreaming, creating and living their own vision.

In that spirit Abel Kane defies the homogenized, demographic-specific model currently being propagated by Music City and proudly offers the discerning listener a choice. A tooth shattering rock-n-roll band from the country, the trio mixes street beats with crunchy guitars and infectious melodies to create stadium anthems that have new audiences singing along on the 2nd chorus. "By the People, For the People" is the credo of Abel Kane, and their willingness to interact on a personal level is what turns ordinary fans into dedicated members of the Kane Gang.

The band is the brainchild of frontman and Tyler, TX native Ryan Reynolds. After numerous record and publishing deals which netted cuts by such Country stars as Tracy Lawrence & Tracy Byrd, Ryan became frustrated with the feeling that his best songs were not being recorded. In 2005 Ryan met Jamey Perrenot, a producer and guitarist from Dallas, TX whose resume' includes stints with LeeAnn Rimes, Stevie Nicks and Carolyn Dawn Johnson. Abel Kane was born. When original bassist Pete Ianacone left the band in Spring of '07 to tour with Joss Stone, Ryan & Jamey were introduced to Dave Webb from Atlanta, GA. Dave had just finished touring with SugarLand and was excited about the opportunity to be a band member instead of a hired gun.

Collectively, the members of Abel Kane have performed at prestigious venues like Madison Square Garden, Fenway Park, Texas Stadium and appeared on TV shows such as Good Morning America, Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve, The Tonight Show and more. To borrow a phrase from Bull Durham, these boys have "been to the show". Now, as Abel Kane they are Rocking the World - One Crowd at a Time!
