Biography

In small-town, upstate N.Y., there are very few unique musical exports. Fewer, even, are genuine world-class song writers, one-of-a-kind artists, or absolute characters. Arison Cain has garnered some serious acclaim for being just that: "a walking pop-culture phenomenon". Since 2007, Arison Cain has shared the stage with several nationwide acts, some on major labels, as well as being featured on major music websites like absolutepunk.net. Having independently released 2 records under the name "The Score", Arison Cain is preparing to release a new album in 2011, the first under his own name, saying "I feel like I need to own up to my mess at this point". His most ambitious project to date, "Anthems for the Fucked Up and Unreasonable" will show the talent spectrum, imagination and heart of "The Next Great American Train Wreck". And who can't relate to that?

In the past, Arison Cain has shared the stage with: Bright Eyes, Bayside, The Mountain Goats, Hit The Lights, Nightmare of You, Ace Enders and a Million Different People, Fear Before, I am the Avalanche, Ice Nine Kills, Innerpartysystem, Anthony Raneri, You Me and Everyone We Know, Vinnie Caruana, Patent Pending, Life in Your Way, Thieves and Villains, Young and Divine, Punchline, and many many many more.
