Raven Cain is a man whose life reads like a Chuck Palahniuk novel. Raised in an ultra religious cult, with his mother, A father who was an absent musician and a stepfather who abused, poisoned, and almost killed him. To say His life was traumatic is an understatement. His family fought hopeless poverty and substandard living conditions his whole childhood. Despite overwhelming odds Raven managed to devote his life to his two passions, Music and Martial Arts. Out of desperation Raven fought tooth and nail to get out of the harsh conditions eventually hitting the road with his Rock band.
Despite his trials and tribulations he has had tremendous success. In the 1990's he was signed to Dreamscape Records out of New York City and became a huge regional smash selling out venues around the East Coast. Raven's well known reputation for a wild stage presence and thought provoking lyrics earned him the title of the 90's Iggy Pop by Flash Magazine.
Raven retired from public life in 1999 to open a chain of martial arts schools, Raven has been studying the martial arts since he was 5 years old, and is currently a 6th Degree Black Belt. In 1999 Raven began to do active work with the Guardian Angels. As a Guardian Angel Raven walked into the middle of a gang war in Washington DC unarmed with a group of students and temporarily stopped the violence. Those who know him personally will tell you that it is typical for Raven to do the most outrageous things. If You Want A Bad Boy, you found one. You found one with heart and a passion.
In 20013 Raven moved to Utah where he began to reconnect with his music again. He made such a splash on the west coast that within 2 years Raven had inked a deal with 405 Hollywood / Atlantic Records. Once again Raven found success as a regional hit. His album Son of the South has gained him notoriety as a powerful vocalist and an insightful songwriter.
Raven is a true artist and frontman whose dynamic stage performance leaves the crowd wanting more. Off stage Raven keeps people intrigued with his ongoing artistic endeavours, including co founded the martial art KaJuKiBo, becoming an Ordained Buddhist Priest. Raven has recently released his 2nd album on 405 Hollywood/Atlantic Records. The album is a Southern Rock/ Biker Rock album with a twist of philosophy. The album is titled "OBLIVIOUS" and is on sell anywhere and everywhere that sells music.
Considering he is a direct blood descendant of the world's most notorious and infamous Pirate, Blackbeard, it would seem he is merely keeping the family tradition of a chaotic and exciting life alive.
