Exercising her powerful set of pipes since the age of three, the Halifax-based soul singer and songwriter has been a performer for her entire life. From belting out gospel songs as a little girl at church to treating Club Med crowds in Florida, Mexico and the Dominican Republic to Motown hits and familiar show tunes, Cain—who, unsurprisingly, has a background in musical theatre— knows how to own a crowd.
One of the East Coast’s greatest soul singers, she’s already collected an African Nova Scotia Music award and an East Coast Music Award nomination and been named a Galaxie Rising Star. And this star knows no limits. She’s shared stages with Michael Bublé, Dutch Mason, Symphony Nova Scotia and at last year’s Halifax Jazz Festival, Charles Bradley, delivering high-powered, passionate and confident performances no matter the audience or setting. With Soul Food, the follow-up to 2009′s Essentially Cyndi, Cain brings another dose of music you can feel from your fingers to your toes.
