Kairen Caine is an Alt-Country/Americana//Folk artist based in the quiet County Kilkenny countryside. Originally from Hampshire, England, she emigrated to Queensland, Australia as a teenager. A short trip to Ireland in 2000 led to exploring early musical musings, learning to pour the perfect Guinness and working in the animation industry, and eventually putting down roots.
After developing through earlier projects in indie-rock and indie-folk, her writing began to inhabit the world of folk/Americana, a genre she felt absolutely at home.
Her debut single Turning Tide features pedal steel player Sarah Jory and was included on The Ralph McLean Show on BBC Radio Ulster, Australian Country Radio and Martin Bridgeman's Ceol Anocht on KCLR96fm.
Her second single, released 12th January 2024 is Wash Your Bones, a powerful Alt-Country track driven by guitars, drums and trumpet telling of an elder's warning to a man who set out in the world with good intentions but is following a dangerous path. The song was originally inpired by part of Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude.
There are more songs on the way very soon!
