The Grapes of Wrath:
Kevin Kane is a founding member of The Grapes of Wrath (vocals/guitar). He temporarily parted ways with the band in 1992, with the remaining members continuing to record as Ginger.
In 1998, principle songwriters Kane and bandmate Tom Hooper reunited to record a new Grapes of Wrath album, Field Trip. It was released in 2000, with Hooper leaving the band the following year.
In 2010 Kane, Tom Hooper (vocals/bass), and Chris Hooper (drums) reformed the original line-up for live performances. In 2012, Grapes signed a deal with Toronto based label Aporia Records to release an album of new material. The album was recorded with producer Darryl Neudorf (Neko Case, Blue Rodeo) in the Spring of 2012 and was released under the title High Road in March 2013.
As a solo artist, Kane has released the solo albums Neighborhood Watch (1996), Timmy Loved Judas Priest (2001), and How to Build a Lighthouse (2007). His most recent solo album, The Home Version (2011) sees Kane revisiting songs from The Grapes Of Wrath and his previous solo albums live in the studio, with just his acoustic guitar for accompaniment.
Kevin Kane was a member of the short-lived Canadian supergroup Stellar Band of Neighbours. The band included Steven Drake (Odds), Johnny Fay (The Tragically Hip), Simon Kendall (Doug and the Slugs), Del Cowsill (Dustin Bentall), and Wyckham Porteous.
Kevin Kane has worked as a producer for Zumpano, The Salteens, Star Collector, Wayne Lavallee, Leeroy Stagger, and others.
