Jonathan Kane is a Downtown NYC legend — as co-founder of the no-wave behemoth Swans, and the rhythmic thunder behind the massed-guitar armies of Rhys Chatham and the rock excursions of La Monte Young -- and as one of the hardest-hitting drummers on the planet. On his critically acclaimed 2005 and 2006 releases ‘February’, and ‘I Looked At The Sun’, 2009's 'Jet Ear Party' and 2012's 'Live at Issue Project Room' Kane summons Swans’ concussive wallop, Chatham’s dense guitar strata, and the perpetual propulsion of 70s krautrockers Neu, then steers it all head-on into... the blues. Make no mistake about it: Kane is a blues man, and beneath his music’s hip shaking high-decible bombast, he’s powering guitar-driven minimalism into the blues, and the blues into guitar-driven harmonic maximalism. Hailed as "Virtuosic" (N.Y. Times), "Tireless drumming phenomenon" (Village Voice), "Magnificent, Mighty" (N.Y. Daily News), "Volcanic" (Rolling Stone) Kane has toured and recorded with Elliott Sharp, Tony Hymas (Jeff Beck, Jack Bruce), Dave Soldier, Jean Francois Pauvros, John King and many others, as well as composing for dance, theater, television and solo and ensemble performance.
