Jim Cain, a.k.a. Michiel Vaernewyck, is a singer-songwriter from Ghent, Belgium. Endlessly fascinated by his heroes such as Dylan, Springsteen and Van Morrison he started playing guitar in 2011, with his first show a year later.
As a result: songs about love and hate, illusions and revelations, doubts and hopes ... without taking himself too seriously...
With his guitar and warm voice he brings together musical styles balancing between old folk, blues, soul, country and that spark of rock. Inspired by many heroes, but even more by his own stories to tell.
"An excellent performance – [he] impressed many of our older performers with his youth and skill! None of us remember being that good that young [...] Jim Cain is the future of contemporary folk music" - Brussels Folk Club
"Poignant lyrics that gut you with an honesty and wisdom that goes beyond his songwriting years." - Claire Boswell (EN)
"Jim Cain performs with the same passion and commitment as I did when I was his age. I admire that in him greatly" - Daithi Rua (IR)
