Anyone who grew up in the 80s has most certainly heard of Journey and Jonathan Cain… Who can’t remember the song, “Don’t Stop Believin’,” as being one of the greatest hits ever?!
It was in 1976 when Jonathan Cain released his first solo record, Windy City Breakdown. In 1979, he joined the band, The Babys, and in 1980 joined the rock band, Journey, rounding out the songwriting genius behind the defining album, Escape.
Jonathan’s signature piano, synth playing and songwriting contributions with Journey, The Babys and Bad English have earned him many Billboard hits, multiple Gold, Platinum and Diamond-selling records, a Star on the Hollywood walk of fame, a GRAMMY nomination and the best-selling catalog rock song in iTunes’ history (“Don’t Stop Believing”).
Journey was named as the fifth best band in rock history in a 2005 USA Today opinion poll, was inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, and continues today, selling out to major venues, world-wide.
I have truly been blessed to follow Jonathan’s career, the last several years, through ONE JAM NATION Radio. It’s been an honor and a privilege to have him as a special featured guest through our various ON AIR programming.
Writing/co-writing some of the biggest rock songs in history, including “Don’t Stop Believin’,” which is the No. 1 digital catalog rock song, as well as mega hits such as “Faithfully,” “Open Arms,” “Separate Ways,” “Who’s Crying Now” and many more, Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Journey member Jonathan Cain is also a fan of college basketball and was inspired by the sport to write the new song, “What It Takes To Win.” Jonathan debuted the song LIVE last week at the NCAA Final Four tournament in Minneapolis and is giving away the track to basketball and Rock ‘n Roll fans who can sign up for it at www.jonathancainmusic.com/what-it-takes-to-win.
Jonathan is also readying his fourth new solo album in as many years, More Like Jesus, which releases May 3 from Identity Records with The Fuel Music distribution. Billboard broke the story around his anticipated, 15-song album and premiered the track “Kingdom Come Down” as the iconic artist continues to press into his faith with inspired new music.
The song was written in response to Jonathan asking himself what he should pray for and what would be his ultimate New Year’s resolution in 2018. “More Like Jesus” became his personal anthem that helped carry him through a huge, 58-city arena/stadium tour with Journey that played to over one million people last year.
An integral part to one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, Jonathan Cain is intent on “walking his life out more in the mind of Christ.” Along with the new music, Jonathan released his Rolling Stone-lauded, Publishers Weekly-bestselling book, Don’t Stop Believin’: The Man, the Band, and the Song that Inspired Generations, and has become a sought-after speaker.
