“birds” by Cam Kahin

When It’s All Over by Toronto artist Cam Kahin is described as a depression-fueled coming-of-age story. “Every month you’re a different person. It’s a lot of feeling uncomfortable, and not knowing what’s stable and what’s not.” The title hints at a revelation that Kahin was unable to see when he was writing the songs at age 17: “It means looking at things from the perspective of, ‘This isn’t forever, your time is borrowed.’”

Kahin grew up in Dunnville, Ontario, a small community with around 6,000 residents. Kahin always felt like an outsider there: he was the only person of color in town, there were no music venues, and what art existed there wasn’t for him. He escaped the small-town doldrums by listening to bands like Cage the Elephant, Biffy Clyro, and PUP. By age 13, he was sneaking out to hardcore shows in Hamilton and Toronto. Those shows pounded an energy and darkness into him that he brings to his music and live performances.

Cam Kahin has just announced he’ll support Irish rock band Inhaler on five U.S. dates early next month, starting with a show at Austin’s Emo’s and ending at Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl. Kahin’s also recently announced appearances at several spring festivals on the heels of the April 6th release of his new EP and debut for Dine Alone Records, When It’s All Over. Kahin also recently shared a video for the track “birds.”
