About Jonathan Cain

Keyboardist/songwriter Jonathan Cain found AOR success in a series of bands ranging from Journey to the Babys and Bad English. Born in Chicago on February 26, 1950, he first emerged fronting the Jonathan Cain Band, which issued one LP, Windy City Breakdown, on the Bearsville label in 1977. A year later Cain replaced keyboardist Mike Corby in the British band the Babys, which scored the hits "Isn't It Time" and "Every Time I Think of You." When the group disbanded in 1981, Cain joined Journey prior to their breakthrough hit, Escape, and remained in the band until they broke up after 1986's Raised on Radio. Two years later, he and Journey guitarist Neal Schon teamed with ex-Babys frontman John Waite in Bad English, which scored a pair of major hits — "When I See You Smile" and "Price of Love" — before calling it quits in 1991. Cain resumed his solo career with 1995's Back to the Innocence and Piano with a View; after rejoining Journey for their 1996 reunion effort, Trial by Fire, he returned with the solo Body Language in 1997, which was followed the next year by For a Lifetime. During the 2000s, Cain divided his time between Journey tours and a solo career, releasing a new album every few years. His solo career went on the back burner after 2006's Where I Live, but he returned a decade later with What God Wants to Hear (2016) and Unsung Noel (2017).
