The jaded daughter of a dead preacher-man caught in an exodus, Ethel Cain winds her way through a dizzying attempt at escape from her suffocating upbringing only to find herself crushed within its jaws in the end. Hayden Anhedönia, the woman behind the curtain, serves as the architect for the visceral and haunting world of Ethel Cain.
After singlehandedly writing, producing and mixing her EP Inbred from the basement of a church in Indiana, Inbred was released in 2021 to critical acclaim, receiving overwhelming support from Pitchfork, Paper Mag, TheFADER, Billboard, NYLON, Vice, The Line Of Best Fit, Vanity Fair France, Zane Lowe, Spotify, Youtube, Soundcloud, and Tidal.
After over four years of meticulously constructing her debut album and the graphic visual world that accompanies it, Preacher’s Daughter, was released in May 2022 catching fire with her growing fanbase of loyal daughters and continuing to catch the eyes of The New York Times, Vogue, NPR, W Magazine, V Magazine, Givenchy, and Calvin Klein. Cain then embarked on her first ever headline tour playing sold out shows across the US, Canada and Europe, walking in New York & Paris Fashion week, and closing out the year opening for Florence + the Machine in Denver, which led to the wide release of their live duet performance of “Morning Elvis.”
Cain will release new music later this year, along with performances at Coachella, supporting Caroline Polachek at select dates on her summer tour most notably at Radio City Music Hall, among other shows still to be announced.
