Martyr Kanin's fans run deep. They've compared Martyr Kanin to everything from Bon Jovi to the Counting Crows to the mellow stylings of David Grey to Bob Seger to Jack Johnson. It's tough to classify Martyr Kanin into a specific genre, as their plethora of originals can be separately classified from driving and daring to soulful and heartfelt. Also, they love to entertain crowds with their own versions of everything from Bon Jovi to Michael Jackson to John Denver...80's songs, 90's songs, rock, country, pop, classic rock...and yes, again, especially those numerous catchy originals.

Martyr Kanin is a southwestern Pennsylvania band started in 2011 by singer-songwriter hobbyist, Michael Miskanin (vocals/rhythm guitar). Late in Michael's college career, he bought an acoustic guitar and began teaching himself how to play. Within a few years, Michael (solo) used Pittsburgh studio musicians to record the Martyr Kanin debut album, Palm of a Shadow (released in February 2012).

In early 2012, Michael teamed up with drummer, Charlie Chas Kiel, and the duo took the stage performing acoustic shows around southwestern Pa. The two met up for a jam session one day and instantly clicked in the chemistry of their playing styles. Chas also has a talent for playing keys.

In May 2013, Martyr Kanin released a self-titled acoustic demo album featuring 9 originals and 2 covers (In Color Jamey Johnson, & Whats Up 4 Non Blondes).

In early 2014, we have added a new bass player and are currently auditioning some key players also.

Martyr Kanin is already gearing up for their next album, anxious to get their newest material into the minds of listeners everywhere.

The band, Michael (Lead Vox, Guitar), Chas (Drums, Keys, Backing Vox), Ross (Bass) are looking forward to booking for the upcoming 2014 jam season!
