Here is the official bio from Tin Can Gin:
In the summer of 2011, childhood friends Harrison Olk and Trevor Marrin formed a folk band. Alongside, Bryan Nelson, they wrote songs and built up a very respectable repertoire. In September of 2011, they performed for their first time, proclaiming themselves as Tin Can Gin. Later on, fiddle virtuoso Nori Perrine joined on and expert musician, Mark Glen was soon to follow on bass. Over the next year, Tin Can Gin held gigs in various venues across the Midwest including performances at the Porcupine Mountain’s Music Festival, Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, The Fine Line Music Café in Minneapolis, and Stage North in Washburn, WI.
Tin Can Gin’s unique sound draws from each member’s personal music backgrounds. From Harrison’s traditional bluegrass upbringing, Bryan’s folk background, Nori’s Celtic melodies and the sultry rhythm of Mark’s bass lines, you’re sure to find a sound emitted that tickles your musical palate. This hurricane stew of influence brings out a style of music that is as bitter and sweet as the best IPA’s out there.
Tin Can Gin just released their first self-titled studio album recorded at Sacred Heart Studios in Duluth, MN.
