May 19 – Thomas Cain

Thomas Cain returns to Holy Trinity this year as our  “Gentleman of Jazz,” and what a gentleman he is. Known by many as the Senior Director, Writer/Publisher Relations for BMI, Thomas Cain is first and foremost a great musician. He plays piano, organ and trumpet; he has a Bachelor’s degree in music education from TSU.

He’s a singer, publisher, producer and songwriter, in addition to having opened shows for artists such as Ray Charles, George Benson, Bill Withers, Ramsey Lewis, Donny Hathaway, Dave Brubeck, Melba Moore and Johnny Mathis. In 1991, Thomas was honored with the Choice award and in 1999 he was inducted into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. He’s written and or performed on jingles for national products, and he performs with his group, The Thomas Cain Band.

Cain received the HAL  (Heroes and Legends) Cornerstone Award in 2008. The following year, he performed at Lincoln Center in New York City for the National Endowment for the Art’s Jazz Masters Live series. Also in 2009, he was honored as part of the 105 Voices of History HBCU celebration at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. In 2012, Cain retired from his 29-year stint at BMI/Nashville and joined the music faculty at Tennessee State University to teach music publishing. Cain continues in his career as a songwriter, musician, and music publisher helping to manage songs as the intellectual property of creative artists in Nashville. He remains an active performer and studio musician in addition to his publishing work.
