Welcome to the official website of the Legendary Unknown Bluesman Rastus Kain

Rastus Kain The Unknown Blues Man, what an extraordinary guitar man he was. Rastus would capture audiences with his swampy Florida sound on his 1966 Gibson Firebird. Rastus's style of playing was a clean bright tone with sweet tasteful notes. His electrifying slide playing and his raspy voice that touched your soul. 

Rastus wrote about his life experiences and also wrote from the heart. Rastus songwriting has touched so many fans from Blues, Americana, Southern Rock and Country. Songs like Lock Up Your Daughters, Lonesome Side of Blue, Tough Year for Livin', Loser Street (Jim the Bum), Unknown Blues Man, Broke and Blue, One Eye Tied Behind My Back, These Blues and so many more.
