Brother Cane is an American rock band originally from Birmingham, Alabama. Formed by singer/guitarist Damon Johnson and bassist Glenn Maxey in 1991, the group released three studio albums, charting several singles including three number 1’s and five top 10 hits.

Brother Cane found immediate success with the release of its self-titled debut album in July 1993 which delivered three singles: “Got No Shame”, “That Don’t Satisfy Me”, and “Hard Act To Follow.” “Got No Shame” reached #1 on the Mainstream Rock charts and garnered the band U.S. tours with Aerosmith, Robert Plant and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band’s next album, Seeds (1995), yielded another #1 Rock track, the haunting and swampy “And Fools Shine On.” This hit led to a lengthy and successful tour in support of the mighty Van Halen. Three years later saw the release of Wishpool (1998) and Brother Cane’s third #1 song at Rock Radio, “I Lie In The Bed I Make”. After major personnel changes at Virgin Records (the band’s label), as well as a major shift in style at rock and alternative radio formats, the band laid down their instruments and called it a day in 2000.

Over the next 20 years Johnson went on to become one of the most sought after guitarists and songwriters in rock. Touring extensively with rock icons like Alice Cooper and Thin Lizzy, and co-writing tracks for the likes of Sammy Hagar, Stevie Nicks, Carlos Santana and Steven Tyler, Johnson’s profile steadily rose.

2019 found Johnson recording with producer Nick Raskulinecz, (Foo Fighters, Korn, Rush, etc.) and releasing the critically acclaimed debut from Damon Johnson & The Get Ready, 2020’s “Battle Lessons.” It was while supporting that record in 2021 that he received the call that any guitarist that grew up in the south could only dream of: filling in for Gary Rossington in the legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd. It was while touring with Skynyrd that Johnson was pleasantly surprised at how many fans not only remembered Brother Cane, but shared their stories on how much the band and those songs meant to them. “Will you ever get back together? Would you ever tour again? Please!!??” Those big questions are now getting a big answer: “Hell Yes!”

Brother Cane will be performing select dates in 2022 with plans for a full tour in 2023…and for some new music. “I’m just over the moon about this,” says Johnson. “Brother Cane fans are some of the most passionate that I’ve encountered in all of my travels.”He adds, “I’m certainly proud of all these songs, and the guys and I are looking forward to bringing them to the people once again.”

  1. Saw Damon and original band in mgm, al a long time ago. Playing outside on a Sunday in the rain. Loved the music then, saw bro Cain at least a dozen times throughout al and have all the cds. Retired now but still rocking and will go if they play anywhere close

  2. Can’t wait to see Brother Cane in Milwaukee!!! Just bought tickets. I hope there’s records at the merch table and even more so hoping for a meet and greet. Brother Cane is the first concert I’ve ever seen back around 1996. Looking forward!

  3. Looking forward to this. Hopefully Atlanta will get a date. Only thing that would make this better would be for Audley to knock the dust off of Cry of Love.

  4. Love the shot to hear you anywhere. Come on down Texas way. Everyone’s talking about Brother Cane coming back. Ticket sales will not be an issue. You are the Man!

  5. Your solo Northern Lights show blew us away. My fave t-shirt from that night. Then Brother Cane shows up last night! What a rocker! Thanks for making Milwaukee STOKED!

  6. Hoping Brother Cane makes it to the Kansas City area again. Had the pleasure of catching BC back in 98 at a rock festival and they were outstanding live!
