Tin Can Gin was born and brewed upon the shores of Lake Superior near Duluth by childhood pals Harrison Olk and Trevor Marrin. Along with mandolinist Bryan Nelson, the trio created the trademark TCG tunes that are fan favorites to this very day. In the autumn of 2011 the group was summoned to the stage at their first gig as "Tin Can Gin". As time passed the band added fiddle virtuoso Nori Perrine and Neil Krause on stand-up bass to round out the Tin Can Gin sound.
That unique sound draws from each members musical upbringing. Harrison's traditional bluegrass banjo, Trevor's creative song writing and guitar work, Bryan's fast folk pickin' mandolin, Neil's solid bass backing all wrapped and complimented with a sprinkle of Nori's Celtic fiddle subtleties. The combination of music and vocal gymnastics creates an experience in sound that is sure to tickle your musical palate while you tap your toes in unbridled pleasure. This hurricane stew of music, vocals and melody explodes in a style as bitter and sweet as the best IPAs out there today.
Tin Can Gin has played various venues across the Midwest including the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival, Grandma's Marathon in Duluth, Minneapolis' Fine Line Music Cafe, Big Top Chautauqa in Bayfield, WI, the MLB All Star Game in Minneapolis and many other reputable events. In the spring of 2015 Tin Can Gin released their second studio album, Coming Home, recorded at the renown Sacred Heart Studios in Duluth, Minnesota.
