About

Martyr Kanin is a rock band in the vein of Bon Jovi based in Uniontown, PA. They’ve released three studio albums of original songs, and they keep audiences guessing with creative twists on songs by artists as varied as Johnny Cash, Michael Jackson, and AC/DC.

The band is comprised of Michael Miskanin on vocals and rhythm guitar, drummer Charlie “Chas” Kiel, bassist Ross Hamilton, and interim lead guitarist Ian Miller. Michael founded the band in 2011 and recorded the Martyr Kanin debut album, Palm of a Shadow, in 2012. Later that year he teamed up with Chas, and they released a self-titled acoustic album in 2013. The band continued to grow with the addition of Ross and released their third album, Black & Blue, in 2015. Martyr Kanin is sometimes accompanied by stand-in lead guitarist Ian Miller but is currently seeking to fill this position permanently; for more details, please contact us.

Martyr Kanin maintains a busy schedule playing live shows in the greater Pittsburgh area. The independent trio loves to entertain their growing fan base with original material and an ever-expanding collection of unique covers.
