Raised in a Southern Baptist community in the Florida panhandle, Hayden Silas Anhedönia grew up with a mama who’d play hymns and Gregorian chants on CD while she cooked. By 2018, she’d invented the world of Ethel Cain – “an all-American girl trying to fit in and break out of the mould.”
Ethel’s a vessel for stories of hard living, doomed romance, and rides to the dusty nowhere on the back of a motorcycle.
The songs shade themselves in the dark shadow of the American Dream and burst into sundrenched moments of guitar-driven dream pop. Performed with a church-trained voice that could tame wild hearts.
About Ethel Cain
From a conservative religious upbringing in small-town Florida to inclusion on Barack Obama’s annual playlist with “American Teenager,” it’s been a whirlwind journey for 24-year-old singer, songwriter and pre-eminent Southern Gothic star Ethel Cain. With Cain's EP Inbred received critical acclaim upon its release in 2021, and her debut album has only added fuel to the fire, embarking on her first-ever headline tour, which saw sold-out shows across the US, Canada, and Europe.
Preacher's Daughter has caught the eyes of major publications such as The New York Times, Vogue, NPR, and W Magazine, as well as high-end fashion brands Givenchy and Calvin Klein. She even walked in New York and Paris Fashion Week, showcasing her unique style and creative vision.
The year culminated with an opening performance for Florence + the Machine in Denver, where she performed a duet of “Morning Elvis” with the band, and the performance was widely released.
