Kane Churko (son and protege of heavyweight rock producer Kevin Churko) has written songs for some of rock’s biggest names including Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, In This Moment and many more. Canadian born, but Las Vegas based and currently working out of the Churko’s recently custom built studio “The Hideout”, Kane has been actively working in nearly every capacity you can think of in recording studios and the music business since he was 14.
Music is a basic instinct for Kane, growing up in a musical family with no formal training other than the professional guidance of his father and the experiences he has gained working with a broad range of people from an early age. As a multi-instrumentalist, programmer or Pro Tools master he has worked for the likes of legendary producers Mutt Lange and Eric Valentine as well as an eclectic range of popular artists such as Bob Dylan, Shania Twain, Maroon 5, Smash Mouth, Hinder & The Corrs.
Kane’s hard work was finally recognized by the industry in 2013 when Kane became the youngest person to ever win the Juno Award (Canada’s version of the Grammys) for “Engineer of the Year” for his work on In This Moment’s “Blood”/Five Finger Death Punch’s “Coming Down” narrowly beating out legendary Bob Rock who held the record for 31 years before him. Flash forward to 2015 when Kane also landed his first #1 Active Rock song as co-writer, producer, engineer and mixer of “Face Everything And Rise” by Papa Roach.
Kane’s experience and success has not been limited to hard rock though as he has been the frontman/songwriter for Juno nominated pop/funk band Modern Science since 2007 while also releasing a diverse range of solo material since the early 2000s as Mr.Kane. His unique sonic brand of industrial pop has also been highly sought after and featured on officially commissioned remixes featuring 5FDP, In This Moment, Rob Zombie and Tech9. A writer, producer, engineer, mixer and artist; it is not just one of his talents but the combination of all of them that he credits for his ability to lead a song to success.
