Kane Mathis began his musical career at age 16 playing blues and jazz clubs in Chicago and performing with legends such as Barrelhouse Chuck and Harmonica Todd for 5 years. He performed everywhere from festivals to roadhouses before going to The Lawrence Conservatory to study Jazz and Classical guitar. Simultaneously Kane began making trips to The Gambia, Africa to live with a family of hereditary musicians, which he has done for the past 14 years. Kane holds a diploma from The Tiramang Traditional music school in The Gambia and has performed for the President of The Gambia, the American Ambassador to The Gambia, and he has appeared on Gambian National Radio and Television.  Kane's first album was on daily rotation on Gambian radio. Kane is also one of the leading interpreters of Ottoman classical music having studied at Istanbul's I.T.U. conservatory before beginning a 5-year apprenticeship with Oud virtuoso M√ľnir Nurettin Beken.

As a composer Kane is regularly commissioned to create original works for dance, theater, and instrumental ensembles. Kane's new works are created for live performance and fixed media. His new compositions merge his experience with African and Middle Eastern music with new forms and electronic media. Performing on the 21-string Mandinka Harp and the Turkish Oud, Kane Mathis renders compelling interpretations of traditional music, and years of study with generous masters have given Kane a rare opportunity to share these traditions with other cultures.
