Born To Be Wild… More than a song, more than the theme of a culture, and more than a way of life. It brings visions of life on your own terms, a sense of freedom and adventure. It could also bring to mind the living embodiment of the song in the remarkably talented and lovely Miss Jasmine Cain. Born in the heart of the iron horse territory; Sturgis, South Dakota, her life is the story of how hard work combined with talent can lead to a successful and rewarding music career, all without a record label pulling her strings.
Jasmine’s raspy, soulful voice and gypsy sprit weaves a spell that can enrapture the mind and entangle the heart as your listen to her singing stories that feel like they come from your own life. Combine that with her killing looks and disarming personality and you understand why after talking to her for five minutes you feel like you’ve known her your whole life. She’s friendly, down to earth and has a quick wit. But when she takes the stage in what is often more than crowds of 1000 to 5000 or more her stage presence burns hotter than the bright lights she performs under.
Welcome everyone to Episode# 41 of The Tour Bus Music Show. I’m your host T. Mic and it was my privilege to interview Jasmine Cain a few weeks back and I have to say it was one of my favorite interviews I have done in the over 40 shows of The Tour Bus Music Show. Normally our interviews can last from 20 to 30 minutes or so when I realized that towards the end of what was more of an interesting and enlightening conversation rather than interview, it astounded me that we had at that point been talking for almost an hour. It was a frank and honest conversation about her life, her experiences, the challenges of maneuvering successfully through the crazy business end of a music career, our mutual love of music, playing bass, singing and motorcycles.
One thing I learned about her in our conversation that behind her warm & charming personality is a brilliant songwriter and musician with a knack for drawing in support, endorsements and recognition of her talents. She is the current JPF Female Artist of the Year and Nashville’s Music City Mayhem two –time Female Rock Vocalist. She also hold a total of 8 JPF awards – the most awards ever to be awarded to any one artist from the JPF Association.
I just wanted to let you know about a few things going on here at the Audios Maximus Network and things happening in the coming weeks here on the Tour Bus Music Show. As we announced last week, we will be re-launching another music show of ours that has been on hiatus for some time. The On Stage Music Show will soon be back on the air with lots of great music and interviews with a number of very talented artists and groups from other music genres such as blues, lighter rock, jazz, acoustic and lots of other styles of music. The Onstage Music show will be back on the virtual air, as it is of the internet in mid-March and will be posted bi-weekly. We’ve got some great talent lined up and ready to bring to the world. You will be able to find out more after March 3rd by visiting us at www.amnpodcast.com/theonstagemusicshow. We will also be re-launching our Nue Muzik on the Double Planet show where for an hour per show, we will feature just the music from artists heard on The Tour Bus Music Show and The Onstage Music Show. Nue Muzik On The Double Planet will go live in Mid-April of this year.
We also have a big surprise for a new music show that we are currently working on that may launch as early as summer 2013. It is something that has had a tremendous popularity in the past and is still in high demand today. There are still lots of details and legality’s to work out before we can announce exactly what it is, but if we are successful in pulling it off, it will be worth the wait, so stay tuned here to The Tour Bus Music Show where we will be telling you more about this in the near future. So it’s sufficient to say that we have a lot of great music shows coming in the near future and you will be able to subscribe to all of them soon, we’ll be letting you know how and where real soon.
Stay tuned to the end of the show and we’ll tell you about some great contests we will be having starting in March where you can win some cool prizes such as Autographed CD’s from some of the groups that have been on The Tour Bus Music Show on past episodes.

Jasmine Cain’s Bio
With so many miles behind and so many miles left to travel, Sturgis, SD, native, Jasmine Cain, has paved a way for female rockers in the motorcycle culture. Current JPF Female Artist of the Year and Nashville’s Music City Mayhem two-time Female Rock Vocalist, she has set the standard and raised the bar. Living her life through her songs and gypsy spirit like a modern day Janis Joplin, she is a ghost on the road sitting next to you as you take your own musical journey.
With three self-released albums (“The Inside” 2004, “Locks & Keys” 2008, “Highway Prophet” 2011) and a newly released music video for her title track single, “Highway Prophet,” Jasmine Cain has sold over 20,000 albums, and gained 5,000 views in the first week of her music video alone. She holds 8 JPF awards–the most awards ever to be awarded to any one artist from the JPF Association. Her performances are stadium-quality rock shows to audiences of 1,000-5,000 on average.
Jasmine Cain encompasses what a true artist is meant to be, taking the reins as the songwriter, lead vocalist, and bassist for her band of rebel rockers. Her songs are emotional, raw, and timeless. Her voice is a mixture of strong, aggressive, soul-filled attitude, while allowing you to feel a slight vulnerability that takes you on an emotional, super-charged ride. You can hear your own life story in every raspy note.
Her natural ability to capture and hold the attention of her audience has earned her several nationally known tours as the headliner for Easyriders Bike Show & Rodeo Tour for 3 consecutive years, main act for 7 years at the Full Throttle Saloon (which has now become a TruTV series), and the official touring band for Broken Spoke Saloons nationwide.
“Jasmine Cain is an old school rocker in a modern day package! Her band is loaded with great players, great songs, explosive energy and a bass playing, drop dead gorgeous lead singer who writes, records and rocks the mic on award winningsingles and heavy weight albums at every turn. This gal is bursting at the seams of the indie world ready for the biggest stages around!” -Brian Austin Whitney, Founder Just Plain Folks Music Organization (JPF)
“Jasmine Cain is THE REAL DEAL! Few new artists come to mind who encompass the essence of rock n roll. Jasmine ‘s songs are filled with emotion as well as detail, putting you in the driver’s seat as she takes you on a musical ride of imagery and diversity. With an unrepentant spirit, Jasmine Cain is ready for lift-off. Lucky for us, the lift-off is NOW!-Mac, 97.1 RQQ- Nashville’s Rock Station, Music Director/Afternoon Radio Personality
“In the twenty years that I have bee promoting events, the longest lines I have ever seen at a band’s merch booth is at Jasmine Cain’s booth. They leave the audience wanting more and that’s how I measure the success of a band” says John Green, Promoter for Easyrider Events.
