Smart, funny, timely and only slightly irreverent, Daniel Cainer’s deeply moving tales about his family, his history and his observational comedy are a joy. Tales of loss and of leaving, of triumph over tragedy and of betrayal and redemption. All the human condition is here, lovingly and intelligently depicted in a remarkable collection of stories-in-song. Brilliant rhyming and wordplay, great musicianship and haunting tunes you won’t forget! For anyone who has ever wrestled with their home, their heritage and their heart.

 ‘An hour in Cainer’s company is a true pleasure’ The Stage

 ‘Cainer’s songs are heart-rending, delicate, and witty in all the right places’ Daily Express

 ‘Lovingly detailed shaggy dog storytelling’ Time Out

‘Tremendously entertaining. His voice is powerful and versatile, and his lyrics are sometimes like Robin Williams’ rants with delightful rhythms and rhymes.’ Jewish Currents New York

‘An extraordinary performer. His songs are at times heartbreakingly poignant and at others laugh-out-loud funny. Utterly charming, highly recommended’  Edinburgh Festivals Guide

“If Buñuel had been Jewish, born in Leeds and been an admirer of Jake Thackray, this is what he might have sounded like” Alan Bennett

“Some have music in their soul, some have mirth and some have melancholy. That Daniel Cainer has the lot” Howard Jacobson
