Cain tours during the summer with Journey which includes over 25 thousand miles of touring the country on a tour bus and 50 shows playing to about a half million people. He has toured with the new line up of Journey including new lead vocalist Arnel Pineda and drummer Deen Castronovo since 1998. Along with founding members Neal Schon and Ross Valory, they have played over 400 shows since they got together as a band. "Touring is a powerful way of taking your music to the people" he says.
In 2006 Jonathan added Winemaker to his CV as he partnered with Healdsburg winemaker Dennis De La Montanya to release several wines to benefit Bay Area children's charities. 100% of the proceeds are donated and, to date, the sale of those wines have raised more than $40,000 for chartiy.
In 2008, Cain, De La Montanya, and a third partner Daryl Groom launched Finale Wines in order to blend the arts of music and wine making. Jonathan brings his same passion, patience, and dedication to this venture as he does to his music and songwriting.
