Norwich Career: Under-13s (1997/98)
Current Club:
Date of Birth:  
Nationality: English


Kane Robinson, a centre-forward from East Ham, played for the Under-13s in 1997/98. Previously with Chelsea at the age of 11, Kane abandoned football for his other love - music. At 15, he, now renamed Kano, was making music in his bedroom and MC'ing on the pirate station Déjà Vu with the fabled Nasty Crew. In 2004, following a tour with his friend and mentor Mike Skinner aka The Streets (Kano guested on the single "Fit But You Know It"), he won the Best Newcomer award at the Urban Music Awards. This January, after signing a deal with 679 records, also home to The Streets, he was featured in the BBC's sounds of 2005 list, compiled by 100 broadcasters and critics, alongside the Kaiser Chiefs and Bloc Party. Not your steortyped DJ hoodlum, Kano passed his GSCEs and has an A level in graphic design.

His music is of the "grime" style, which Dizzee Rascal introduced to the masses, but has more elements of rock and reggae that makes it more accessible. His first album Home Sweet Home came out in September 2005.
