Tané McClure (born June 8, 1958) is an American singer and actress.

McClure was born in Los Angeles County, California[1] and raised in Hawaii. She is the daughter of actor Doug McClure.[2] She sang in a Latin jazz band, Sweet Honesty, in the mid-1970s, and moved to San Francisco towards the end of the decade. Soon after, she met The Babys and Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain, whom she married. Moving with him to Los Angeles, she landed a record deal in 1982 and released a self-titled album on RCA Records. Cain wrote the Journey hit 'Faithfully' for her. Often compared to Pat Benatar, she disliked the comparison, preferring to identify herself with idol Grace Slick.[3] "Danger Zone" was the first single, which did not chart, but the second, "Holdin' On", peaked at #37 on the Billboard Hot 100.[4] The album did not sell as well as the label had hoped (peaking at #121 on the Billboard Pop Albums chart),[5] and she was dropped, never to release another album. In 1984, she appeared on The Terminator soundtrack on three songs, which were credited as "Tahnee Cain & Tryanglz". She continued to give concerts in the Los Angeles area into the 1990s, where she eventually transitioned into film.
