William Prince is a singer/songwriter from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Raised on the Peguis First Nation Indian reservation, William Prince is quickly establishing himself in the music industry with his unique style of gritty, baritone vocals and songs that blend elements of folk, country and pop.
“Acoustic guitar and amazing vocals [with] songs such as “Keep You,” “Meant for Me,” and “Young Romantics” that would pluck at anyone’s heartstrings. Princes’ deep voice, joking yet somber attitude and solid black attire [give] the impression of a modern day Johnny Cash."
William Prince is no stranger to the stage or the methods behind crafting quality music. Picking up the guitar at 13, Prince was the lead guitar player of for his father, renowned gospel singer Ed Prince (…it’s Supper Time/On Christmas Day). Writing songs since the age of fifteen, Prince went on to study towards a career in medicine while still playing solo acoustic shows throughout Manitoba.
Dubbed “the real deal and far beyond his years” (Billy the Kid), Prince has plans on releasing music that will cement himself as a force to be reckoned with in the Canadian music scene. Ambiguous tales of love gone awry with a touch of humor and hope for things to come comprise his repertoire of songs.
His music earnest and expectant, if a little weatherworn and weary, Winnipeg-based songwriter and performer Scott Nolan has earned the esteem his works have rendered. Some have called him noteworthy, even acclaimed - but the smart money cites Nolan as a voice rarely heard this side of the century, a musician who shrugs away any five-dollar-cover singer-songwriter motifs before he unsnaps his guitar case. His are the songs sung for people with a past, sturdily backlit with unswerving musicianship and a disposition rooted in the best of rock n' roll, roots and Americana.
Born in Toronto and raised in Winnipeg, Nolan hasn't been without an instrument in his hands as far back as he can remember. His efforts in several bands, including Leaderhouse and Motel 75, soon directed him toward a strong solo career that has secured him a place in the ranks of the country's finest songwriters and performers.
