William Prince
 
 

William Prince is a Juno nominated storytelling singer/songwriter from Peguis First Nation. William sidesteps clichés to provoke thought and facilitate discovery. His baritone vocals pay tribute to his late father and his genuine delivery acknowledges the hundreds of hours he’s spent on stage. Prince’s debut album, Earthly Days, produced by long-time collaborator Scott Nolan, was released in December 2015 to critical acclaim and features Juno-winner Lynn Miles.

A founding member of the aboriginal collaborative Indian City, Prince helped release two albums which garnered him the Aboriginal Songwriter of the Year award at the 2014 Indigenous Music Awards.

Stepping out on his own as a country-folk singer-songwriter, his lead single “The Carny” hit Number 1 on Sirius XM’s National Aboriginal Music Countdown Top 40 in November of 2015 (Produced by NCI FM).

 

 

 

2016 saw Prince opening for the likes of Amelia Curran, Susan Aglukark, Marty Stuart and Buffy Saint-Marie while holding his own on numerous folk festival stages alongside acts such as Ryan Adams, Sam Roberts and Colin James. Rounding out a year of travel with two nominations at the Canadian Folk Music Awards (Contemporary Singer of the Year and Aboriginal Artist of the Year) and a WCMA win for Aboriginal Artist of the Year, Prince has his sights
set on touring in 2017.
