Canadian folk and country singer-songwriter William Prince announces headline Dublin show

The music of William Prince unfurls like a classic campfire story, midnight road trip conversation, or well-worn, dog-eared novel passed down through generations. Each line delivered in his dusky baritone evokes a journeyman, troubadour spirit buoyed by stained glass soul with the gusto to reach steeple-size heights. Given this emotional heft, it makes sense that the art form bears a metaphysical significance for the JUNO Award-winning singer and songwriter.

Born and raised on the Peguis First Nation of Manitoba, Canada, William has been honing his craft since the age of nine when he first picked up the guitar and piano. Counting Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Charley Pride, Merle Haggard, and Willie Nelson (as well as books like April Raintree and Fahrenheit 451) among chief influences, he ultimately cites his preacher and musician father as the biggest inspiration. “My whole life I listened to my dad’s deep voice singing gospel,” he says. “In a sense, I make folk-country tunes inside of a gospel framework. It can be really powerful, but it brings a calm.”

In 2018 William took the next step of his journey with Earthly Days released worldwide via his new record label, Glassnote Records, and publishing company, Kobalt. In 2019 he signed with Six Shooter Management, expanding his professional reach even further. Six Shooter Records re-released Earthly Days in Canada in June 2019.
