Recently signed to Glassnote Records, William Prince is a JUNO Award-winning singersongwriter
whose music is full of emotionally charged experiences that linger in memories.
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. His biggest inspirations include
Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Charley Pride, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and most
significantly, his preacher and musician father.
Recorded in just ten days throughout 2015, William alongside producer/collaborator Scott Nolan,
created his full-length debut album, Earthly Days. He garnered honours such as “Aboriginal Artist
of the Year” at the 2016 Western Canadian Music Awards and “Contemporary Roots Album of
the Year” at the 2017 JUNO Awards. In a full circle moment, he inducted Bruce Cockburn into the
Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame and earned praise from not just Cockburn, but fellow
inductee Neil Young.
Lead by debut single “Breathless,” 2018 will see William boldly take the next step of his journey
with Earthly Days being released worldwide.
