Writing songs since the age of thirteen, he produced and played all the instruments on his father Ed Prince’s acclaimed gospel album “…it’s Supper Time” at the age of fifteen. The two went on two record two more albums “On Christmas Day” and “Won’t That Be A Morning!” for Arbor Records and Sunshine Records, respectively, in Winnipeg.Prince gained nationwide attention writing music for a CMT reality show and later went on to write songs for Jason Kirkness’ debut album Life On The Road, which scored three top 20 singles on Canadian country radio.
To this day, he is still an active member of the First Nations supergroup Indian City. Their albums Supernation and Colors have received international acclaim and numerous Indigenous Music Awards.
Now more focused than ever, Prince is set to release his debut album, produced by long-time collaborator Scott Nolan, on December 7, 2015 with guest Richard Inman.
