By
Carole Warren

William Prince

My Playlist with William Prince

William Prince, the Juno award-winning singer and songwriter with the baritone voice as smooth and velvet. The 2017 Juno awards was a good one for William Prince: he delivered a stunning performance of Breathless, took home the hardware for Contemporary Roots Album and secured a record deal. This should come as no surprise when you consider the musical influences that he grew up around. William's father was a preacher and musician, and the family owned a small DJ business. His debut album Earthly Days is definitely a labour of love... it took nearly 10 years to complete. But, it was all worth it because this folk singer from Peguis First Nation is certainly on the international rise. Take a listen as William Prince shares a heartfelt playlist of music filled with important anecdotes, memories and moments.
