William Prince approaches the big questions with humility and curiosity, and his songwriting is a masterclass in skillful simplicity. Since his JUNO Award win in 2017, Prince’s momentum has continued to build, with each new album adding depth and dimension to an exceptional body of work that has received international acclaim. From national network television appearances, top tier media coverage and performances at major international festivals, William Prince has become one of the country’s most respected and celebrated songwriters.
The upcoming stop in the Okanagan will see him perform as part of the Route97 Culture Road Trip Series. The series is designed to foster Canadian talent while promoting the B.C. Interior ‘route 97 highway’ from Penticton to Salmon Arm as a viable touring corridor.
In addition to his JUNO Award win in 2017 for Indigenous Music Album of the Year and other JUNO nominations, William Prince has also won two Canadian Folk Music Awards. A powerful folk and country singer-songwriter from Winnipeg, Manitoba, his most recent studio album, 2020’s Gospel First Nation, saw him record an album of country gospel songs.
