Coming up on Saturday March 14
William Prince speaks with Terry David Mulligan on Mulligan Stew!
For his eagerly-awaited sophomore album, songwriter William Prince begins with single word, “reliever,” which informs a collection of exceptionally rendered explorations of what, who and how peace is found. Relievers come in all forms; for Prince, it is song. With its emphasis on words and confidently unfussy accompaniment, Reliever puts Prince’s gift for sparking powerful emotions of both personal and communal relevance at the fore. A masterclass in skillful simplicity, Reliever works a generous and profound kind of magic.
Prince’s influences and references, from the gospel of his childhood to the pantheon of classic outlaw country singers, baseball and the great beyond, shape Reliever into a collection that approaches the big questions with humility and curiosity.
Tune in to Mulligan Stew live on CKUA between 5:00 and 7:00 PM MT on Saturday Mar 14 to hear the interview, along with songs from Reliever. Hear the full, uncut conversation with William Prince on the Mulligan Stew podcast at mulliganstew.ca
