Musician William Prince melds Indigenous and Christian roots; Boston Marathon is back
Here & Now
Singer-songwriter William Prince has made an impact through his music, both in the U.S. and in Canada where he was born a member of Peguis First Nation. In 2020, Prince released "Gospel First Nation," an album that explores the complicated relationship between Christianity and Indigenous people in Canada. And, it's Marathon Monday in Boston — the first since April of 2019. Reporter Alex Ashlock is near the finish line in downtown Boston and joins us to set the scene.

If you happen to be out of the country or sleeping or bowling with your co-workers you may have missed the first of four outstanding Mulligan Stew Podcasts last weekend. The first was Frazey Ford. Still to come Dan Mangan and Tom Wilson. This week our guest is William Prince. You may have discovered William via his first album Earthly Days (2015) or the follow-up .(2020) His career was just leaving earth's orbit when the pandemic struck. William talks about how his songs take shape, his love of Johnny Cash, Country Charlie Pride, Kris Kristofferson, and the words of his Father about “how you speak – is how people will treat you” And trust me – when I ask William Prince (Peguis Nation) – about the shame in Canada surrounding the Residential School deaths on children pulled from their families, Williams Words will ring through your heart and your head. Ladies and Gentlemen – a speaker of the truth. William Prince
This week we look at Annie's choice of William Prince's 2020 album Reliever. This is a unique selection as neither of us have listened to much of William Price before this review. Selected due to his online appearances including Hayden's Dream Serenade.

William Prince On 'Gospel First Nation'; Cooking With Kids
Here & Now
Singer William Prince talks about his new album "Gospel First Nation." And, with so many children attending school online, it's the perfect time to invite them into the kitchen. Resident chef Kathy Gunst shares three recipes and ideas for bringing kids into the kitchen.
William Prince grew up with the influence of his father's gospel music, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and a deep love of connecting with family. His parents kept music at the forefront of his young life with performing music around the house and through their DJ business. The house was filled with records and music, so William always felt a strong draw to include it in his life. He also felt a pressure to be successful and able to take care of his family, which lead him to planning a career as a doctor. While that plan fell apart, music scooped him up. He focused on songwriting and performing for over a decade before he released his debut album, Earthly Days. Sadly, right before his album came out, his father passed away. He also ended a serious relationship with the woman who would give birth to his son. All of those major life events certainly impacted the writing for his latest album, Reliever. Even when he had been going through extremely hard times, William said “I had the faith for a better time. That’s all hope really is: borrowing from a time that things will be better." This led him to be more vulnerable in his writing and in many ways put him on the path toward healing.William is fairly serious and soft-spoken in his answers, but he is so open about his experience. I especially appreciated his willingness to talk about becoming comfortable in his physical body. We also talk about the experience of growing up and attending high school on a reserve. His family moved from Selkirk, Manitoba to The Peguis First Nation when he was 12 years old. There he discovered all this family he had never known before. He has this lovely rhythm to his speech and I totally meant to ask him about it, but forgot in the middle. All I can say is listen to the rhythm in the way he talks and enjoy! Also I'm pleased to mention that for the very first time, William talks about his next album that will be out before the end of this godforsaken year!
We’re sharing the full conversation Mike had a couple of months ago with acclaimed singer-songwriter William Prince, which formed the basis for our July/August issue's cover story. There's a lot that didn’t make it into the article, so we’re thrilled to be able to share it here. It’s a very wide ranging conversation that spans almost William’s entire life, from his musical upbringing with his minister/singer father in Peguis First Nation, studying to become a doctor while finding more happiness in music, developing his exceptional songwriting acumen, breaking into the music industry, making his albums, the pressure he feel as an Indigenous songwriter to write political songs, and a lot more. http://canadianmusician.com

Winnipeg singer, songwriter William Prince has released his second album Reliever. How far has he come from the first album Earthly Days and its great single Breathless? Feature appearance on CBS Saturday Morning. Feature article in Rolling Stone. Now touring Europe and America. While writing the songs, for Reliever, he lost his Father but became a Dad. Even though William can trace his heritage back to Chief Peguis he doesn’t want his music to be judged as First nations – just judged as great songs. Period!
