Billy Prine & The Prine Time Band
Billy Prine (the younger brother of John Prine) formed and led his first bar band in Chicago at the tender age of twelve. Chicago in the 1960s and early 1970s was wide open, just as FM radio was evolving, with all types of music, especially the blues from the famed Chess Records and country music with the National Barn Dance, which was a precursor to the Grand Ole Opry. Growing up in such a rich musical city allowed Billy to develop his unique style of American roots music and absorb a myriad of influences firsthand by seeing Buck Owens and the Buckaroos, The Rolling Stones, and Chicago’s innumerable blues legends such as Howlin’ Wolf, Paul Butterfield, Muddy Waters, Michael Bloomfield, and many more.
Billy crafted his performing and songwriting in Nashville as the new millennium arrived and led into the 2010s. This led to Billy’s new record, “A Place I Used To Know,” released on July 10, 2020, and produced by Michael Dinallo. The podcast Prine Time will feature various tracks from the EP and is sure to knock your socks off!
