Rivertown Fairytales Preview

by MICHAEL PRINS (folk, blues, countrysoul)



"Michael Prins is one the best songwriters from the Lowlands i came across lately, he reminds me of legendary artists like Tim Hardin, Nick Drake and Richie Havens, his mixture of blues, folk and countrysoul is timeless. What you can hear is the moisture sound of the Dutch delta and the Irish mountains, this music is intriguing like the soundtrack for an imaginary film".

"Sometimes quiet and peaceful, but at the same time there's a twist, a touch of pain and craziness to it, that keeps you wondering and listening to the deeper layers, where at the end of the road there's comfort and consolation again. Michael prins plays his guitar like an African kora, piano like Tom Waits in the early days and he creates layers and soundscapes like Ry Cooders Paris, Texas".

"In the new tradition of songwriters like Ray LaMontagne, Bon Iver and Damien Rice, Michael Prins will find his own way and his own audience, his debut album will be the start of a lifetime musical journey, i'm happy to be there when he takes off"
