Thanks to Niki Tyler in the UK, “The Last One” made its radio debut on the EGH Radio Unsigned Popo Show on Thursday, November 16, 2017. Catch the 2-hour special podcast of new music with international artists, and listen to “The Last One” around the last 25 minutes of the show’s broadcast.
Vote for “The Last One” on Music for the Cause and help raise awareness for the blood disorder community. “The Last One” is a song from the Dim the Lights album, featuring words and music by Prin. The song was written for her stepdaugher (who is also featured in the background vocals along with Tina Rudnick), and has now been used to support anti-bullying efforts, children with cancer, and other special causes, like blood disorders.
It was super exiting news to get accepted to be one of the Rockin’ 1000 for the Andra Day music video for “Rise Up.” I was super bummed when the schedule came out and I was not able to make it due to some unforeseen personal circumstances and prior commitments. However, I hope to join their next project and look forward to playing with them!
Prin will be performing a 30 minute set at The Bitter End in NYC on Sunday, July 10, 2016, featuring songs from the upcoming new album, Dim the Lights. This show will be part of The Bitter End’s songwriting sessions!
“The Sound of Us” is earmarked to be another single off of the upcoming album, Dim the Lights. It features music and lyrics by Prin, piano and vocals by Prin, drums by Doug Yowell, guitars by Thad DeBrock, bass by Jonathan Maron and vocal production by Mark Plati. It was recorded at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn and Alice’s Restaurant in Manhattan. It’s one of my favorite tracks from the album.
The title track single for my upcoming album, Dim the Lights, is now available on iTunes! More new music coming soon from the album!

I truly enjoy arranging songs in my head and don’t typically get the chance to explore production since I work alone as an independent songwriter. Using GarageBand for the first time was very fun and made me realize that it is okay to be a little less “organic” when showcasing my songwriting. When I write piano and vocal tracks only, it is hard for others to hear the genre I intend or the instrumentation I think has potential for a song. This really made me feel good about the upcoming album, too, since people will get to hear why I refer to myself as “genre homeless.”
This song is called “Hiding” and I used a house drum set to create the groove. I did input all of the sounds and tried to take a stab at mixing – lol – eek! For anyone who knows me and my NYC roots, house music is a big influence in my idea of percussion sounds. I think it sounds pretty cool for a first try, and I’m already incorporating the app into my songwriting routines. 🙂
