John Prine Background

Born into a musical family in Maywood, Illinois, John Prine picked up a guitar at the age of 14. His grandfather played guitar for Merle Travis - the country-western star. Evidently, Prine inherited his grandfather's guitar-picking talents. By the time his 20s arrived and following a short stint in the Army, Prine relocated to the Windy City and became ensconced in Chicago's folk music scene. His style and sound eventually attracted the attention of Kris Kristofferson, who helped Prine land a record deal. In 1971, Prine's eponymous album hit the shelves. It includes the critically acclaimed tune, "Sam Stone." Although the album was lauded by critics, it never garnered much commercial success. His follow-up albums experienced the same thing. They were: Diamonds in the Rough (1972) and Sweet Revenge (1973). Two years later, Prine issued Common Sense. The album served up a bolder sound than they were used to with his music. The album's linchpin was the coveted song, "Come Back to Us Barbara Lewis Hare Krishna Beauregard." It managed to crack the Billboard 100. Prine's career has continued along the same course - drawing a loyal fan base but never making enormous commercial success. Prine has managed to soldier on, proving his ability to adapt to change. He was dropped from Asylum Records in the early '80s but brushed himself off and started his own recording venture, Oh Boy Records. In 1991, his Grammy-winning LP The Missing Years arrived, which featured guest artists like Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, among others. The album went on to sell over 250,000 copies.

In more recent years, Prine has held down a steady recording career. Fair and Square (2005) claimed a Grammy Award for best contemporary folk album. Two years later, Standard Songs for Average People dropped, which was cut with Mac Wiseman (guitarist). The album boasts a collection of country and folk music classics. And, in 2010, Prine released In Person and On Stage, a live performance collection of his tunes.


John Prine Albums

John Prine is a composer, recording artist and live performer who has impressed fans, critics and his musical peers alike. In fact, folk music icon Bob Dylan stated that Prine was one of his favorite writers in an interview with The Huffington Post. He said, "Prine's stuff is pure Proustian existentialism. Midwestern mind trips to the nth degree. And he writes beautiful songs. I remember when Kris Kristofferson first brought him on the scene. All that stuff about 'Sam Stone,' the soldier junkie daddy, and 'Donald and Lydia,' where people make love from ten miles away. Nobody but Prine could write like that."

John Prine has a number of albums that feature these eclectic songs that Dylan references, including: John Prine (1971); Diamonds in the Rough (1972); Sweet Revenge (1973); Common Sense (1975); Prime Prine: The Best of John Prine (1976); Bruised Orange (1978); Pink Cadillac (1979); Storm Windows (1980); Aimless Love (1984); German Afternoons (1986); John Prine Live (1988); The Missing Years (1991); Great Days: The John Prine Anthology (1993); A John Prine Christmas (1993); Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings (1995); Live on Tour (1997); In Spite of Ourselves (1999); Souvenirs (2000); Fair & Square (2005); Standard Songs For Average People (2007); In Person & On Stage (2010); and Singing Mailman Delivers (2011).

And, in June 2010, a tribute album was released by Oh Boy Records called, Broken Hearts and Dirty Windows: The Songs of John Prine. The album features members on the forefront of today's folk music scene, including: The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Josh Ritter, Drive-By Truckers, Justin Townes Earle, Nickel Creek's Sara Watkins, My Morning Jacket, Deer Tick featuring Liz Isenberg, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, Those Darlins and more!
