Artist Biography

Gene started as a drummer at 11, joining the musicians union at 13. He soon realized that he wanted to write music and unless it was going to be an endless drum solo, he needed to learn another instrument. One of the advantages of playing with good players was that if you wanted to learn a new instrument, there were endless opportunities to have them show you. 45 years later, Gene plays pretty well any instrument.





Today Gene spends his time writing and recording music as well as jamming with a few friends. 
High on Gene's bucket list is to chart a song where he wrote, recorded and produced it himself in his home studio.

Press Release
 
 
Gene Pringle
 
Listening to Gene’s music, it doesn’t take long to forget you’re listening to one person. All the writing, all the production, vocals, mix etc.  A unique experience where the final product is as close to the original vision as is possible. Gene brings a lifetime of experience to this CD.
A professional press writer would talk about all the people Gene played with and the places he played, the fact he joined a band to be the keyboard player without ever playing keyboards before, and 2 weeks later playing a large arena gig. but all thats really important is the new music and the stories they tell.
14 tracks covering a wide range of music from the guitar oriented full tilt to the soft piano and strings, retro to pusing the limits.
