Interview with PensEyeView.com

Maurice Pringle, a musician’s musician, is the kind of artist that doesn’t need millions of people picking up his albums – he knows he has the respect and admiration of not just his peers, but folks who really get the blues (and remarkable guitar ability). Pringle has been in the business for some time, playing with some of the best Blues has to offer and backing up some huge acts in the process.

Pringle describes his sound as “power blues”. It’s a “mixture of the soulfulness of the past with the passion of the present. My cultural connection and deep appreciation and respect for the artists that came before me makes me stand out over other in this genre.” Not only that… but this guy can play! Check out his YouTube videos for a few minutes of proof!

And don’t forget to check out Maurice’s MySpace page – you’ll hear more of what the man is talking about. Finally (and understandably so), he’s gotten some recognition from some musical companies (such as Simple Amps), so you’ll see him out in support. There’s more below, so keep reading for the answers to the XXQ’s.

 

XXQs: Maurice Pringle

PensEyeView.com (PEV): How would you describe your sound and what do you feel makes you stand out over the others in your genre?

Maurice Pringle (MP): I would describe my sound as power blues.  A mixture of the soulfulness of the past with the passion of the present.  My cultural connection and deep appreciation and respect for the artists that came before me makes me stand out over other in this genre.

 

PEV: How did you first get started in music?   

MP: When I was 14, I got a job at a music store named Rondo Music, in New Jersey. It was a staple for many local musicians. For a 14 year, it was a crash course on a musician’s life. Though my experiences there, I learned from many great musicians and it forged me into the musician I am today.

 

PEV: What can fans expect from a live Maurice Pringle show? 

MP: Good vocals, better guitar,  200%

 

PEV: What is the first thing that comes to mind when you step on stage? 

MP: Really, only the audience. 

 

PEV: What is your creative process like when you sit down to work on a song? 

MP: A song usually starts out with a guitar riff or a melody.  My lyrics are reflective of what’s deepest and closest to my heart.

 

PEV: What was the underlining inspiration for your music? Where do  get your best ideas for songs?

MP: The best ideas for a song comes from living life itself. People are great inspirations.

 

PEV: Thinking back to when you first started out, do you ever look back at your career and think about your earlier days and how you’ve arrived where you are today?  

MP: Of course I do. If you don’t know where you’ve been, you won’t know where you’re going.

 

PEV: Was there a certain point in your life when you knew that music was going to be a career for you?  

MP: When I was 13 years old, at a family cookout, my sister’s babysitter hired an old blues man to play sing and play guitar. I remember he had a beat up 5 string guitar and played with slide. I stood in front of that old man all day.  I knew then, that’s what I wanted to do.  See, it wasn’t about the gear, it was about the music. The sorrow and love in his voice. The way he made that beat up guitar wail and moan. I knew then that I wanted to spend the rest of my life making people feel, the way that old man make me and my family feel that night. 

 

PEV: What one word best describes Maurice Pringle?

MP: Honest.

 

PEV: How is life for you in the music world? Best and worst parts?

MP: It’s a hard life.  People can make your dreams come true are they can your life a nightmare. You have to love the music and love being a musician.

 

PEV: Is there one area you wish you could travel around and play  that you have not yet?   

MP: I would love to tour New Orleans or Mississippi.

 

PEV: How have all your friends and family reacted to your career?  What’s it like when you get to play at your hometown?  

MP: My friends and family have been extremely supportive.

 

PEV: What can we find you doing in your spare time, aside from playing/writing music?   

MP: I love performing Martial Arts and cooking is a great passion of mine.

 

PEV: Name one present and past artist or group that would be your dream collaboration? Why?

MP: Of course I would love to work with Jimi Hendrix. What guitarist wouldn’t?

 

PEV: If you weren’t playing music now what do you think each of you would be your career?

MP: PC technician or Chef…

 

PEV: So, what is next for Maurice Pringle?

MP: I’m promoting companies that I was blessed to get support from.  I want to tour and collaborate with musicians around the world.  Hopefully, I’ll be performing in the spring in Shanghai, with Carlton J.
