Guided by a practical yet profound gratitude, William Prince’s songs convey the power of
wonder and humility. A masterclass in skillful simplicity, Prince’s songwriting is grounded in a
balance between the personal and the universal, his own moments of self-discovery and the
larger questions we face together. Prince offers what’s true for himself in whatever way it is
helpful. Grace is not a final state but a process.
Stand in the Joy is a declaration of joy. Grounded in the strength to stand in the goodness of
what you have, the new songs fights to give joy and happiness a chance. Produced by Dave
Cobb and recorded in Savannah, GA, the album balances William Prince’s noted baritone in
a lush, warm atmosphere.
Prince has also built a collection of memorable collaborations with many of Canada’s most
esteemed artists, including Buffy Sainte-Marie, The Tragically Hip and Serena Ryder along
the way. Prince’s career trajectory is marked by accolades and milestones: an opening slot
for Neil Young, a JUNO Award, a Tiny Desk and a return to the studio with Grammy winning
producer Dave Cobb. With meaningful, impactful appearances on national broadcasts
honouring icons and amplifying crucial conversations alike, Prince has taken up his
deserved place on the national stage.
