Blues, honky tonk, and melancholic country is what the audience can expect when Chris Comper hits the stage as PRINZ GRIZZLEY.
It is a mix of Austrian alpine culture expressed through the sounds of Americana. Heartbreak, loneliness, and melancholy are universal experiences that just happen to be enhanced by a certain honky-tonk swing, the sound of a pedal steel guitar, or a voice from someone who has just seen too much.
Prinz Grizzley has released an EP (“Wide Open Country”) and a debut LP (“Come on in”). He performed at European festivals and toured in Ireland, England, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. He also played at Kilkenny Roots Festival (2 sold-out shows)on SXSW in Austin, Texas and Americanafest in Nashville and was support act for Seasick Steve on the whole UK and Europe tour in 2018.
