Profile Bio Text
Prince Rogers Nelson (born June 7, 1958, in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an American musician. He uses the stage name Prince but has also been known by various other names, among them an unpronounceable symbol and The Artist Formerly Known As Prince.
His career has spanned several styles: from his early material, rooted in R&B, funk, and soul, he has consistently expanded his musical palette throughout his career, absorbing many other genres including New Wave, pop, rock, jazz, and hip hop. The distinctive characteristics of the early-to-mid 1980s work which brought him to super-stardom--including sparse and industrial-sounding drum machine arrangements, and the use of synthesizer riffs to serve the role traditionally occupied by horn riffs in earlier R&B, funk and soul music--was called as the "Minneapolis sound" and has proved very influential.
Prince is a prolific artist, having released several hundred songs both under his own name and with other artists. Regarded by many as a perfectionist, Prince is known for being highly protective of his music. He produces, composes, arranges and performs nearly all of the songs on his albums.
