Today would have been Prince’s 58th birthday

Today would have been Prince’s 58th birthday. His music had the ability to transcend the lines that divide us- age, race, gender, politics, etc. The pulse of all Prince songs throughout his prolific career is the true emotion in their performance and composition.

He played Little Red Corvette hundreds of times, but each time sounded like a new exploration of that sonic story, which is what made seeing him live, even in the largest of venues, an absolutely intimate experience. A master of at least 27 instruments, the man was a singular artist that wrote and performed with his heart.

His talent was unparalleled. There has never been anyone like Prince before nor will there ever be again. We lost a brave soul and a pioneer but we’re joyful that he lived in our time.
