Artist Update : Dick Prall

Ahhh the smell of newness…

Well, we have a historic election behind us and now the real work begins – preparing rock shows. We’re busting our bootys in getting ready for the next run of shows in December, which entails getting our new drummer, new lead guitar slinger, and new keyboard/sax/guitar/flute/whateverthehellelse player familiar with all the tunes. After only a couple o’ practices, I’ve been leaving rehearsals with a giant smile on my face ‘cuz this configuration is quite the boon. It’s pretty much the pinnacle of talent, and I’m the charmed lad who gets to share the stage with ‘em, folks.

If you’re in the Chicago area, then pop out to the Double Door on December 4th to see the inaugural performance of the new group. And for the Iowa contingency, we’ll be taking our wares to Des Moines’ People’s Court on December 12th and Davenport’s Redstone Room on December 13th. …

Decorah and Des Moines – a message from Dick Prall

I’m winding this summer down with one last stint in Iowa before the leaves make their colorful exodus and I’m able to once again sport my adored scarves, for which I must admit, I have a bit of an odd affection toward. What the fall also brings is a chance for me to begin holing up in the studio every few weeks to pop out a fresh song for your ears to (hopefully) warm up to. I’ll keep you posted when you can hop online and download them.

For the good folks in Decorah, IA and the surrounding area, swing out this Saturday night to hear yours truly open for the Nadas at Marty’s CyberCafe on the Luther College Campus. And for those fine people of Des Moines, I’ll be playing a solo acoustic show at AK O’Connors in Beaverdale on Sunday – your last chance to …

Dick Prall, where are you?

“I’m preparing for the Des Moines show this Saturday night, August 2nd, with The Envy Corps at the Simon Estes Riverfront Amphitheater. Very psyched to see and hear these guys – checked them out online and I’m honestly an instant fan. Extremely talented. Also, on Saturday morning around 9 a.m. I’ll be on WHO TV13 (Des Moines) to have a chat and play a tune. Let’s hope my sleepy voice has worked itself out of me. I’m gearing up to start touring more this fall and looking forward to releasing some new tunes for you all to hear as the months roll into the winter. I hope a new tune each month will keep folks satiated until any further full-length release. And thanks to Coca-Cola for having me on their jukebox for their promo.”

Dick Prall Update

Hello, all… the summer is fairly tame and should continue to be so for a spell. Last year’s summer was full of recording and shows, so I’ve asked the powers that be to allow me a little down time over the next month or so to get my bearings, get back to writing, and to just generally live a brief sloth-like existence.

Folks have been receiving the latest record well and I’m anxious to venture into some new territory/venues this coming fall and to start rolling out what will hopefully be a new record in ’09. I’ve recently become obsessed with ‘70s Paul Simon stuff, baroque music, Imogen Heap, and the Arctic Monkeys (yes, I’m a little late), so who knows what is going to fall out of my head when it comes to writing and recording. Maybe manically orchestrated accessible acoustic pop that works best when driving really fast …
