Musical Disclosure by Perform School of music Episode 82

Here we are for a new week exploring the protagonists of music over the past decades. In the upcoming appointments, let's talk about Prince.


Here we are for a new week of exploring the protagonists of music over the past decades. In the next three appointments, we'll focus on a true icon, both musical and beyond.

 

Prince Rogers Nelson was born and raised in a musical environment: his father was a pianist and composer, while his mother was a jazz singer. From a young age, Prince demonstrated innate musical talent, writing his first song, "Funk Machine," at the age of just seven. In 1978, at the incredible age of 20, Prince signed a contract with Warner Bros. His first album, "For You," was released in the same year and already showcased his eclectic talent, with Prince writing, arranging, and recording all the instruments on the album. The success of "For You" led him to release his second album, simply titled "Prince" (1979), which received good critical acclaim and sales. To promote the album, Prince formed a backing band, The Revolution, and embarked on a tour as the opening act for Rick James. The release of the album "Dirty Mind" in 1980 marked a radical change in Prince's look and image, adopting an androgynous and provocative image, which, as always in such cases, elicited mixed reactions from both the public and critics. In 1982, the double album "1999" was released, definitively establishing Prince as one of the most innovative and influential figures in contemporary music. The album allowed Prince to break racial barriers and reach a global audience. Throughout the decade, Prince continued to experiment and reinvent himself, consolidating his status as a pop music icon.

 

Today's listening is "1999"!
