Dick Prall has performed at Cafe Paradiso both as a duo with Kristina Priceman (DICKIE, Mike Mangione and the Union) and solo. His performances consistently hit you with his astonishing vocals and masterful songwriting. The experience is absolutely mesmerizing! – Steve Giacomini, Cafe Paradiso
Singer-songwriter and guitarist Dick Prall has a long history of fashioning accessible, viral tunes and inserting them with lilting melodies. He shares with listeners his exploration of subtle symphonies layered over indie-pop melodies, woven with innovative storytelling and set to hypnotic beats. Over the years he has worked with many notable musicians such as Justin Townes Earle, Pat Sansone of Wilco, Grammy award winner Jon Brion and many more. His recordings have capture national and international attention with the beautifully alarming “Weightless” and its single “The Cornflakes Song,” (featuring Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket), garnering radio spins across the country. It also landed a spot on Paste Magazine’s CD compilation for their 2007 year-end issue.
