ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After launching a successful musical career with New England jam-band juggernaut Rane, Prindle, a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, has recently penned and recorded his first solo collection of songs. The album, Where You Land, is a contemplative but accessible exploration of pop-rock song forms. Prindle's varied influences can be heard throughout as the album's moods range from the experimental ambience of Radiohead to the jazz-inflected funk of Steely Dan to the straightforward pop-rock of Billy Joel.

Prindle is an experienced performer and recording artist, having shared the stage and the studio with a diverse collection of commercially and critically successful artists. He began his career with Rane, an award-winning rock ensemble who, in addition to becoming a success in their own right, opened for such acts as The Allman Brothers Band, The Jerry Garcia Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Wilco, Rusted Root, and Santana. After working with Rane, Prindle became a freelancer, playing bass and cello with artists like Simon Kirke (of Free, Bad Company, and Ringo Starr's All-Star Band), Kurtis John (of The Last Goodnight), Jennifer Hartswick (of the Trey Anastasio Band), Sean Kelly (of the Samples), and Rex Fowler (of Aztec Two-Step). His innovative and tasteful cello playing can be heard on recordings from innumerable artists, notably Frank Black (of the Pixies) and Mark Mulcahy. Dan appears on several tracks on Mulcahy's 2005 release, In Pursuit of Your Happiness, an album that Thom Yorke of Radiohead called the best of that year.

Prindle is also a successful songwriter and composer. His style ranges from classically influenced chamber music to pop-rock songs, and he has been equally successful in both genres. His portfolio includes works for a variety of ensembles including chamber ensembles, choir, accompanied solo vocalists, and symphony orchestra. His works have been given well received performances by various ensembles in southern New England. This November, just days before the release of Where You Land, his one-act opera A Charming Affair will be premiered by the Hartford Opera Theater. As a songwriter, Prindle was a regular contributor to Rane's prolific output, which featured seven full-length albums and one EP in an eight-year period. Eric Danton, writing for the Hartford Courant, referred to Rane as "one of New England's most innovative bands," and the Northeast Performer praised the quality of Rane's songs, despite the fact that most jam bands focus primarily on the live experience, noting that "many bands are either good songwriters or seasoned performers, but rarely are they both. Rane can be counted in that group." Similarly, Mike Greenhaus noted the band's impressive live shows, but still described their music as being "complete with catchy hooks and radio-ready choruses." Where You Land, produced by Alan Veniscofsky of Rane, promises to be equally successful with its similar combination of depth and accessibility.
