Tommy Prine was born in Nashville TN, the youngest son of Fiona Whelan and John Prine. Atage 10, having observed his Dad’s playing, he picked up an acoustic guitar that was biggerthan him and just started picking a melody. He later took lessons to refine his skills but retains his own unique style of fingerpicking.
Over the years Tommy has played many big stages with his Dad – from the Ryman to Bonoroo and Red Rocks CO.
Tommy started writing songs as a teenager but decided just 2 years ago to put all his energy and focus into writing, playing and performing.In July of this year he is excited to make his first full length album with Rustin Kelly and GenaJohnson as co-producers.
Tommy earned a B.BA in Music Business from Belmont University in 2021. He lives in East Nashville with his girlfriend Savannah, their cat Papoose and rescue dogMaggie.
Peter Holsapple’s first five decades in the music business have provided the world at large with a raft of memorable song craft, recordings of taste and originality, and travels with some of the finest musicians performing. Holsapple has navigated a sure but snaky course through the annals of modern power pop with quality tunes like The dB’s “Love Is For Lovers” or Continental Drifters’ “Invisible Boyfriend.” His versatility on keyboards and stringed instruments has made him the go-to auxiliary live addition for groups like R.E.M. and Hootie and the Blowfish. Peter has recorded with Indigo Girls, the Bangles, Giant Sand, the Cowsills, the Chills, Juliana Hatfield, Todd Snider and dozens of other artists. He’s played the Apollo Theatre and the Ryman Auditorium. His songs have been played and recorded by Marti Jones, Don Dixon, the Troggs, Claire Lynch, Nada Surf, Bully, the Golden Palominos, Foster & Lloyd and Megafaun. Holsapple was a charter member of the songwriter collective podcast Radio Free Song Club. He was musical director for three important shows at The Arts at St. Ann’s in Brooklyn NY. His 2019 solo release Game Day and 2021’s acoustic record with Chris Stamey, Our Back Pages (both on Omnivore Recordings) have gotten incredible reviews. Holsapple’s music writing has been published in the New York Times’ online songwriting blog Measure for Measure and Talkhouse, as well as in several anthologies. Peter is grateful for the many opportunities he has enjoyed and looks forward to more soon.
