Dick Prall defies musical categories

Jul 27, 2015

In this encore episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," host Ben Kieffer catches up with Chicago based singer-songwriter Dick Prall. 

Listen in below to the interesting tales Prall weaves with song. 

Dodging in and out of pop ditties, lilting melodies, and quirky song structures, Dick Prall’s inability to stay in one musical place is reflective in a body of work that mirrors his personality: youthfully distracted and sweetly cynical. 

He puts great care into fashioning accessible and viral songs, inserting them with content that, if you look beyond the hooks, shows you a landscape filled with unsavory characters, and a decent dose of thoughtfulness.  You could label him a storyteller—one who leaves you happily singing along to tales of serial murder and roadside sex long after you’ve tucked away your ear buds.
