ROCK: Folk Rock, ROCK: Americana
"A Change of Venue" is tuneful, appealing...bristling with hooks and bursting with sweet, inventive harmonies, but doesn't slack off a bit on lyric thoughtfulness and polish" -- Jim Phillips, The Athens News
"Like Ryan Adams and The Wallflowers teaching an extension course on the harmonies of CSNY, the Everly Brothers and Simon and Garfunkel." --Cincinnati City Beat
"Nickel Creek, eat your heart out. The Princes Hollywood are Ohio's answer to the Dixie Chicks." --Ron Goad, Baltimore Songwriters Association
"Earthy sounding folk, ready to be enjoyed by the masses" -- Performer Magazine
"...songs that pleasantly meander, songs that stomp, songs that mine traditional music while still appealing to college crowds...Dalzell and Kinsley are craftsmen. They are musical stylists to the highest degree." -- Randy Surface, The Messenger
"The tunes...live at the crossroads of Americana and pop-rock. It's a road only a few traverse, but one they negotiate earnestly and believably. -- The Columbus Alive
Raised among the rolling hills of Appalachian southeastern Ohio and steeped in the musical traditions of folk, rock, pop, and jazz by their musician families, Tris Kinsley and Harlan Dalzell, The Princes of Hollywood, have come into the twenty-first century as songwriters and performers with a perhaps now quaint sense of earnestness and craft.
The influence of The Kings of Hollywood, Dalzellâs fatherâs former Crosby, Stills and Nash-style group, can be heard in the Princesâ careful vocal harmony, which has drawn obvious comparisons to the Everly Brothers, as well as Simon and Garfunkel. Meanwhile, the Princesâ folk/rock arrangements bring to mind the Gin Blossoms and Ryan Adams as well as more stylized influences such as Lyle Lovett and Van Morrison.
Their first two albums, Moving Slowly (2003) and Direction of Motion (2004), which were self-produced and almost entirely performed by Kinsley and Dalzell, were met with praise and admiration by critics and fellow performers from Ohio to Massachusetts. Their attentive songwriting and live arrangements, including a varying group of backing musicians, have enabled the Princes to share the stage with the likes of the Gabe Dixon Band, Teddy Geiger, Tyler Hilton, Langhorne Slim, Brian Vander Ark (The Verve Pipe), Red Wanting Blue, and Chris Trapper.
The Princesâ new album, A Change of Venue, under the guidance of engineer/producer Eddie Ashworth (Sublime, Izzy Stradlin, John Stewart) and co-producer Chris Trapper (singer/songwriter and frontman of The Push Stars), is a still more developed, consistent and poignant display of the Princesâ meticulous folk/rock songwriting. The album canvases all the Princesâ musical directions, from hummable boot-stompers (âOne More Reasonâ), to quiet, moving contemplations of memories from post-adolescent romance (âAnna Leeâ), to rootsy songs of moving on and self-realization (âLate Septemberâ), with stops at tongue-in-cheek Dixieland (âPretty Outâ), neo-do-wop (âHard Time Songsâ) and even Buddhist country music (âThe Highest Goodâ). The Princes of Hollywood explore and reimagine the far-ranging sounds and influences that make up the canon of Americana music, all while demonstrating the Princesâ lighthearted pessimism, philosophical awareness, and musical prowess.
The release of A Change of Venue marks the departure of an extensive tour, continuing âtil the wheels fall off, so to speak. The Princes of Hollywood will likely as not be headed to your neighborhood, either as a trio consisting of Dalzell, Kinsley and accordionist/vocalist Scott Houchens, as a six-piece folk/rock orchestra, or as something in betweenâin any event, ready to play heartfelt songs with what one fellow musician calls ânice harmonies and just the right amount of abandon.â
