About Peter Prince

The versatile, intrepid Canadian artist Peter Prince, is based on Salt Spring Island, BC. He has taken his musician’s soul and filmmaker’s eye from the Haida Gwaii to the Himalayas, but his heart is rooted in the natural beauty and culture of the Salish Sea. The breadth of his work includes producing and directing documentary films and composing soundtracks for Film and TV. His award-winning films have aired on networks in over 60 countries. Down-to-earth stories and honest emotion are standards of his craft as he discovers new ways of using media to communicate.

Prince’s brand of Canadian Folk Music has been described as a cross between Cat Stevens and Jack Johnson, but his nomadic spirit offers up a unique twist on the genre. His sound draws inspiration from the Folk traditions of the past, yet in quality and substance this singer-songwriter celebrates the present. A fully fledged expression of his love for song takes flight in his latest release, BORN TO FLY. Sinewy vocals and vivid imagery dance on the rhythms of his acoustic guitar and piano.

He’s created eight albums of original music. ISLAND WAY and PACIFIC DAY are two popular earlier albums of songs. Check out his guitar-led gems of Instrumental Music, CHASING RAINBOWS and LIGHT DANCE.

Prince’s latest documentary film gives voice to the endangered Black Necked Crane and the enlightened conservation initiatives of the tiny kingdom of Bhutan. As Bhutanese farmers strive to save their beloved Crane’s magnificent wetland habitat, his lens captures the Himalayan kingdom’s rugged beauty and vibrant culture. Join the trek to BHUTAN – THE KIND KINGDOM, come discover the heart and mind of a land the world has called, “the last Shangri-La.”
