Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Pringle first played the piano. He also enjoyed singing, and joined the children's chorus of The Canadian Opera Company in 1954 and began to sing professionally. In the 1960's Pringle moved from Toronto to New York City where, among my other activites, he began studying the classical lute with theremin cellist Leonid Bolotine. He quickly discovered that he could finance his exotic musical interests through mainstream popular songwriting. Pringle then went to India to study the surbahar.
Pringle resided in several different countries over the next few years, financing his travels through songwriting and filmscoring. Because of his love/hate relationship with the spotlight, he would often work under assumed names. At that time, he collaborated with some of the most famous and successful songwriters in the business. He moved to L.A. in 1975, signed a deal with Warner Records and released his self-titled debut album in 1976.
Pringle remained in L.A. for five years but felt creatively stifled so in 1980 he moved to Montreal, signed a deal with A & M RECORDS and continued putting out LP's. He also signed to a television deal for several specials while in Quebec.
After singing with everyone from (a young) Celine Dion to Nana Mouskouri to Petula Clark, Pringle By grew tired of singing pop music, so he changed direction by writing a one-man show based on the life and work of the late British playwright, actor and singer Sir Noel Coward. This play, starring Pringle, called NOEL COWARD: A PORTRAIT occupied the next few years of his life. He performed hundreds of shows all over the world including an exclusive engagement at the White House for US President George Bush Sr. and Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney as well as a Royal Engagement for the Royal Family in England.
Next Pringle did another one-man show, this time in French based on the "Song Of Songs" (Le Cantique Des Cantiques or "Shir haShirim") of the Old Testament. The work was based on the interpretations of the late Alexandrian-born French cabalist Carlo Suares. The texts were by the French lyricist Laurence Musy. Pringle accompanied myself on a variety of different instruments including lute and the harp.
In 1996 Pringle decided to retire from public performing, but after taking up the Theramin, found himself back on the concert stage many times accompanied by symphony orchestras. - Eva Johnson.
