With his first single, “Oasis”, doing well on radio, Prangley has just released his first EP "Where It Begins” last week.
I chatted to the Prangley post-event.
Learning to roll with the punches as every aspect of what we thought we knew is being continuously disrupted and finding your way to contribute to this ever-changing world.
I don’t think I’ll ever properly retire. My brain is busy and I’m always up to something. I very seldomly just sit down and do nothing; I get bored very easily.
Music is a way of expressing myself and sharing my emotions.
I turn everyday situations into melodic stories that people can relate to.
Producing a piece of music I’ve written as well as performing it. The feeling of bringing your music to life is incredible.
At this stage, “Green Eyes”. I love the way the crowd interacts with the song as they “hey” along with me.
Nothing beats that awkward voice crack; the joys of being a teenager!
My guitar and, recently, a close second, my piano.
A milkshake; a good ol’ chocolate milkshake.
Grounded, ambitious, creative, witty, loving.
Matthew Mole, Jeremy Loops, Johnny Clegg.
“Breathing”, which is on my debut EP. It was the song that I first played for my producer and sparked this incredible and exciting journey.
Vibe; everything’s a vibe.
To see the northern lights.
Releasing my music for the world to hear.
It’s heights for sure.
Doing what I love every day. Making, writing, producing and performing music. Waking up on a Monday morning and being excited for the day.
Stand with my legs crossed (as seen on the cover of “Where It Begins”). May seem awkward but is actually surprisingly comfortable.
To treat everyone around me with some form of respect. I’ve learnt not to judge anyone based on first impressions without having any knowledge of the person. We never know what someone is going through. Sadly, we live in a very judgmental society.
Yes, I do. We raise money for a charity that provides for a home of safety for abused and abandoned babies and toddlers.
That my music will reach people far beyond the borders of South Africa. To continue to have the privilege to do what I do.
