Billy Prince hails from Detroit and was one of the founding members and lead vocalist of the legendary soul group The Precisions.
The story of the Precisions starts back in a Detroit high school when young friends decided to form a vocal group - recording for the local D-Town and Drew labels before recording two singles on Atco. The backing tracks were actually cut by the same musicians (Funk Brothers) as the iconic Motown songs of the era, incredibly lush with huge orchestration, tales of love and heartbreak that could only have originated from the Motor City - all painted with Billy Prince's angelic voice.
The anthemic "If this is love (I'd rather be lonely)", is still a staple in the Northern Soul scene. Billy currently plays around Southern California and his new hometown of San Diego, being backed up by Colemine recording artists the Surefire Soul Ensemble.
"You're My Angel (For Aretha) was co-produced by Jason McGuiness (Empyrean Tones) and John Michael Howcott. John Michael Howcott is a Platinum Music Producer and Songwriter with more that 13 Million Records Sold (RIAA) and 20 Years Experience in the Music Industry. John has Written and Produced Songs for many Artists and Major Record Labels :

Great album. I love especially the second half with tracks like "Come With Me And Fly", "Is There More To Life?", "I Will Never Know", "Peace and Love" - this trip gets better with each track :) Gerrit
