John Prine(born October 10, 1946) is anAmericancountry folksinger-songwriter. He has been active as a composer, recording artist, and live performer since the early 1970s, and is known for an often humorous style of country music that has elements ofprotestand social commentary.

Born and raised inMaywood, Illinois, Prine learned to play the guitar at the age of 14. He attended classes at Chicago'sOld Town School of Folk Music.After serving inWest Germanywith the U.S. armed forces, he moved toChicagoin the late 1960s, where he worked as a mailman, writing and singing songs as a hobby.

A member of Chicago'sfolk revival, he was discovered byKris Kristofferson, resulting in the production of Prine'sself-titled debut albumwithAtlantic Recordsin 1971. After receiving critical acclaim, Prine focused on his musical career, recording three more albums for Atlantic. He then signed toAsylum Records, where he recorded an additional three albums. In 1984 he co-foundedOh Boy Records, an independent record label with which he would release most of his subsequent albums. After his battle withsquamous cell cancerin 1998, Prine's vocals deepened into a gravelly voice.

Widely cited as one of the most influential songwriters of his generation, Prine is known for humorous lyrics about love, life, and current events, as well as serious songs with social commentary, or which recollect melancholy tales from his life.

In 1971 Prine'sself-titled debut albumwas released. He and friend Steve Goodman had each been active in theChicagofolk scene before being "discovered" byKris Kristofferson(Kristofferson remarked that Prine wrote songs so good that "we'll have to break his thumbs"). The album included his signature songs "Illegal Smile," "Sam Stone," and the folk and country standards "Angel from Montgomery" and "Paradise." The album also featured "Hello In There," a song about aging that was later covered by numerous artists, and "Far From Me", a lonely waltz about lost love for a waitress that Prine later said was his favorite of all his songs. The album received many positive reviews, and some hailed Prine as "the next Dylan."Bob Dylanhimself appeared unannounced at one of Prine's firstNew York Cityclub appearances, anonymously backing him on harmonica.

It's worth an google search to learn more about this important and talented man's life and career and to see what others ask for his signed photographs.
