Biography

Princess is a band of brothers and friends. They come together as a unit to play good, old fashion rock and roll with a dark side. There music is cultivated from that which meant to be hidden; a box of secrets filled with all their personal experiences and maybe that evil clown that haunted a childhood.

Lead singer and guitarist Jacob Warner believes good music transcends genre. Not a classically trained musician, Jacob pulls his inspiration from many great musicians like Love and Rockets, U2 and Depeche Mode. “They have become fast friends,” he says of his band mates, “I am proud to make music with them.”

C3 brings an extended range bass to the mix. His 9 string is tuned down to a low F#. His showmanship doesn’t end there. When not worshiping at the alter of Tony Levin, he finds influences from Geddy Lee of Rush and Chris Squire of Yes. C3 may certainly show up in a cape. He will melt your face in a way Nickleback never could. “I consider them my family,” C3 says about the members of Princess, “They keep me in check and I cannot imagine my life without them.”

With eclectic historical and modern musical roots from all around the world, Dray is likely to be listening to Robert Johnson delta blues master, Swedish experimental metal Meshuggah, Ravi Shankar, or the French heavy metal band Gojira, or classical icon Richard Wagner. Dray drives the beats of Princess. “Someday, I would love for us to play Red Rocks, but playing a few times a month builds up anticipation and seems to be a little more special.” Dray says about Princess’s future.

The music that comes is birthed very organically. With C3 and Dray developing the core riffs and rhythms, Jacob and Dray converge with meaningful words. The trio fine tune the songs until your orgasmic response is, “Holy Crap. Where did that come from?”

Princess isn’t a band you will find in a dance off. They are more likely to be the ones starting the mosh pit, kicking the shit out of their challengers. Princess are more likely to be driving the caravan straight in to the heart of the universe at 66,700 mph on a low rumbling Harley, a clown car, and a special sized school bus… while Jacob wears a tiara.
