Rolling Stone has named Prince "one of the world's greatest guitarists," and
3RDEYEGIRL is already turning critics' heads. Says Sticky Magazine of
guitarist Donna Grantis: "the full impact of Grantis is her live
performance: the interaction with other musicians onstage, the
improvisational wizardry and the sheer passion that can be felt."
TheCurrent.Org raves about Ida Nielsen and drummer
Hannah Ford: "Nielsen and Ford prove to be a powerhouse rhythm section."
GuitarCenter.com echoes of Ford: "From the moment
the show opens until it closes, you will feel the excitement and power of
Hannah's assault on her drum kit."
New music from PRINCE is available exclusively at
including "Screwdriver," "Breakfast
Can Wait," "RNR Remix 7," and more.
