What elso to say about his purple highness? Prince is a multi instrumentalist, a musical phenomenon and sometimes a genre for his own. Only a few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. During the '80s, he emerged as one of the most singular talents of the R&B era, capable of seamlessly tying together pop, funk, folk, and rock. Not only did he release a series of groundbreaking albums, he toured frequently, produced albums and wrote songs for many other artists, and recorded hundreds of songs that still lie unreleased in his vaults. With each album he has released, Prince has shown remarkable stylistic growth and musical diversity, constantly experimenting with different sounds, textures, and genres. Occasionally, his music can be maddeningly inconsistent because of this eclecticism, but his experiments frequently succeed; no other contemporary artist can blend so many diverse styles into a cohesive whole. Please visit the following external links for more details about his work:

Prince also appeared in various motion pictures, concert videos and tv-shows, worked as director and producer and contributed songs to various movies, video and tv-shows. Please visit the following external link for more details about his work:

Morris' solo recordings are listed at his [discography].

In 1990 Morris produced - together with [Freeze] and Benny Medina - a female band called The Day Zs': This all-female funk group, fronted by former Mary Jane Girl Cheri' Wells could best be described as Morris' attempt at creating his own Vanity 6. He wrote and produced every song on the album, and the Minneapolis sound is evident, though more in tune with his solo work. Essentially a female version of THE TIME, The Day Zs' self-titled one and only album - released 1990 on Reprise / Warner Bros. Records - is a lightweight but fun and funky ride, with Morris appearing by himself in typical form on the track "Green Acres".

He has also written tracks for other artists like Ying Yang Twins and appeared on some albums by other artists like [Prince] and Angel Grant for example.
