We sat down with Pringle for a rapid-fire round of our Quick & Dirty Interview series to discover some random facts. Read below to learn what Pringle thinks about why his greatest accomplishment is yet to come, what he would choose as the theme song to his life, some of his musical influences, and much more!

When do you feel like the best version of yourself?

Jesse Pringle: “I’d be untruthful if I said my best version was from happiness and content. The fact is that life’s struggles and hardships create the greatest art. I’m not saying that being unhappy is the comfort zone because it’s not, however, there’s an acceleration of passion, emotion and surviving that fuels creating new outcomes from overcoming obstacles.”

What’s the theme song to your life and why?

“My newest song, ‘Other Side,’ is literally my theme song. The lyrics, ‘If I ain’t live’n then I’m die’n’ ring in my ears every second of every day. I’ve personally experienced and witnessed many people, including family and friends, that have died unhappy and unsatisfied with life and relationships. I’ve only got one life, so I’m going to live it. Just as we are all designed.”

If your life were a book or movie, what would the title be?

Unclassified!!! Some of the memories and adventures that I’ve experienced should be shared and not held restricted and classified. From crazy in danger to living vulnerable and open for change. Inspiration to inspire. Adversities and strategy revealed.”

What quote would you put on your Tombstone?

“I’ll see you on the other side.”

What’s your guilty pleasure?

“Old school greasy double cheeseburgers and crispy tater-tots!”

Top 3 songs of all time?

“‘Mama Tried’ by Merle Haggard, ‘Computer Love’ by Zapp and Roger, and ‘Clair de’ lune’ by Claud Debussy.”

If you could hang out with a famous person (dead or alive) for one day, who would it be?

“If I could hang out with one person for one day, it would be Willie Nelson. This guy has so much to share, and I’d spend the day listening and taking notes.”

Favourite childhood musical memory?

“My memory would be of my grandfather singing country love songs while we worked and hung out together. One of the strongest, toughest men I ever knew with the gentle voice of a crooner.”

What do you think is your greatest accomplishment?

“Truthfully, I haven’t reached my greatest accomplishment, so to even think I have achieved a great accomplishment would be foolish to consider. I’ll always be my worst critic, so accomplishment at times seems like something far from reach.”

What always makes you nostalgic?

“Smells. It may sound odd, but certain smells bring back memories and thoughts of nostalgia. Good and bad.”
