Prince was born on the 7th of June, 1958 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Mattie Shaw and John L. Nelson. He was named after his father, Prince Rogers, who was a part of a jazz band called the Prince Rogers Trio. Prince produced a demo tape in 1976 with the producer, Chris Moon in the latter's studio in Minneapolis. Moon was unable to get a recording contract, and so brought their tape to Owen Husney, who was a Minneapolis Businessman. He signed Prince to a management contract at the age of seventeen, and helped him create a demo recording at the Sound 80 Studios using David Z, who was an engineer/producer. This resulted in interest from numerous record companies such as Warner Bros. Records, Columbia Records and A&M Records. Prince finally signed a contract with Warner Bros. Prince and Husney then moved to Sausalito, California and released Prince's debut album For You at Record Plant Studios. The album was later mixed in 1978 in Los Angeles.
