Prince Poppycock is a roguish operatic dandy with a persona and repertoire that draws on the varied influences of his creator, John Quale. Poppycock's look and sound combines elements of glam rock, light opera, synth pop, and Western art music in a way that is fresh, sometimes startling, and always entertaining, doing each of those traditions justice yet transcending the past – rather than simply updating it – to become something truly original.
Prince Poppycock has opened for bands like the Dresden Dolls and The Sounds; sung at extravagant special events like New York's Dances of Vice; and opened for performance art legend Ann Magnuson at downtown LA's prestigious Redcat Theater. He was a final four contestant on NBC's “America's Got Talent,” during which judge Sharon Osbourne dubbed him “the male Lady Gaga.”
