Californian singer-songwriter Ed Prosek is an artist of striking talent. His intimate vocals and songs of honesty, introspection and worldly observation set him apart from other young songwriters, combining a musical beauty and individual sense of arrangement with powerful and emotive lyricism to create music that is truly undeniable in every sense of the word.
The son of an opera composer, Ed Prosek’s journey to becoming a folk-pop songwriter is one firmly routed in the classical world. A former student of the prestigious San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Ed left his native California for the south coast of England in 2011, emerging to critical acclaim in 2012 with his debut EP, ‘California’, a demonstration of Ed’s prowess as not only a conventional songwriter but as an arranger and band leader that belie his youth. Immediately gaining a strong online presence, Ed’s cover of Paul Simon’s ‘Homeward Bound’ was the soundtrack to Cathedral City’s major TV advertising campaign, bringing Ed and his music to the national audience in a direct fashion. A subsequent self-released EP and continuous live presence in Brighton and London as well as tours to Germany and the West Coast of America have seen Ed’s fanbase and online presence grow quickly, grabbing the attention of world famous producer, Rupert Hine, who subsequently signed him as a songwriter to BMG Chrysalis/Auditorius in early 2014.
Ed Prosek's intimate and uplifting new single Shadows builds on the success of his self released 2016 EP Truth, having been playlisted on major European radio stations, featured on Apple Music’s 'Best of the Week' and reaching well over a million streams on Spotify.
Shadows is a subtle nod to the American Songwriters of old, chronicling his journey as an American in Europe, and describing a foreigner’s understanding of the striking similarities of all people the world over. Unlike some of Prosek’s earlier work, Shadows focuses more on the love and acceptance in something new, rather than a longing for home. It is a love song, not to a person, but to a city, a time, and a moment in life.
