ED PROSEK
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.

Following the success of his singles, ‘Holy Water’ and ‘Hold On Tight’ as well as his EPs ‘The Riverbed’ and `Truth´, Ed has been performing and touring in the UK, US and throughout Europe, including major support tours and festivals. Relocating to Berlin in 2015 to write and record new material, he was also selected to be included on 'The Art Of Peace II: Songs for Tibet’, alongside artists including Sting, Kate Bush and Lorde. Until now Ed has collected nearly 4 million streams on Spotify and more than 600,000 plays on Soundcloud. His newest single „Shadows“ was released at the end of 2016 and is once again showing his immense potential. Recorded in Berlin, the artist has flipped the perspective from his previous work, with his new output yielding a much darker, heavier sound. Prosek brings together his singer-songwriter roots and a more complex exploration of raw sound, instrumentation and arrangement, moving away from his folkier roots. His unique nuances of sound and harmonies are perfectly demonstrated on his recently released EP 'Flesh & Blood Part 1'.
