Ed Prosek is a 23 year old Californian native living in Brighton, UK. Ed’s debut EP ‘California’ (2012) gained him a strong online following seeing the video for the EP’s title track gain over 50,000 YouTube views and Ed’s twitter followers rise to over 40.000. Following this initial interest, Ed’s cover of Paul Simon’s classic hit, ‘Homeward Bound’ was chosen as the soundtrack to a major tv advert in the UK taking Ed and his music to the national audience in a direct fashion.
‘Willow Tree’ is a development on the sound Ed and his band created on ‘California’ honing his self titled ‘orchestral folk’ into a 5 track ep of astounding diversity and beauty. Featuring Ed’s eight piece ensemble including a string quartet, ‘Willow Tree’ showcases Ed’s unique ability as a songwriter, composer and arranger with a pop sensibility reminiscent of Paul Simon himself.
After playing several shows in England and Germany this year, as well as supporting Lindsey Sterling on her German dates this summer, Ed is currently working on new material and will be playing a few more shows in Europe this year.
