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 as a 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.

Following the success of his subsequent singles, ‘Holy Water’ and ’Shadows’ 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.

Tear It All Down is the new single from Ed Prosek, which will be released on the 21st of April, followed by his EP: Flesh & Blood Part 1 , due for release on May 12th. Recorded in Berlin, the Californian artist has taken on a new perspective on his previous work and yields a much darker, heavier sound and theme. Prosek brings together his singer songwriter roots and a more complex exploration of raw sound, instrumentation and arrangement.

Prosek’s evolution from acoustic singer songwriter to this new direction has been a natural progression through both his personal growth as an artist, and a reflection of a less certain world. Ed Prosek will be on a headline tour throughout Germany and the Netherlands in May, with festival dates and international showcases throughout the summer.
