Ed Prosek is a 22 year old Californian native now residing 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 40000 YouTube views and Ed’s twitter followers rise to over 35000. 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 for Cathedral City last year 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.
Following tour dates in the UK, Ed will tour the West Coast of America, touching base in his home town San Francisco to play with the SFCCO, The San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra on November 9th. The SFCCO are a chamber orchestra set up for the specific purpose of playing new music composed by the orchestra’s performers and have invited Ed as a special guest to join the orchestra for a concert of Ed’s material. Ed will rearrange his music specially for this unique event.
Ed will be back to the UK. in this new home Brighton, in the new year and has already started plans for a full UK tour and full album set for release in 2014.
