Ed Prosek Holds on Tight

Californian (now Brighton based) 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 search for a ‘home’ is an ever present theme in Ed’s music, often reflecting on his father’s experience of fleeing his home in Czechoslovakia during the Soviet Union and traveling the world as a refugee in the early 80’s.

Ed has now released single ‘Hold on Tight’ and also announced a string of UK live dates (see below).

We had a listen:

This starts as a cocoon of shaker-rattles circling around a central rhythmic hub – from this hatches out the fibres of gregarious vocal sound.

The voice is rich velvet ruched, quilted and worn – with a golden sheen.

Ultra-soft beaver-skin vocals cross-link with wonderfully clever musicality – made with feeling.
