Ed Prosek Reveals Video To New Single ‘Hold On Tight’

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.

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. In Brighton, however, Ed seems to have finally set down roots, and with his band (ranging from an eight piece ensemble, including string quartet, down to solo), and his closely knit team, he is poised to have a big impact on the UK’s music scene in the coming months and years.

Ed’s new single ‘Hold On Tight’ reflects upon his journey both as a musician and young man, the struggle to survive and the people who come together to make such things possible. The song is an energy driven folk pop ballad, with an infectiously catchy hook and chorus, showcasing the best of Ed’s song-writing and voice. The single precedes the forthcoming ‘Riverbed’ EP due in mid November with tour dates across the UK to support the release.
