Ed Prosek – Shadows [TMN Premiere]

Ed Prosek
Shadows

Once again we’ve been fortunate enough to have been graced with new music from American singer/songwriter Ed Prosek. This brilliant new release ‘Shadows’ is beautifully crafted by soft guitar picking, a relaxed drum beat and smooth vocals. Prosek delivers such an essence of comfort, despite reminding us of his story having left California and his home for something, and somewhere new.
Personable and intimate lyrical imagery, such as, ‘crooked smile’ draw us further in as listeners; bridging the gap between us and him, and the music. A liberating release of vocals crafts the powerful chorus, as if he’s letting go of the emotive tension carefully built throughout the heartfelt verses.
Elements of folk break through the piece, resembling some of his older music and initial stylistic features. However, rather than singing of a longing for home, ‘Shadows’ focuses on elements of acceptance, and conveys love for a city, time and a moment in life.
The bridge section is musically diminished to almost nothing, driven by a delicate guitar and piano section, before rising dramatically into an awesome final chorus: a stylistic element typical of Prosek’s songwriting.

Developing on the success of his EP ‘Truth’, released earlier this year, Ed has been spread across European radios and featured on Apple Music’s ‘Best of the week’, and there’s no wonder his music is increasingly gaining traction both online and live. He will be touring Germany throughout November, and we can expect an anticipated EP release due next Spring!
