Ed Prosek returns with “Now And Then”
Berlin based singer, songwriter, producer and musician Ed Prosek has just released his fourth new tune of 2020, “Now And Then”, a dreamy, wishy and thought-provoking number, which focuses on Ed’s vocal style set against a backdrop of the minimum of instrumentation. The song follows up his EP, “Flesh & Blood, Pt. 2”, three years after “Part One” was released. Originally from California, Ed’s family heritage is rooted in Czechoslovakia, so perhaps its fitting that she should now find himself in Berlin.
Ed says of the new release: “‘Now and Then’ is about man’s ever lasting struggle against time. Life is a long road and the decisions we make early on sometimes have insurmountable consequences for better or worse. When we look back on life, regardless of the current crossroads, there is often a deep nostalgia for opportunities lost to decisions made long ago. The weight of this nostalgiac lingstous, weighing us down like a ball and chain and only the forgiveness and acceptance of the past unburden us”.
Ed debut in 2012 with the appropriately titled EP, “California” and has been prolific ever since with no less than eighteen other releases, including four EP’s which have collectively been streamed over 60 million times! So this is no mere hobby for Ed. With no full albums released yet, Ed prefers to just let the ideas come, whenever, wherever. He adds: “I have never kept a traditional diary but I can look back on my life since I first started writing music and each one opens a detailed insight to how I was feeling at the time”.
