California-born and Berlin-based artist Ed Prosek has embarked on an internal journey with The Foreigner EP, which sees the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist explore “identity and belonging”. The release blends chamber orchestration, Americana storytelling, and Pop accents. The most recent single from the EP is “Ever After (Wedding song)” and the EP is out now.
On The Foreigner, Prosek explores “his constant lack of belonging, no matter where he goes”.
As an American in Europe I’ll never be fully European, but at the same time, when I go home, I feel like a tourist there as well. A strange reality that leaves me confused about my identity and my feelings of ‘home’. This EP was written in one of the most important/exciting times of my life. It documents the highs and the lows of love and anxiety and it does so from the perspective of my inner monologue.
Growing up with a Czech father and an Italian mother, E Prosek’s family roots always reached towards the old world. He attended the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, lived in the UK for a time, then settled in Berlin.
Prosek released 2016’s Truth EP, Flesh & Blood, Pt. 1 EP in 2017, Light As A Feather EP in 2019, and singles such as “One Man’s Blessing,” “4AM,” “The Other Side,” and “The Garden.”
