New EP: Ed Prosek – The Riverbed (2014/11/17) [Full EP Stream]

:: Totally missed the release of Ed’s new EP because I was on vacation in Norway. Just stumbled over it yesterday, better late then never I guess. 


I’ve been a big a fan of Brighton-based California boy Ed Prosek ever since I first heard his debut EP California two years ago. Some weeks ago, the indie-folk singer/songwriter released his third EP The Riverbed, to follow-up to last year’s fantastic five-track EP Willow Tree.

The Riverbed was self-released on November 17, 2014. The EP is available as digital download only, you can get your copy from iTunes. The set of six tracks includes previous single Hold On Tight and its fantastic bside Let Me Know – my favourite track off The Riverbed – as well as four new songs.

The EP is still streaming in its entirety over at The Line Of Best Fit where Ed also gave a track-by-track guide to the EP songs which worth a read. Above, you can listen to the EP track Home.
