Not just any guy with a guitar... Prateek’s honest, elegant songcraft and luminous voice capture the ear and heart immediately.

... stripped down, honest heartbreak...

Bio

Prateek has been described as “Not just any guy with a guitar…” by The Boston Globe and perhaps that’s the best introduction to his music besides actually listening to it. The Boston-based artist recorded his debut EP, “Walking in My Sleep,” with only his guitar and two microphones in an attempt to emulate Bob Dylan’s early work. Since then, Prateek’s music has evolved to incorporate gritty electric guitars, silvery backing vocals, and lush strings, all draped around his own soulful, powerful voice. Prateek has been a Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist and has been nominated for Singer-Songwriter of the Year at both the New England Music Awards and the Boston Music Awards. His most recent EP, "All You Do Is Drown," is available wherever digital music is sold or streamed.

Prateek shines a light on small-town drinking culture in 'The Gang's All Gone'

Sponsored by Studio 52. A community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community. "No one likes you when you're stoned." "No one wants to be like you." "A bottle's not a place to build a home."

 

Song To Get You Through The Week: Prateek delivers soulful 'Gang's All Gone'

Boston singer-songwriter Prateek Poddar, who performs as just Prateek, brings a lot of soul and wistfulness to his country-flavored "The Gang's All Gone." The song's a portrait of someone who's been left behind as the friends of his youth have all moved on to other places, other phases of their lives.
