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.
Every musician knows the ol' mantra for releasing new tunes: If you love a song, set it free, if it resonates with the crowd, it's a hit.
I first met singer-songwriter Prateek Poddar through the now "indefinitely hiatused" EBASS community. Poddar at that time was bright eyed and excited about the scene circling around him. Excited to catch new performers, excited to have opportunities like the Lizard open mic. Just a genuinely good dude to be around with an incredibly infectious attitude...
Boston-area singer-songwriter Prateek Poddar has a talent for the blues. Listening to the recent music video for his song "Diamonds," it's clear that the young musician has studied at the feet of the blues masters, because the song sounds like it was ripped from the Mississippi Delta in the early part of the 20th century.
If you haven't heard, local singer/songwriter Prateek Poddar released a sentimental new single that's sure tug at the heartstrings. The simple guitar plucks throughout "Emma" match the mood of Poddar's wistful yet blue lyrics. His energy is subtle but polished, which makes for an elegant, acoustic tune.
