At only 20 years of age, EDEN (real name Jonathon Ng) is making music with the emotional vulnerability of someone twice his age. He graduated High School a few years ago, but sings as though he thoroughly understands the politics of love and heartbreak.
Formerly known as The Eden Project, Ng changed his moniker in 2015 after a transition in musical styles. While this can be tricky for any emerging artist, the new alias seems to be working for him. He’s now signed with Scooter Braun, the man known for making Bieber, and has created a sound that mixes pop sensibilities with deeply poetic lyrics and dark melodic beats.
His highly anticipated EP, i think you think too much of me, is out early next month and already houses two hit singles, “sex” and “drugs”. If you wanna be transported into a world of pure sonic bliss, press play. I dare you. This kid, I mean young adult, really is future bound.
EDEN makes his Vancouver debut on September 7 at the Rio Theatre. Get your tickets here.
