In a few short years Ebenezer has worked with the likes of Craig David, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign and Rejjie Snow. With the release of ‘Cliché’ he’s now stepping out alone, further carving the unique path he’s set for himself – one of emotionally tinged R&B with hints of trap, completely void of the usual pretence that’s flooded the genre. In a way, it could be described as conscious turn-up music, but without a holier than thou message it’s simply real. Ebenezer is telling his stories to the world.
The track sets Ebenezer apart from everyone else, as someone from London with a story to tell. “Cliché is a testament to who I am, my truth. I grew up different and I think different. I perceive the things that occur in my surroundings and effect my day to day life differently, all the way to my music. I've always been the one to say how I feel and not think twice about fitting in. I've always tried to be honest and transparent in everything I do especially in my music.”
Born in Homerton and now living in Tottenham, Ebenezer spent most of his childhood at a cousin’s house in Hackney – himself, his brother and sister and cousins all packed into one room like sardines. While his mother was busy holding down three jobs, Ebenezer would sit in his cousin’s house listening to music. “My brother was like the father, looked out for me, made sure I was straight, gave me hand-me-downs, put me on game, don’t do this, do this,” he says, referencing how they would spend evenings listening to MTV Base, eventually learning to produce.
