publish date: 2017-10-19
Dublin-bred singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist EDEN (born Jonathon Ng) first dazzled fans across the globe from his childhood bedroom back in 2015, where he self-released and began to cultivate a massive following on the strength of his debut EP End Credits, which has amassed more than 120 million streams to date.
The attention led to a sold out first U.S. headline tour, and stints on the festival circuit at Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and Firefly as well as the Reading and Leeds festivals in the U.K. and Fuji Rock in Japan. Ng followed up the initial blast with the release of his 2016 EP i think you think too much of me, with lead single "sex" earning a major co-sign from another wunderkind pop upstart from across the globe -- Lorde.
"hi you - i love 'sex' a lot. It does something very simple and intense to my brain," the Kiwi star wrote in June 2016, before adding, "I wasn't sure how to contact you, so I went for the old facebook wall lol." The endearing reach out-was answered by Ng -- two days later -- with: "Almost didn't come across this - thank you for making me smile today."
