EBENEZER RELEASES â€˜CLICHÃ‰â€™
Rising star Ebenezer releases his first single â€˜ClichÃ©â€™. The track was premiered across radio last week week via MistaJam and online by Noisey. Currently available across all Digital Service Providers.
In a few short years Ebenezer has worked with the likes of Craig David, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, ADP and Rejjie Snow. With the release of â€˜ClichÃ©â€™ heâ€™s now stepping out alone, further carving the unique path heâ€™s set for himself â€“ one of emotionally tinged R&B with hints of trap, completely void of the usual pretence thatâ€™s flooded the genre. In a way, it could be described as conscious turn-up music, but without a holier than thou message itâ€™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. â€œClichÃ© 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.â€
Born in Homerton and now living in Tottenham, Ebenezer spent most of his childhood at a cousinâ€™s house in Hackney â€“ 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 cousinâ€™s house listening to music. â€œMy brother was like the father, looked out for me, made sure I was straight, gave me hand-me-downs, put me on game, donâ€™t do this, do this,â€ he says, referencing how they would spend evenings listening to MTV Base, eventually learning to produce.
