EDEN will perform at several major U.S. music festivals this summer, including Bunbury, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, and Firefly, in addition to Fuji Rock in Japan and at the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK. The Dublin-based vocalist/producer/multi-instrumentalist kicks off his tour with an appearance at Skyline: Art, Music, Food today, May 20th, at the Los Angeles State Historic Park with headliner Miike Snow. Tickets can be purchased HERE.

Last year EDEN, AKA 21-year-old Jonathon Ng, released his EP i think you think too much of me – out now on Astralwerks – which found him channeling his passion for innovation into a guitar-heavy take on electronic pop and proving himself to be an artist of uncompromising originality. The lead single “sex” was hailed by Consequence of Sound as a “vulnerable synth-tinted pop track that’s about so much more than what’s happening between the sheets,” while Pigeons & Planes called “drugs” “another strong showing from this emerging talent.”

Ng learned to play the violin at age seven at the urging of his parents and through classical training, discovered his natural musicality. He then began learning new instruments on his own and discovered a passion for songwriting. From the bedroom of his childhood home, he began to cultivate a large online following, and establish in his own mind the vision for EDEN’s future. In August 2015 EDEN made his debut with End Credits and – despite making zero effort to promote it – soon found the EP gaining major attention and ultimately amassing more than 120 million streams as well as selling out his first US tour. That momentum continued to build as EDEN released a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” in November 2015, a soulfully cinematic track that hit #1 on HypeM’s popular chart and racked up a million cumulative streams in one week.
