Five Minutes With: R&B Musician EB3N

Eben Kweku Parry, professionally known as “EB3N” was born in Antigua to Ghanaian parents. Eben was raised in Antigua until the age of 9, at which point he moved to Leduc, a small town on the outskirts of Edmonton, Alberta. Eben’s youth was spent playing high-level soccer, instilling in him the principles of hard work, dedication, and leadership from a young age.

While his athletic career remained a focal point, Eben always had a passion for music, stemming from his love for gospel music in church and his piano and guitar lessons. One pivotal moment that sparked his transition to music was a car ride with his uncle Kwame, where he was told his knack for rhythm and melody was special. From that moment on, Eben fully immersed himself in his passion for music and began his journey as an artist. Over the years, he has honed his musical abilities, releasing his first single, “Far Away,” in 2021, and countless singles since, including his most recent “Uninvited.”
