Oyster Premiere: Ebhoni Drops Ultra Chill Single And Answers Our Questions
Canadian dream girl Ebhoni is one helluva over achiever. After making a YouTube channel as a 10-year-old, and casually hitting 100K listens, she sat down and pumped out an original record by age 12. Fast track to now and a 16-year-old Ebs has sharpened the magic in her voice and lyrics, and worked on a clear production concept that puts a pop sensibility nicely next to left field rnb.

What are some of your high school phases?

In what ways have you changed since then?
I would say from the start of high school to now, I have become very confident with who I am and accept myself. When I was younger, I did try to fit in and follow what others were doing but it never felt right and it didn't make me happy. Now I do what makes Ebbi happy!
