Life and career

Early life

Jonathon Ng was born on December 23, 1995 to an Irish mother and a Chinese father in Dublin, Ireland. From the age of seven, he was trained in classical violin. He later taught himself the piano, guitar and drums. He attended and graduated from Blackrock College, Dublin.

2013–2015: The Eden Project

Ng began independently releasing tracks as The Eden Project in 2013, achieving popularity through promotion networks. In 2014, he released the album Kairos, in which the tracks "Statues" and "Chasing Ghosts" saw him experimenting with a more subdued alternative style of music. In October 2014, he released the Entrance EP, whose indie track "Circles" contrasted his familiar electronic style. His most popular tracks were deviations from his usual sound. On 10 December 2014, he was featured on the track "Scribble" by New York-based producer Puppet, which was released through Monstercat.

In 2015, Ng further embraced his indie style with the Bipolar Paradise EP, whose track "Fumes" has amassed over 15 million views on YouTube as of April 2018. He later announced that he was discontinuing The Eden Project, and released Final Call, his last EP under the alias. It contained two covers, one of "Blank Space" by Taylor Swift and the other of "Crazy In Love" by Beyoncé. "Times Like These" is officially the last song released under his former alias.

2015–2016: Change to Eden, End Credits, ITYTTMOM and Futurebound tour

Ng changed his alias to Eden following the release of Final Call, and began recording new work in spring 2015. The End Credits EP was released for free download worldwide on 8 August through UK-based label Seeking Blue Records, as well as Ng's own imprint MCMXCV. The EP consists of indie pop and alternative electronica tracks with a strong emphasis on vocals. Two singles, "Nocturne" and "Gravity", were released in June and July, respectively. As a whole, the EP has amassed over 14 million plays on the streaming platform SoundCloud.

On 22 March, Ng embarked on his End Credits Tour, with concerts in Dublin, London, Toronto, New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The tickets were sold out within the week, and an additional venue was set up in New York City due to demand. The tour concluded on 8 April.

Shortly after his End Credits tour, Ng announced that his new EP, I Think You Think Too Much of Me, would be released on 19 August 2016. On 10 June 2016, the first single, "sex", was released, featuring a greater focus on vocals and instrumentation. A month later, Billboard premiered the next single, "drugs", a day before its official release on 15 July 2016. The EP features "Fumes", formerly released under The Eden Project, featuring Gnash, in addition to re-releases of two other The Eden Project songs, remastered versions of "XO" and "Circles." After release, the EP charted on the Irish Albums Chart, becoming Ng's first charting music.

On 7 September 2016, Ng released a second music video for "drugs", a 360 degree video experience in virtual reality. The video amassed 1.5 million Facebook views in one week.

Ng promoted i think you think too much of me through the Futurebound Tour, which began on 7 September 2016 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The tour included 33 performances in North America and Europe, and concluded on 26 November with a final show in Paris, France.

2017–present: Festival shows, Vertigo and Vertigo World Tour

Eden embarked on a festival tour in the summer of 2017. He also selected a few fans to film their experiences at each show and post them to his Snapchat account. On 2 September, Ng performed his final show of the festival season at Electric Picnic. During his set, he premiered the official version of "start//end," a song that had previously been leaked on his SoundCloud account in January.

On 28 September, "start//end" was released on all major music platforms as the first single from the upcoming album Vertigo. The single was accompanied by a music video, which has surpassed 1 million views after trending on YouTube. The video was shot in various places in Europe, North America and Japan.

On 8 November 2017, Eden hinted toward the release of a new single on social media. On 8 and 9 November, EDEN's website displayed coordinates where people scavenged to find posters hidden in various locations across the world. Gold was officially released 10 November 2017 alongside the announcement of the Vertigo World Tour, which will span from March to May 2018.
