Ebe Oke was born in South Georgia in the deep South of America. From an early age his artistic practice has been multi-disciplinary with work in many media including photography, design, performance, poetry, video, and storytelling, though his oeuvre is perhaps focused primarily on making music. Mixing a sense of mythological backstory with the tradition of art song Ebe Oke is a kind of Renaissance artist for the new if quickly aging millennium. Among his broad range of aesthetic ingredients are those culled from nature, for example exquisite references to birdsong, and an interest in a particular kind of cutting edge literary practice recalling Brion Gysin and Laurie Anderson though told in an ultra-contemporary way. What distinguishes Ebe Oke from others working within similar areas of production is the personal and intimate nature of his work which is, when perfectly distilled, chilling in its abject direct simplicity.
