Featuring: JARELL EBUKA
Jarell Ebuka is an Animator who also happens to be an independent singer/songwriter and record producer, bringing art to life through his music. With his excellent guitar playing technique, his soulful voice and a unique songwriting style, he captures not only the ears of his listeners but also their hearts.
Born as the youngest of three in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, Jarell Ebuka has loved music right from a tender age. Faced with difficulties academically, he made up for it by focusing on his creative skills where he excelled. He then taught himself to play the guitar at the age of 18, developed his skills as a singer/songwriter, and pursued his dream BSc course, Computer Animation, and Special Effects.
After obtaining his BSc in Bradford, England, he moved to London to further his passion for music. Here, he spent a year obtaining a Master's degree in Audio Production and Music.
While based in London, Jarell played over 150 gigs across England for a period of two years, broadening his performance skills and building his fan base. This collection of unique skills have made him a force in the industry. He has since released an E.P (Nights With Farida) and several singles through the years and now awaits the release of his 2020 E.P to kick off the decade.
