Esther Eden grew up in the UAE, listening to her mother singing along to jazz music and Ella Fitzgerald. With a voice way beyond her years, at the age of 18 now, her vocal maturity has reached a tremendous peak.

Her music journey started off with a life changing experience. In 2014, Jessie J heard Esther performing and filmed the entire performance on her phone.

She also invited Esther to sing her original song at Jessie J’s concert that very evening for an audience of over 10,000 people. A truly inspiring story that hit the headlines and so Esther’s fan base started to develop since then.

At the end of 2015, Universal Music MENA signed a record deal with her to produce and release her new debut album.
