Cancelled: Ebony Bones

Visionary recording artist, producer and composer Ebony Bones today announces her staggering new album ‘Nephilim’, a truly unique collection of eleven dark, punk infused, politically charged, cinematic tracks, featuring the Beijing Philharmonic Orchestra, that firmly establishes Bones as one of the most unique, redefining and exciting voices operating in the Arts today. The first taste of the album comes in the form of Ebony Bones’ directorial debut, the stunning video for the album’s title track, as premiered by V Magazine. 

Ebony Bones’ avant-garde approach and breath-taking aesthetic has, understandably, been in hot demand across the creative industries. Bones has scored runway shows and campaigns for iconic fashions houses Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander Wang, as well as modelling for Valentino and collaborating with Yoko Ono, most notably producing the reworked track ‘No Bed For Beatle John’, featured on Ono’s 2016 album ‘Yes, I’m A Witch Too’. It was this collaboration that lead Bones to reach out to the Beijing Philharmonic Orchestra and enabled her to make an album that pushes her musical ingenuity even further.  

Recorded between Beijing, New York and London, the album explores themes ranging from censorship, to the emergence of nationalism, particularly in her native U.K (No Black In The Union Jack) and is testament to an entirely self-sufficient female artist who has carved out an impressive path, creating her own platform from which she is free to create.  

Taking her lead from self-produced female artists such as Kate Bush, Linda Perry, Missy Elliott and Lauryn Hill, the production element of the creative process is just as important to Bones as the writing and recording. As part of the less than 5% of solo producers that are female, Bones is quick to notice the impact that has on whose voices are actually being heard when we listen to music and how that, in turn, is censorship

“Gender and ethnic diversity are markers for many of the key things that make music and art vital and resilient,” says Bones. “However, with the frighteningly low proportion of female music producers, there is currently only one dominant voice that determines what we all hear, and what music gets made.” 

Thankfully, Ebony Bones is here to change that.
