Ed Balloon is one of the more unique musical acts currently on the rise to prominence. Originally, Ed had intentions of becoming a lawyer prior to pursuing music but with musical influences like Jill Scott and Maxwell and being cognizant of his bass-driven voice and Nigerian-roots he's created a lane for himself that has allowed him to curate a cult-like following over the course of his music career. The Roxbury, Massachusetts-born artist fuses elements of R&B, electronic, hip-hop and more to create an almost world music-esque sound that supersedes musical genre classifications.
And now, with three full-length projects under his belt and a cult-like following, Ed Balloon is taking his talents to Great Scott in Allston, MA to headline his own residency this upcoming January in partnership with Lysten Boston. The four-date residency will also include musical guests Cliff Notez, Maeko, and Billy Jean Thomas as well.
