At 14 yrs, joined a local Band performing Lead, Back-up Vocals and played Percussion while touring most of the country. At 16yrs, family migrated to the United States. Ebanie moved to Oceanside California where he attending Oceanside High. After HS, he returned to New Jersey and began touring with 'The INNERSTATE' reggae band performing Lead, Back-up Vocals & Guitars. Before the members were about to go their separate ways, Ebanie was scouted for yet another famous Reggae Band 'KEYSTONE' from Philadelphia, who were at that time touring with Legendary Reggae Superstar 'MAX ROMEO'. During that tour he was discovered by a Record Company Executive at California based Indi Pop/R&B label SAK Records. After 'Max Romeo's' tour ended, SAK Records signed Ebanie to record a single for their label, gaving him full rights to Producer, Writer and sing Lead, along with his close friend and guitar player. As the story goes, after the legal madness, the final out come saw Ebanie Co-Producing the Single for his friend instead, and did not sing or write for that project. After he left SAK Records, Ebanie obtained Artist Management and a Financial Backer, and began work on his first and most ambitious Solo project to date 'DO ME RIGHT'.

While at All Star Sound Studios, Ebanie had the pleasure of meeting legendary Producer James M'Tume, during that period M'Tume was working on his group project and producing jazz artist Roy Ayres. Ebanie soaked up some of the skills and knowledge of M'Tume, who was always willing to teach young up and coming artist/producers. And he allowed Ebanie to sit in on his sessions to check out his work. During that period, Ebanie met yet another famous person/entertainment lawyer Mr. Karl Guthrie, Karl Guthrie, who's sister is the Late Gwen Guthrie, had secured record deals for artist such as 'Lisa Lisa & the Colt Jam', 'Full Force' and many others... he became a mentor and friend who saw that ebanie was very eager to learn the Entertainment business. And became very instrumental in teaching ebanie the ins and outs of the industry, he taught ebanie the importance of attending various Music Seminars and answered any questions he had concerning issues he had been encountering. At one such seminar NMS (NEW MUSIC Seminar) in New York City, Karl introduced Ebanie to many of the hard hitters of the time. With his Demo's in hand, a Canadian Indi Label found his material very commercial and asked to sign a couple of singles they had heard. After turning down that label, and realizing that he had marketable material, Ebanie embarked on putting together his own independent Record Label 'YESAK Records and began work on releasing his first single. At Karl Gurhrie's Office, he told Ebanie about a famous Platinum Recording Group "Young & Company", who had needed a Producer at the time, and was taking office in the same building as Karl. Ebanie was then asked by the members Kenny, Mike & Billy, to produce their album. At the time they were signed to Atlantic Records. Ebanie began Production on their album at then famous "MEDIA SOUND Studio" NYC. A week later at MEDIA Sound studio, he happened to meet the mix-engineer who was working in studio A, and was impressed with ebanie's work, asked Ebanie to assist in mixing a single that had just one day before had been recorded by the famous ROLLING STONES called 'Harlem Shuffle', which had featured BOBBY WOMACK. That Single was mixed and ready to be premier the very next evening that the ROLLING Stones had to appear at the Grammy's where they were to receive a Life Time Achievement Award, making this one of Ebanie's most crowning achievements. After fulfilling his obligation with Young & Company's album, he began recording "RESCUE YOU" A Single which was later signed to VIRGIN Record UK. RESCUE YOU was recorded at If Walls Could Talk Studios and Mixed at Mission Control Studios Boston MA, by Chris Erwin and Sydney Burton. MISSION Control Studios was owned by Michael Junzun younger brother of Morris Starr. Michael himself spend a few summers with ebanie teaching him new ideas concerning the industry. The Second Single "HEAVYLOAD" was recorded at CALLIOPE Studios and engineered by Calvin Gaines, with overdubs at DIGITAL Sound Studios New York with Chris Erwin. The Mix was done at If Walls Could Talk Studios by Glenn Taylor & Ebanie. 'HEAVYLOAD', upon it's first 3 weeks of release, received rave reviews in the States, and South America, and was very instrumental in launching his career as an artist and record producer. Ebanie toured extensively throughout the United States for 4 months, before realizing that his Single was Number One in South America. He was then invited to visit on a promotional tour by the entertainment media and radio personalities. After two visits to South America, he returning to the States. On one of his shows he was asked by the manager of CAPITAL Records artist 'CHYENA' to produce a song for her. He began work with 'CHYENA' at Digital Sound Studios NY.

Many of the singles were released on those Labels throughout the USA, West Indies, Jamaica, England, Guyana, St. Lucia, Suriname, and Barbados. After returning to America, Ebanie began production on a few artist for various labels, some famous and some new up and coming. And in 1995, he received a singles deal with MHG Records, a Nigerian - USA based R&B/Reggae label, who's A&R was interested in releasing the single 'KOOL LOVER' f/ Ebanie & Floydie Ranks, and was produced, arranged and composed by Ebanie.
