Eden Pearlstein, known as ePRHYME (pronounced E-prime), is a Brooklyn-based Emcee, Author and Educator with deep roots in the west coast underground. As a prolific recording artist, dynamic performer and visionary creative director, ePRHYME has made a name for himself by combining cutting edge cultural expression with iconoclastic and consciousness expanding contemporary Jewish self-expression. His music blends together diverse sounds and ideas such as Kabbalah, psychology, politics, and party rocking with elements of jazz, funk, klezmer, and middle eastern music to create a powerful and poetic plea for peace, justice, joy, and unity. A true Master of Ceremony, ePHRYME approaches both Judaism and Hip Hop with a profound re­spect for tradition and crafts­man­ship, balanced by creative freedom and poetic license.

ePRHYME has built a re­pu­ta­tion as a dynamic performer and awe-inspiring lyricist, and has self-produced five full-length albums since 2000. ePRHYME’s solo debut ‘Waywordwonderwill’ was released in 2009 by Brooklyn based Jewish and World music label Shemspeed. Dopestylevsky, ePRHYME’s sophomore solo album, was released on the legendary indie label K Records in April 2011. Lost Tapes and Found Sounds, ePRHYME’s third solo album, was released by K Records in 2013 for digital download as well as on limited edition cassette tape

With years of experience as a musician and Hip Hop artist, Eden set his sights on building a business around his creative leanings. He completed Enterprise for Equity’s Business Training Program in the Spring of 2008 while working on his first album as a solo performer. It was a critical step for moving forward in his career.

“My experience with Enterprise for Equity was truly life changing. Through lectures, hands on workshops, software sharing, and peer support I was able to develop skills and tools that will help me turn my dream into a reality. Specifically, being given a functional understanding of organizational models for my money, time, and inventory were indispensable for my sanity and success as an independent business owner and artist.” – Eden Pearlstein (a.k.a ePRHYME), graduate of E4E.
