Edsel Dope (born Brian Charles Ebejer, March 21, 1974, West Palm Beach, Florida) is the lead singer and main songwriter for nu metal/industrial metal band Dope. Dope was founded on December 10, 1997 by Edsel and his brother, Simon Dope (keyboards) in New York City.[1]

Edsel co-produced all of Dope's albums. On Felons and Revolutionaries, Dope's first album (released in 1999), Edsel played and programmed most of the musical instruments.

Edsel has an interest for electronic gadgetry, and has always been leader for Dope's programming and keyboard sounds in the recording studio. He is a self-taught musician and a guitarist as well as bass player. Before forming Dope, Edsel's ambition was to make his mark in music as a drummer. He played drums in Makeshift Romeo, a band that features Tripp Lee Tribbett and Derek DeSantis of Twisted Method and Dope guitarist Virus.
