Oscar Jerome

South London has a vibrant jazz scene, and Oscar Jerome is one of its central pawns. He is a member of the sublime jazz band KOKOROKO and in that capacity the author of ‘Abusey Junction’, one of the most beautiful songs of 2018. Jerome is also frequently consulted by other interesting British jazz acts like Moses Boyd, Ezra Collective and Sons of Kemet, and he toured through Great Britain with the American grandmaster Kamasi Washington. Now the time has finally come for Oscar Jerome as a solo artist. He is an incredibly talented singer, guitarist and composer who draws from a wide range of inspiration: the funk of George Benson and the punk of The Clash, as well as the afro blues of Ali Farka Touré and the hip-hop of Jay Dilla. He takes them all on a journey past unknown stars and planets.
