Singer, guitarist and composer Oscar Jerome is party of the London jazz scene. With his live band he showcases a cool jazz sound drenched in soul and hip hop, which includes the rap-like vocals of Jerome.
As one of the rising stars of the London jazz scene he finds inspiration in heroes like Gil Scott-heron, George Benson and J. Dilla for his productions. Oscar Jerome studied jazz guitar for a while but quickly swapped those studies for a life as a live musician. He is also session-musician and is part of London jazz & afrobeat collective Kokoroko.
The single ‘Subdued’ of his EP ‘Where Are Your Branches’ was nominated for the category ‘Track of the Year’ during Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards.
Note: this concert takes place in Brebl, Waalbandijk 14E in Nijmegen.
