Self-made singer and guitarist Oscar Jerome combines soulful strains with contemporary electronica and organic instrumentation. Citing his influences as Gil Scott Heron, John Martyn and Ebo Taylor in particular, he blends timeless sounds of the past with a forward-thinking energy and songwriting.
‘2 Sides’ produced by Maxwell Owin and Oscar Jerome is the second track from Jerome’s highly anticipated self-titled EP, out this Wednesday. This track drops the tempo to show him in a more intimate light, with tinges of D’Angelo in the sensual, low-slung grooves. The stripped back arrangement allows his voice to take centre stage in the verses, before the choruses swell to more intense strains.
Following the recent release of his stunning video in collaboration with illustrator Gaurab Thakali, 2 Sides is the perfect juxtaposition to the politically driven ‘Give Back What You Stole From Me’. Featuring some of the hottest musicians and producers in London, Jerome’s EP is expected to be something really special and we’re very excited about it!
