Rising through London’s rich and kaleidoscopic musical community, Norfolk-born Oscar Jerome has continued to stand out amongst the city's colourful sonic tapestry - finding a welcome home amongst like-minded peers in Ezra Collective, Sons of Kemet, Moses Boyd, Poppy Ajudha, Catching Flies, Hidden Spheres and Jay Prince, all of which Oscar has collaborated with in some capacity through his years in the capital, be it on stage or in the studio. Whether it's supporting Kamasi Washington around the UK, having the likes of Lianne La Havas and Joe Armon-Jones join him on stage or performing alongside IAMDDB at an Annie Mac Presents night, Oscar Jerome straddles a variety of musical lanes that reflect his broad musicality, one that pools together his virtuosic guitar playing – a product of his stint studying at the esteemed Trinity Laban Conservatoire (Fela Kuti, Moses Boyd, Tom Misch) – and influences from the world of jazz, funk, soul and hip-hop. Through a constant stream of singles that have seen him regularly tipped by the likes of 6 Music, Radio 1 and 1Xtra, tour the USA and sell out shows everywhere from Rotterdam to Rome, as well as through his work in Kokoroko – penning the afrobeat ensemble's 30-million-YouTube-streams-and-counting 'Abusey Junction' – Oscar continues to pollenate wider musical audiences and showcase an adept musical mind who isn't afraid to mix it up.
