Description

South London’s Oscar Jerome presents his highly-anticipated debut album 'Breathe Deep' released via Caroline International.  A staple of the capital’s burgeoning jazz scene – previously collaborating with everyone from Shabaka Hutchings to Moses Boyd and Yussef Dayes, plus playing for Kokoroko, 'Breathe Deep' sees Oscar bring in an army of collaborators that he says have been an integral part of his journey so far. Those that play on the record include Joe Armon-Jones, Sons of Kemet and Maisha, alongside an official feature from the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas.

The record arrives off the back of a fast-growing catalogue that’s seen the Norwich-born guitarist and vocalist pick up frequent support and playlisting from the likes of 6 Music, Radio 1 and 1Xtra. Talking about his debut album, Oscar says:

“'Breathe Deep' is a pretty broad presentation of who I am musically and my journey to get to this point. On a personal level, it’s a reflection of the effort put in during that path of self-bettering, both emotionally and in life more broadly. It’s about preparing oneself for failure and growing from that.

Taking a moment to step back and see where things are going and where one has been. It also addresses the resilience of people, which is reflected in the more political moments on the album. The world is a messed up place but people still find ways of preparing themselves for it.”

"Jerome’s guitar sounds like sunbeams, and he is a gifted songwriter with a folkie sensibility – soulful but understated, his voice never forced or overblown, and all the richer for it."
★★★★☆
 
               
"a free-flowing and effortless mesh of jazz, neo-soul, funk, hip-hop and indie channeled through Jerome’s duality of youthful ebullience and seasoned knowledge"
