Oscar Jerome - Breathe Deep
Another of London's leading Jazz lights, featuring contributions from members of Ezra Collective, Sons of Kemet and Maisha, alongside Lianne La Havas and Steam Down‘s Brother Portrait.
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.”

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
