South Londoner Oscar Jerome has long been known for his psychedelic, funky alt-jazz style, with tracks like “Do You Really” and “Give Back What You Stole From Me” making him one of the most widely respected up-and-comers in the UK. Now, the young artist is at the tail end of a hectic touring season this year, which saw him play alongside Kamasi Washington, as well as sell out venues across Europe, including the historic “EartH” theatre in London.
One of those sold-out venues was Amsterdam’s Bitterzoet. There, Oscar Jerome’s incredible live performance was captured in hi-quality, allowing Jerome to give listeners a taste of his live-show through his latest album “Live In Amsterdam.” In the first single from the album, the young singer/songwriter can be heard performing his songs “Misty Head” and “Sunny Street.”
Running nearly 8 minutes in length, the track is a unique musical journey that can only be delivered through the beautiful real-ness of a live performance. It’s a rollercoaster of soul-piercing sax-focused jazz riffs, each instrument working together to create a singular sound. At the end of the track, Oscar Jerome can be heard interacting with the excited dutch crowd, introducing his next track.
The soul of Oscar Jerome’s music is unmatched. His unique ability to deeply connect with listeners is what’s gotten him noticed by massive curators like BBC Radio1 and 6 Music. With a steady touring schedule through November, Jerome’s “Live In Amsterdam” album should serve as a preview of his engaging and jazzy performance schedule.
