Oscar Jerome announces headline at Ghost Notes, London on April 187 February 2018
South London’s Oscar Jerome has announced details of a forthcoming headline show at Peckham’s Ghost Notes on April 18, 2018. News of the show arrives following Oscar’s recent Where Are Your Branches? EP which received praise from the likes of Pigeons & Planes, Wonderland, Dummy, Clash and The Line Of Best Fit.
This new release follows the i-D-tipped jazz musician’s Worldwide Awards-nominated ‘Track Of The Year’, ‘Subdued’, and recent tips in Jamz Supernova’s picks for 2018, Gilles Peterson’s ‘6 to Watch’ and Clash’s 18 For ’18 feature where he is in the good company of Superorganism, IAMDDB and Sorry – read Oscar in further conversation with Clash here.
Produced in part by Jerome, Wu-Lu and Maxwell Owin, the Where Are Your Branches? EP draws from Oscar’s own spiritual, personal and ethical beliefs, as well as further illustrating his deep understanding of music. Jazz stylistics and off-kilter song structures find their place littered throughout the EP which takes in new collaborators such as South London poet, James Massiah (Massive Attack collab. & tipped in the Dazed 100), and revisits previous hands, including Moses Boyd of Binker & Moses and Poppy Ajudha.
