Say hello to Jerome.LDN, the 23 year old West London spiritualist on a mission to mix the old with the new to come up with something even newer - This Soul, Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop & Reggae influenced singer/songwriter, rapper & poet draws his inspiration from “life and all its art-forms” to give you meaning-laced lyrics and unforgettable hooks, sung with a soulful voice as big as his hair; Keep your eyes and ears open for him because his sound is one you’ll definitely want to hear !
Born in November 1991 at the then West London Hospital to Grenadian parents, Jerome enjoyed his academics with a great love for Literature as well as Sports, Art and Drama throughout school, but recalls always being “obsessed” with Music from a very young age and has been writing poetry & song-lyrics from the age of 8 - He even had a poem published in a children’s anthology when he was 9 years old... Not bad for a Primary School kid !
Though not having a Musical background as such themselves, his family’s own love for Music meant him appreciating his parents vinyl’s from the likes of Bobby Womack, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Luther Vandross & Whitney Houston (To name a few) and all the latest Reggae and Soca tunes from the Caribbean, whilst raiding his older brothers CD collection for the latest R&B & Hip-Hop albums that he loved. He cites artists such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Beyonce Knowles, Aretha Franklin, Lauryn Hill, Emeli Sande, Boyz II Men, Whitney Houston, Prince, Musiq Soulchild, Usher, Jazmine Sullivan, Luther Vandross, Miguel, Janelle Monae, TLC, Mary J Blige, P!nk, Tupac Shakur, Nas and Aaliyah as just some of his biggest musical inspirations.
Now currently studying a BA (Hons) in Creative Musicianship at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance and honing his craft, whilst working on his first independent release and coordinating his own artistic events, Jerome hopes to be revered as an artist and songwriter in his own right and be given the chance to work with the greats that he looks up to.
