description

Jerome's school was a home filled with non-stop music; whether that was bootleg CDs of Rare Groove from East London's Sunday markets to late 90s R&B on The Box or family favourites; Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green, Chico DeBarge, Jill Scott. He learnt his prodigious vocal craft of ad-libs and harmonies by listening to Brandy's '98 LP 'Never Say Never' on repeat.

The stutter disappears when he sings, freeing his voice as it's transformed into an instrument.

Jerome describes his sound using the acronym FOE, standing for "Freedom of Expression" and "Fusion Of Everything". His music is a space for him to dissolve boundaries and binaries.

"As soul beings we are all a mixture of masculine and feminine; a mixture of our Mum and our Dad". His fine falsetto explores a register that can read as masculine or feminine. The romantic story that runs across the two vinyl sides of "That Secret Sauce" is told without specif
