Jerome Thomas Conversations EP

Following a string of explosive SoundCloud releases, the East London singer/songwriter has returned to the scene to deliver his highly anticipated debut EP entitled ‘Conversations’.

Featuring collaborations with one the UK’s most gifted wordsmiths, Coops; renowned producers, El Train, Hurricane, and Talos; and grammy-award winning engineer/producer Ty Macklin (Erykah Badu, India Arie), this impeccably arranged 5 track EP oozes honesty, free-spiritedness, playful yet intellectual wordplay, multi-dimensional rhyme delivery, and sensational vocals.

“‘Conversations’ is socially conscious – it’s my observation of society inspired by real life conversations I have had with myself, friends, and fam. I have penned about subjects shy of the industry today. I wanted to come from a different standpoint and avoid played out topics. It has been a long time coming, and I’m ready for the world to hear the product of my absence”.

A true ‘genre-defying’ masterpiece – expect a perfect blend of RnB, Jazz, Soul, & Hip Hop – consistent with Jerome’s ‘FOE’ mantra (‘freedom of expression- fusion of everything’). Thus, cementing the Londoner in his very own lane as one of the most dynamic and authentic voices to have emerged from the Capital.

In just a year the vocal powerhouse’s musical status has blossomed, headlining sold out shows at the Queen of Hoxton, Bush Hall, and Notting Hill Arts Club; as well as collaborating on projects with industry pioneers Black the Ripper, Che Lingo, Davinche, Etched, Jubei, Technimatic, & Warren Xclnce, to mention but a few.

Nevertheless, Jerome has garnered strong support from stations including Radio 1, BBC 1Xtra, Reprezent, & Radar; and key tastemakers such as SBTV, MTV, & The Good Vibe.

It is safe to say that 2017 is looking like an even brighter year for the Dalston native. With major plans ahead, the release of an extremely relatable record, and a spellbinding sound that the UK has been waiting for; we invite you to enjoy the ride as Jerome Thomas takes the world by storm.
