Momentum: Oscar Jarome

South London’s Oscar Jerome has procured quite the remarkable year-to-date. It’s been one that has seen the artist score 6Music playlisting for recent single ‘Do You Really’ (also regularly supported across 1 Xtra, Radio 1 and Beats), sell out London’s Village Underground with man-of-the-moment Thundercat in attendance, and make debut appearances in the US with shows as part of BBC’s Winterjazz Fest and a headline at New York’s esteemed Blue Note. Placing in Jamz Supernova’s ‘Hot New Artists of 2018’ and Clash’s ’18 For ’18’ spelled a busy 12 months from the outset and things continue to accelerate through winter and into 2019 – having joined Kokoroko’s line-up (Oscar wrote the seven-and-a-half-million-YouTube-streams single, ‘Abusey Junction’) and just collaborated with producer Catching Flies on the single ‘New Gods’ (tipped by 1 Xtra & 6Music too), Oscar will wind up the year with a debut headline run the US. Watch Oscar’s COLORS Session here, where he performed ‘Do You Really.

“Really grateful to get this from the momentum fund. It has come at crucial time when I need the backing to get a body of work together. I have some friends that have received it in the past and it really helped develop their careers and get them to the next level of what they were doing. I plan to do the same, thank you!”
