Barely out of high school, he moves to Japan and experiences its underground music scene as a drummer. The support of his bandmates allows Jerome to discover his love for singing and songwriting. A passion which he carried with him to London, playing in Camden Town's grungy venues and lively pubs as a frontman.
Back in Japan, work on his debut album starts in 2016, recording between the hustle and bustle of the capital at Tokyo's Nanahari Studio and among the clouds of an isolated, homemade studio in the Kochi mountains.
Produced, mixed and engineered by David Naughton (Belle and Sebastian, Robbie Williams) and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Christian Wright (Ed Sheeran, Bear's Den), “Moving in Slow Motion” was released on 23 August 2019. The collection of tunes invites you to tag along on a laid-back ride, from upbeat pop tunes (“On Your Side”), to soul-influenced ballads (“Invincible”), to chilled acoustic anthems (“Old Soul”).
