With the release of his new project this month, Jerome Thomas is taking his 6-piece band on a UK nationwide tour including a special headline show at The Jazz Café. We spoke to the artist to find out a little more about him via some quick-fire questions.

Jerome Thomas is best known for his distinct, soothing sound, which samples various genres of music from Soul, Jazz, Folk to R&B and Hip Hop. Since the release of his debut EP Conversations back in 2016, the Londoner is fast developing a reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting talents.

Having recently been tipped by Jamz Supernova as a top act to watch for 2019, it is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the talents of Jerome. With the release of his new project this month, he’s taking his 6-piece band on a UK nationwide tour including a special headline show at The Jazz Café on 27th February. We spoke to Jerome to find out a little more about him via some quick-fire questions.
