Watch List: 'Breathe Or Bleed' With Jerome Holloway
To say we were astonished when listening to the live folk/soul stylings of Chicago to Los Angeles transplant Jerome Holloway would almost be an understatement. Passionate and urgently, viscerally soulful, he delivers thoughtful, socially conscious exhortations and emotionally heart-felt sensitivities with a remarkably agile and expressive voice. Whether articulating truth to power or laying his heart on the line, the authenticity of his talent is truly astonishing it is purity and resonance.
Needing nothing more than his guitar and voice to showcase the kind of talent that leaves the listener breathless in admiration, Holloway captivates with a musical sensibility that edifies the soul while entertaining the senses. Driven by the 'hope is that more of us will come to trust and believe in the revolutionary power of LOVE', Holloway is 'convinced that there are no limits. There are only plateaus and all that matters are the efforts we make to move from one plateau to the next...For me music, is an expression of my own effort and process'. His obvious talent has seen him play prestigious Los Angeles venues such as The Viper Room, Hotel Cafe and Room 5, and he has also supported Iron & Wine and Robert Glasper. His 2011 'Sunday Morning Night Music album was followed by last year's 'Troubling Times' single, and here he showcases his breath-taking talent in studio for Audiotree.tv
