Following the release of his acclaimed debut EP ‘Conversations’, the vocal powerhouse, Jerome Thomas is back with a mesmerising performance in the new video for lead track, ‘The Stone’.
Directed by Christopher Cargill – whose portfolio includes Giggs and Emeli Sandé – the video is an artistic, fashion driven exploration of euphoria that emulates various stages of an uplifting high. Using the beauty of the natural environment paired with slow motion shots of Jerome immersed in plumages of colourful smoke, Cargill paints a symbolic image of tranquillity that perfectly complements the dreamy, neo-soul induced track, mastered by Grammy Award winning Ty Macklin (Erykah Badu, India.Arie). ‘The Stone’ is one of the lighter more self-explanatory tracks from the socially conscious EP, tackling topics that still remain taboo within the music industry. It is a personal and sincere body of work, devoid of banality, inspired by Jerome’s observations of society and conversations with close family and friends.
The Dalston native has been championed by the likes of The Fader, i-D, Idol Magazine and MTV, as well as receiving key radio support from BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and Rinse FM. Having headlined a number of sold out shows at Bush Hall, Notting Hill Arts Club and Queen Of Hoxton, and aligning himself with revered industry peers such as Hannah Faith (Soulection), Black The Ripper, Footsie (Newham Generals) and Davinche, it is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the talents of this genre-defying artist.
Visually striking, and sonically stunning, ‘The Stone’ is a liberating and powerful statement by one of the most authentic and dynamic voices to make his stamp on today’s music industry.
