If you’ve never caught Megan Jerome’s life-affirming performances, you’re in for a treat. Backed by the Together Ensemble—all stellar musicians in their own right—Jerome brings a big sound, rich harmonies and vintage keyboards to her original compositions. Variously described as roots, jazz, cabaret and R&B, her songs are really just 100% Megan. By intuitively connecting with her audience, Jerome draws us into her stories, her joy, and her love of life.
Jerome's upcoming recording will be the seventh album for the Stingray Rising Star Award Winner who is heard regularly on CBC and whose performance highlights include the Ottawa Jazz Festival, Ottawa Folk Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest and NYC's Rockwood Music Hall. This will be the third album with her band, The Together Ensemble, whose first album earned Best Bet picks by The Ottawa Citizen and CBC News.
“Ottawa singer-songwriter-pianist Megan Jerome strips her music down to its bare essentials…The pure-voiced Jerome has crafted an intimate and highly personal disc that pulls from folk, classical and jazz sources to build songs with their own distinctive charms.”
—Peter Hum, Best Bets, The Ottawa Citizen
“A captivating performer and fine singer, Megan’s songs are quirky and fun, dark and brooding, rich — like traditional music. Still modern though for all you trad-avoiders — a big grooving sound. I’ve rarely been so entertained and satisfied.”
— Bobby Read (Bruce Hornsby)
