Singer/songwriter Megan Jerome has been trending lately—she has just released her sixth album, and plays the NAC in December. A captivating performer, she lifts spirits with music drawn from vintage and contemporary gospel, jazz, and meditative classical traditions. Megan is backed up by Ottawa musicians Fred Guignon, Don Cummings, and Mike Essoudry, aka The Together Ensemble.
“Ottawa’s Megan Jerome has a special flair for smart, sassy, folk- and roots-inspired songwriting…earthy grooving and swirling atmosphere back up Jerome’s earnest, affecting voice and vintage Wurlitzer electric piano.”
– Peter Hum, The Ottawa Citizen
The songs on “Ooh Ahh” are uniquely original and draw on the legacy of jazz, soul, and roots music. The album is full of creative melodic and harmonic twists and turns that trace a path led by irresistible rhythmic grooves and elegant lyricism.
