Jerome Gichie grew up in the community of Albion in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
He thought it was natural for him to chose music as a vehicle to push into stardom because both his parents are music lovers, hence he fell in love with it from a very tender age, and tender he was when he attended his very first Reggae Sumfest he was only nine but he made the decision then to become an artiste
18 Karat Reggae caught up with Jerome Gichie running errands on the streets of the resort town of Montego Bay, where he controls a slice of the local market for porridge and cakes, Jamaicans are well known for loving their various porridges in the morning with baking and this lucrative market provide the young entertainer with the capital for investing in his career
Jerome sings about the struggles of working in the street and the long hours and the fruitless rewards, being encouraged by his parents not to give up but rather persevere, he is mindful of the options around him and the consequence of erroneous behavior
Jerome is a young man not only trying to break out of his mold but trying to find his place in the universe, there is a cry for freedom in his music a deep search for clarity and understanding of the unknown. He fuses music with his thoughts and provides a rhythmical soulful harmony with a deep perspective on life,s challenges.
There is much room for improvement In Jerome’s music and that will improve with more experience and better funding but there is no lack of zeal nor determination on Jerome’s path and we look forward to hearing more tracks from this young entertainer.
