Born unto the summer of the new millennium, Jerome Arrigan is a Singer-Songwriter from Cork City. A product of both the new producer-heavy music of his own generation as well as the more traditional acoustic singers of his Father’s; Jerome uses words and sound to express himself in way that is honest and thought provoking. Being lyrically centred from a young age, Jerome quickly progressed to song writing after picking up the guitar at 13. He was soon playing with his signature blend of Folk, Pop and Acoustic Rock.
Dark, contemplative, impassioned and uplifting, Jerome pushes past the boundaries of the stereotypical Boy and Guitar trope with the quality of his lyrical content and his strong melodies. This combined with a ranging, powerful voice means that stories come to life in a way that only Jerome Arrigan can do. His influences move from Paulo Nutini, David Bowie and The Beatles to the likes of Mick Flannery, David Keenan, and Nick Cave.
Jerome has multiple releases on his SoundCloud, an eclectic mix of “Bedroom Singles” he has recorded himself over the past few years. Most recently he has released his song “Pretty Lady” and previous to that a single titled “The Squeeze” which he recorded in his garden in March of 2020, both on Spotify. He has played solo gigs in many venues in and around Cork City and also in Temple Bar, Dublin as the opening act for Ed McGinley. Since then he has taken the lack of opportunity for live gigs as an opportunity to grow his presence and name online.
