Brassroots. Born on the streets of East London 2008. Louder than life.
Brassroots are an explosive 8 piece brass band formed by American trombonist Jerome Harper, whose mission in life is to establish a flourishing brass band scene in our nation’s capital.
In 2010 Harper took the band from strength to strength, setting stages ablaze from Scala to Glastonbury, London Jazz Festival to Lovebox, Secret Garden Party to the Grand Finale of Big Brother live on Channel 4.
Having independently released (and sold out of) their self-titled debut EP, Brassroots have received global radio play from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Rob Da Bank and LA’s legendary KCRW. All this caught the attention of DoRight! Music, who released the Good Life EP worldwide & topped the Jazz charts and racked up over 200 iTunes chart appearances so far.
With a sky-rocketing notoriety, Brassroots are currently enjoying a residency at Rich Mix, one of London’s coolest venues. On the second Wednesday of every month ‘Brassroots Presents’ showcases new acts before taking the stage themselves for an illicit love triangle between Michael Jackson, Gnarls Barkely & a whole load of horns….
This summer Brassroots are very excited to be playing WOMAD, Secret Garden Party, touring the UK & Ireland & generally blowing your socks off… See you on the road or in a field!
