LA’s multi-talented Mexican-American songwriter, performer and Producer Joel Jerome recently released his new Folk-Pop album Super Flower Blood Moon via Dangerbird Records, and we had a great time interviewing him about it a short time ago. You can still read that here.
Now, he’s also shared a live performance of “When You Land,” shot at the label’s HQ. He recently appeared on KCSN’s 88FIVE live session, as well, performing songs from the record. He particularly enjoyed playing at the HQ which he considers a “home away from home”.
A few different events have been announced featuring Joel Jerome and the new album that you can check out. On July 28th in Los Angeles, Dangerbird Records will be hosting “An Evening With Joel Jerome,” a vinyl release show celebrating Super Flower Blood Moon. You can RSVP to the free show here. Additionally, LA fans can catch him live on July 11th at Zebulon, and July 20th at Golddiggers.
Joel Jerome has become sought after for his work with artists such as LA Witch, La Sera and Cherry Glazerr at his own Psychedelic Thriftstore recording studio. Throughout the pandemic, the collaborative influence of Dangerbird A&R director Jim Fairchild led him to step away from his studio gear and take a simpler approach to songwriting. He then joined forces with powerhouse Producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith) to bring each track to life.
The collection pays homage to the music of his childhood by “nodding to the Latin artists of his parents’ generation”, with additional sonic references spanning Guided by Voices, Angel Olsen and Fleet Foxes.
