Getaway Jazz Experience
Megan Jerome - wurlitzer, vocals
Fred Guignion - guitar
Don Cummings - organ
Mike Essoudry - drums
Not to be missed! If you’ve never caught Megan Jerome’s life-affirming performances, you’re in for a treat. Backed by the Together Ensemble – all stellar musicians in their own right – Megan brings a big sound, rich harmonies and vintage keyboards to her original compositions. Variously described as roots, jazz, cabaret and R&B, her songs are really just 100% Megan. By intuitively connecting with her audience, Jerome draws us into her stories, her joy, and her love of life.
“Ottawa’s Megan Jerome has a special flair for smart, sassy, folk- and roots-inspired songwriting and her music's blossoming with her band The Together Ensemble. Guitarist Fred Guignion, organist Don Cummings and drummer Mike Essoudry provide the right combination of earthy grooving and swirling atmosphere to back up Jerome's earnest, affecting voice and vintage Wurlitzer electric piano.” – Peter Hum, The Ottawa Citizen
