Bio

Sydney based producer Jerome Blazé makes striking music straddling the line between electronic and acoustic. His sound is as personal and immersive as it is vast and uplifting.

After growing up in the picturesque Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Blazé moved to Sydney to study at the Conservatorium of Music. He found himself surrounded by musicians and mentors such as experimental pop artist Rainbow Chan and renowned producer Paul Mac. 

In 2018, the producer saw off his teenage years with his first full length six-track project, ‘Perspective’ - a declaration of kaleidoscopic electronica that purveys a vast sense of energy and positivity.

Blazé set out to make an impact 2019, releasing a captivating remix of fellow Sydney talent Odette’s single ‘Lights Out’ via Universal. and following up with his single, ‘Chame (feat. Jofi)’, that demonstrated an expanding musical breadth.

In 2020 he released his second EP ‘Open, A Home’, highlighting an increased sense of songwriting and musical maturity, and blending sounds such as saxophones and strings into his already colourful electronic palette. The EP garnered support from Spotify, Apple Music, Triple J and more, encouraging comparisons to the innovation of acts like James Blake and Bon Iver.

‘The palette of sounds he access is uniquely his’
Tommy Faith, Sound Doctrine


‘Not sure whether I'm most impressed with your ambition to make something so grand and explorative...or that you've got the talent to realise that ambition.
Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J


‘It's that blend of electronic music that transports you somewhere, this one is to a place of peace.’
Declan Byrne, Triple J

Nothing blasé about Blazé. This is top shelf textural electronica.

I love how you play with textures and timbres and time. A dreamscape from start to finish.

This reminds me of some of the beautiful folktronica/electronica from the 00's in the best of ways. Lush production, with real heart.
