JEROME GODBOO has been tearing up stages in Canada and the world for 30 years now, leaving a lasting impression on the psyche of his many fans. The local legend of explosive ‘90s rock band the Phantoms, Jerome is known for his totally unbridled vocals and astonishing harmonica skills (which won him the “Best Harmonica Player” award at the Blues Foundation’s 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.) This is the 15th album of Jerome’s prolific outpouring of soul — and though his daily practice of Vipassana meditation grounds and soothes him, he springs to life with an other-worldly energy as he performs.

Jerome assembled GODBOOGIE with longtime friends and musical brothers, all of them world-class performers with storied and award-winning histories of their own. Guitarist ERIC SCHENKMAN is a founding member of 90s supergroup, the Grammy-nominated Spin Doctors; guitarist SHAWN KELLERMAN is a Maple Blues Award nominee and Blues Music Award winner, recently on tour with the Lucky Peterson Band; GARY CRAIG is one of Canada’s most sought-after drummers, recently recording and touring with Bruce Cockburn and the stars of the ABC network TV series Nashville.
These amazing musicians combine to make GODBOOGIE a totally immersive experience. The songs have roots in blues and rock ‘n’ roll, but really defy all the usual pigeonholes.
