CEO and founder of Artiste Entertainment and Jermaine Thomas Entertainment and Publishing (JTEP) is an Indie-R&B recording artist, songwriter, producer/engineer and entrepreneur based in the Greater-Portland area of Oregon. A recent graduate from Northern Arizona University, Jermaine has been a musician since childhood where he began singing in church choirs at the age of eight. While extending his education as a classical vocalist, Jermaine has created a unique sound that has been influenced by R&B, Hip-Hop, Electronica, Jazz, Pop, Folk, and Classical genres. An artist with a flare for catchy hooks and melodic lines, this soulful crooner has packed on plenty of vocal harmonies that are sweet on the ears and has produced beats that are sure to make you groove.
A recent college graduate (2018), Jermaine has already performed nationally and internationally, from intimate public performances in Amsterdam, a packed dive bar of Flagstaff, AZ, or joining the local scene of Portland, OR. A supremely versatile vocalist, Jermaine composes, produces, and performs their own original work. However, because of their extensive experience has the repertoire and flexibility for requests.
There are three (3) different performances you can get from Jermaine;
About 2 hours of original content. A nice journey full of energy, intimacy and overall fun.
About 3+ hours of covers. Includes broadway, jazz, blues, motion, contemporary pop, soft rock, country, holiday music etc.
About 1.5+ hours of classical and folk tunes. A recital which, for best experience, requires a piano accompanist (needs at about 1 month notice to arrange an accompanist).
