Having now based himself in Birmingham, Jericho has been working out of a studio at home. Experimentation with recording techniques and production were the main focus of 2019, and since Jericho has released a new single 'Over' and an EP 'Get It by the Feel' featuring a full band. This year Jericho has just released the first single from his debut album 'Siskin Dreams'. More songs from the project will be dropped during the following months. The album has been inspired by the last year of Jericho's life living in Birmingham.
'Jericho Noguera Exhales Smooth Retro Jazz' - Odd Nugget on 'Future Project'
Starting life as a solo artist, Jericho played small venues up and down the UK from as young as sixteen. Around the same age he also began collaborating on and off with friends and local musicians, some of whom would later turn out to be band mates in the present day. This wouldn't take place until their early twenties, as a separation brought on by their university studies would lead each of them to persue their own musical projects. Jericho collaborated on a duo project called Talk in partnership with friend Jack Baxter, who would later go on to become electronic dance producer Daze Prism. Meanwhile Fabio Thomas (Bassist), and Ben Lyth (Drummer) would join forces in their own band Mysteron, experimenting with an array of synth processors mixed with guitar, bass, and live drums. Mysteron continued following their graduation, while Jericho moved to Bristol and began producing more intimate and esoteric works. His debut EP 'Black Lake' (2018) was released during this time, 'nostalgic, organic, and charmingly lo-fi' were among it's praises, alongside comparisons to Elliot Smiths 'Roman Candle' era and other cult artists.
Necessity would eventually bring Jericho to Birmingham, the presence of both Ben and Fabio in the city was a major draw, and a growing catalogue of songs designed for a full band was in desperate need of collaborators. Jericho moved in with Fabio and rehearsals as a trio began. They embarked on a short tour of the UK to test the waters, and Jericho released their first new track 'Future Project'. This marked the end of Jericho's time as a solo artist and signalled his transition into a new phase. Since then the band has seen the addition of Sam Pugh (Guitar & Keys).
