Tayo ‘Scorcher' Jarrett is already a firm favourite on the underground grime scene. The north London resident is now priming up for a national audience.
Over the past couple of years Scorcher has released ‘Audio Wave' which had an overwhelming response obtaining 40,000 free downloads, released singles ‘It's All Love' feat Talay Riley, Wretch 32, Kano and Bashy, ‘I Don't Care' feat Loick Essien, ‘One Time' feat Fekky and ‘Simply The Best 3', another hugely successful underground mixtape.
Late 2011 saw Scorcher's career broaden on the whole as an entertainer playing "Kamale" in Channel 4's highly rated Drama "Top Boy". The series received a profusion of positive feedback championing the show as one of most realistic of their kind. "I didn't ever really consider acting before, the casting director saw a promo Bashy, Wretch 32 & I did for a track called Ransom which involved some acting and he liked what he saw! I went down to the casting to give it a try and they really felt my presence. It was a blessing to be a part of the project and of course work with Kane & Ashley" Scorcher talks of how playing Kamale came about. The series caused a lot of commercial interest as well as being covered by many prestigious urban platforms including a special Top Boy cast cypher for Soul Culture.
Scorcher appreciated the praise he received for Top Boy, but didn't want to stray from the main focus; music. He went back to the musical lab, creating some of most advanced music he has ever produced. Scorcher had been on an incredible musical rollercoaster, and by this time was ready to ride the coaster with his hands high in the air. Scorcher remained in the public-eye featuring on some heavyweight all-star tracks/remixes including Kano's "ET" & Ghetts' track "On A Level".
Scorcher has been nominated for a MOBO Award, been on tour supporting Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg, performed at Glastonbury and Wireless festivals and PA's up and down the country as well as receiving radio and TV playlists at BBC Radio 1 and 1xtra, Capital Xtra, Kiss FM, Bang Radio, The Box TV, MTV, Kiss TV, Flava TV, Channel AKA and steady support from platforms/publications such as Channel 4's freshly squeezed, SBTV, NME, StupidDope, Soul Culture, RWD Mag, GRM and many, many more.
Scorcher is currently gearing up for the promotional campaign for his new age singles and EP release, watch this space!
