Salt Lake City’s Jarom Eubanks won’t let American Idol setback derail his music career
SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) – He’s the 20 year old singer/songwriter who puts the “jam” in pajamas.
Jarom Eubanks strolled down Main Street Monday afternoon in the same plaid bathrobe that he appeared in Sunday night on American Idol.
“Jarom Eubanks, some people call me Jo Jo Jerome,” he said introducing himself to judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan.
Like his sleepwear wardrobe his audition was well, odd. He played and sang R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion”.
“Do I get the bling?” he asked afterward.
Richie and Bryan said “no” but Katy Perry disagreed.
“I’m going to say yes because you’re just absolutely weird and I’m totally weird,” Perry told him. “And pajama style. It is a style so you are onto something but you’re a cool bro.”
So instead of performing on the Hollywood stage, Jarom is back to playing in his Salt Lake City apartment but he says this is not the end of his music career.
“I’m working, working at Chick-Fil-A just going full time with music. Going hardcore with the music….Doing shows, making ticket sales and Spotify and iTunes and all that stuff,” Eubanks told News4Utah. “The bathrobe and the pajamas I wear them to every show. There’s actually been times that fans have come to my shows and worn pajamas.”
News4Utah’s Rick Aaron suggested a new nickname for Jarom: The Robe Warrior.
“Robe Warrior. I like it,” Eubanks said. “10 out of 10. Would approve, recommend. 5 stars on Yelp.”
