Hailed as one of the most prodigious and innovative musicians of his generation, witness the two-time Grammy Award winner's virtuosity in this debut concert.
Jacob Collier has proven himself worthy of every superlative that has been used to describe him. Hailed as one of the worlds most prodigious and innovative musicians of his generation, the London-based autodidactic multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer, arranger and producer is a two-time Grammy Award winner at only just 23 years old.
Defying labels in his music but often referred to as a jazz genius, the young virtuoso grew up in a musical family and first rose to popularity when his homemade multi-track YouTube videos went viral. Colliers musical style is a fusion of jazz, a cappella, groove, folk, electronic music, gospel, soul and improvisation, and often features extreme use of re-harmonisation. His impressive interpretations of popular songs attracted legendary fans in the jazz community including record producer Quincy Jones who was so impressed, he signed Collier up to his management company.
In July 2016, Collier released his debut album, In My Room, recorded, composed and produced entirely by him in his London home. Critically well-received, the album went on to top jazz charts and win him two Grammys. Dont miss this opportunity to witness his multi-instrumental, multi-visual performance on stage.
