Why See Jacob Collier?
Jacob Collier Brings His Insightful Arrangements To US Shores
At the age of 17, London-based crossover jazz muso Jacob Collier gained a firm international following thanks to his uploads of multi-track, one-man covers of classic songwriters like Bacharach, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson as well as experimental originals. The inspiring young musician managed to parlay this early success into a budding career, based on a keen ear for jazz harmony and arrangement, that's seen him graduate from Youtube prodigy to veteran performer with stints on the stages of prestigious venues like London's Royal Albert Hall and beyond.
Now 24 years of age, Collier is gearing up to tour the states in support of his sophomore album Djesse, which has not only resonated with his considerable online following (his videos have over three million views each and counting) but won the endorsement of the likes of Quincy Jones, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea and KD Lang amongst others. Combining virtuosity, versatility, energy and a can-do attitude (the maestro still records his videos from the back room of his parents house in his home town), Collier continues to churn out ear-turning songs, making the often hallowed realm of jazz and its concepts accessible to a whole new generation of young listeners.
