Jacob Collier

The gifted young English jazz musician Jacob Collier was born in North London in 1995 into a musical family. By the age of 23 he had won two Grammy Awards, one for his clever vocal arrangement of the TV classic them tune to the 'Flintstones' and the other for his rendition of the Stevie Wonder track 'You and I'. He began his career in 2012 by promoting homemade videos of popular songs on YouTube, many of which went viral. His talents brought Collier to the attention of Quincy Jones' management company which signed him and helped the artist formulate some ambitious plans for future creative work. He began work on his debut album 'In My Room' which was released in 2016 and spawned the two Grammy Award-winning tracks and established the young Londoner as a unique and exciting emerging talent. In 2018 Collier began work on 'Djesse', a four-part album project containing his versions of 50 songs covering an extraordinary range of musical genres. He has now released 'Djesse Vol 1' (2018) and 'Djesse Vol 2' (2019) and the project has lifted him from being a one-man band creating material in a home studio to an international concert attraction performing with a full touring ensemble of musicians.
