Event Description

Dubbed “the future of music” by JazzWise magazine, London’s Jacob Collier is one of the world’s most distinctive, inventive, and prodigious young musicians. Admired by such jazz icons as Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, and Pat Metheny, his music combines elements of jazz, a cappella, groove, folk, trip-hop, classical, Brazilian, gospel, soul and improvisation (to name a few), which culminate to create the world of “Jacob Collier.” Growing up in a family of musicians, he honed his musical ideas from a very young age, and became best known for creating his trademark multi-faceted YouTube videos from his music room at home, wherein Collier sings all the parts, plays all the instruments, and visualises every component with a mosaic of screens. He then spent a year collaborating with Ben Bloomberg at MIT in Boston, designing and building a groundbreaking solo live-performance vehicle that allows him to bring his “mind blowing” multi-instrumental, multi-visual format of music making to the stage in a way that has never been seen or heard before. Merging extraordinary musical talent with futuristic technology, Collier recently debuted his show at the Montreux Jazz Festival, opening for Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. His electrifying debut album, In My Room, was released in 2016, earning him two 2017 Grammy Awards and prompting NPR to praise Collier as “this year’s wonderkind-to-watch.” Do not dare miss this one!
