Grammy-winning composer-producer-multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier returns to Melbourne this August.

The 24-year old prodigy has been dubbed one of the most innovative and creative musicians of his generation, rising to popularity through his viral homemade multi-track YouTube videos.

Jacob Collier’s new show scales up the concepts behind his original one-man-show to incorporate a band of multi-talented performers playing over 30 instruments, resulting in a tightly synchronised visual experience to accompany classics such as live looping and Jacob’s custom built harmoniser. All of these together provide a new and uniquely ‘Jacobian’ experience — a mix of human and technological elements, with the ultimate goal of bringing together as many people as possible through his incredible music.

Following on from chart-topping and multiple Grammy-winning debut In My Room, Jacob brings songs from his latest offering, DJESSE VOL.1, and yet-to-be released, DJESSE VOL.2, to Australian audiences this year.

Jacob Collier has collaborated with Hans Zimmer and Herbie Hancock, performed a TED Talk, a BBC Proms concert, and with Pharrell Williams at Coachella 2017. He’s composed music for the Dreamworks animated film Boss Baby, is commissioned as an arranger for bands and orchestras worldwide, and teaches master classes as he tours the globe. A must-see for any music fan, prepare to be transported by one of the industry’s brightest talents.
