"Jazz’s new Messiah." The Guardian
"An absolute genius... I have never in my life seen a talent like this… Beyond category. One of my favourite young artists on the planet – absolutely mind-blowing" Quincy Jones

Grammy Award-winning composer-producer-multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier will make his first ever appearance in Brisbane this September.

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

Jacob Collier’s new show scales up his original hit one-man-show to incorporate a band of multi-talented performers playing over 30 acoustic and electronic instruments. This multi-instrument-multi-performer creature sends messages to a custom-designed lighting system based on input from the performers, resulting in a tightly synchronised visual experience to accompany Jacob’s signature live looping and 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 his chart-topping and multiple Grammy-winning debut ‘IN MY ROOM’, Jacob will bring the songs from his latest offering, ‘DJESSE VOL. 1’, and yet-to-be released, DJESSE VOL. 2.
