Twenty-one-year-old Londoner Jacob Collier is a true one-man band. He’s become known for the YouTube videos he’s produced from the music room in his home, in which he sings every part and plays every instrument on his songs, utilizing a mosaic of screens, which makes the title of his debut album, In My Room, quite apt. Collier also performed, arranged, recorded and produced the album in his room.
With a sound that combines jazz, a cappella, groove, folk, trip-hop, classical music, Brazilian music, gospel, soul and improvisation, Collier has picked up more than 145,000 YouTube followers, 6.5 million YouTube views and fans including Quincy Jones, Pat Metheny, Steve Vai and Take 6.
