DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND
SYDNEY VENUE UPGRADE
SECOND MELBOURNE SHOW ADDED
Due to overwhelming demand, Grammy Award-winner JACOB COLLIER will now play an upgraded all-ages show at Sydney's Metro Theatre on Monday 30th April. A second show at Melbourne's Howler has now been added on Wednesday 2nd May, in addition to his previously announced show on Tuesday 1st May. Australian fans have revealed their love for the UK musical prodigy; with tickets to Jacob's original shows selling out within hours of becoming available earlier this week.
The 23-year old wunderkind has been dubbed by many as one of the most innovative, creative musicians of his generation, rising to popularity through his viral homemade multi-track YouTube videos. Collier's musical style fuses elements of jazz, a cappella, groove, folk, electronic music, classical music, gospel, soul and improvisation, and often features extreme use of re-harmonisation.
His viral hits, including his rendition of Stevie Wonder's 'Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing', earnt him some legendary fans including Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, and Take 6. Music icon Quincy Jones was so impressed by Collier's videos that he later signed him to his management company, Quincy Jones Productions.
Collier's debut album, In My Room (2016), was recorded, composed and produced entirely by Jacob at his home in London. The album topped 23 international iTunes Jazz charts, and earned him two Grammy Awards, garnering critical acclaim worldwide.
