Jacob Collier is set for his Norwegian debut at Maijazz 2017. We are delighted to present this young, exceptional multi-talent from England who has received millions of views on YouTube since his teens, where he has become rapidly noticed by appearing as an entire band – solo! He plays all instruments, with multi-voices and beatboxes, synched up to videos of himself in all the roles, to the viewer’s absolute amazement. Not only is the performance amazing, but so is the especially creative arrangements of well-known tunes. At the age of 22, he has transformed this concept into a must-hear, must-see one-man showcase.
Here’s what the jazz establishment are saying about Collier:
“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)
“I am a big fan…great chords, great arrangements, great singing!” (Pat Metheny).
“Staggering and unique – jazz music’s new messiah.” (The Guardian).
“F***ing unbelievable!” (David Crosby).
