Five-Time Grammy-Winning Quincy Jones Backed Jacob Collier Gears Up To Play First Ever Show @ Brighton Dome

Twenty-seven-year-old UK singer and multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier's 100-date world tour in support of his Djesse album project reaches Brighton this month. 

The six-piece band's trip to these shores will culminate in two sold-out nights at the 5000-capacity Brixton Academy in London. 

These dates mark Collier's first UK shows for three years and his first since he made history by becoming the first UK artist of all time to have won Grammys for each of his first four albums.

His music incorporates elements from many musical genres, and often features extreme use of reharmonisation and close harmony. 


He is also known for his energetic live performances, in which he often conducts the audience to sing multiple-part harmonies or percussions.

A decade ago Collier's split-screen video covers of popular songs, such as Stevie Wonder's Don't You Worry 'bout a Thing, began to go viral on YouTube. 

In 2014, Collier signed to Quincy Jones's management company and began working on his one-man, audio-visual live performance vehicle.
