ANNOUNCES U.S. TOUR TO KICK OFF THIS SEPTEMBER
Debut Album “In My Room” Out Now!
“Collier’s got an agile, fully alive musical mind and a distinct sound and, perhaps most importantly, the willingness to take chances. Listening to his sometimes dizzying debut, you get the sense that he could go in any direction and succeed.” -NPR
“Boundless optimism rides a hurtling six-beat groove in ‘Hajanga,’ just one of the athletically, euphorically virtuosic songs on Jacob Collier’s debut album, ‘In My Room.’ The Harmonies are labyrinthine, the melodies uplifting, the production both chameleonic and playful -endless possibility with the musicianship to back it up.” -New York Times
“21-year-old British YouTube sensation…represents a new way of considering musical geniuses…Prince was not the last greatest living performer.” – VICE
