Early Life and Education

Jacob Collier was born in London, England, on August 2, 1994. He is the brother of two younger sisters. The fact that his mother, Suzie, was a violinist, conductor, and lecturer at the Royal Academy of Music, ensured that he was constantly exposed to music while he was growing up. When Collier was ten years old, he portrayed the role of Tiny Tim in the television adaption of “A Christmas Carol: The Musical” that was shown in 2004. In addition to it, he was instrumental in the theater versions of “The Magic Flute” and “The Turn of the Screw.” Mill Hill County High School and the Purcell School for Young Musicians were the two institutions that Collier attended in order to complete his official education. For a short period, he also studied jazz piano at the Royal Academy.

Collier started posting videos on YouTube in 2011, doing multi-instrumental renditions of famous tunes. The split-screen films showed Collier singing each different harmony of a particular arrangement. The videos went viral, with Collier’s version of Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry ’bout a Thing” receiving special attention. Music entrepreneur Quincy Jones was so pleased that he flew Collier to the Montreux Jazz Festival and signed him to his label, Qwest.

Following his YouTube popularity, Collier went on a tour of Europe and the United States in 2015. For his live performance, he performed many instruments in front of a screen that displayed coordinated real-time 3D-captured video loops. Collier used a custom-built vocal harmonizer to perform multi-voice harmonies in real-time. In 2015, he recorded an a cappella rendition of the hymn “Jerusalem” for England’s Rugby World Cup campaign ad.

In 2016, Collier released his first studio album, “In My Room.” The CD, which includes both covers and original songs, was recorded and produced in the music room of Collier’s family house. “In My Room” was a tremendous success, and Collier won two Grammy Awards: Best Arrangement, Instrument or A Cappella for his arrangement of Stevie Wonder’s “You and I,” and Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals for his cover of the “Flintstones” theme. In 2018, Collier announced a four-volume, 50-song album titled “Djesse.” The first volume, published in December, earned Collier his third Grammy Award for Best Arrangement, Instruments, and Vocals for his rendition of Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long (All Night).” Collier earned a Grammy for his rendition of “Moon River” in the second volume of “Djesse,” and another for his original song “He Won’t Hold You” in the third book. In addition, the third volume was nominated for Album of the Year. Collier issued the fourth and last book of the “Djesse” series in early 2024.

Collier co-wrote many songs and sang on one of British rapper Stormzy’s albums, “This is What I Mean,” in 2022. A few years later, he received his sixth Grammy Award for Best Arrangement, Instruments, and Vocals for “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning.”
