Multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer, arranger, producer and 2-time GRAMMY winning Jacob Collier will launch his ambitious new album project Djesse with four UK concerts this month, including Brighton.

His UK Tour dates are:

Monday, Feb 18, 2019 - Brighton - Concorde 2

Tuesday, Feb 19, 2019 - Bristol - Trinity

Wednesday, Feb 20, 2019 - Manchester - Gorilla

Friday, Feb 22, 2019 - London - Hackney Arts Centre

Spokesman Joe Baxter said: “Having undertaken a wildly acclaimed 200-date solo world tour in support of debut album In My Room, the much lauded 24-year-old Londoner will be taking his new 4-piece band across the UK this month with shows in Brighton, Bristol, Manchester and London.

“The tour will see the first UK performances of songs from Djesse, the first volume of which was released in December and features Metropole Orkest, Voces8, Take 6, Laura Mvula and Hamid El Kasri. The album was the first of four to be released by Collier as part of a hugely ambitious project that represents a journey through his lush musical palette; from full scale orchestral to acoustic to soul to jazz to electronic. Volume 2 is scheduled for release in May with Volumes 3 and 4 being released later in 2019.

“Jacob Collier is largely self-taught, and the viral YouTube videos he began posting from his London bedroom caught the attention of Quincy Jones and made him a star. He won two GRAMMYs for his 2016 debut album In My Room. His quick rise led to collaborations with the likes of Herbie Hancock and Hans Zimmer, a performance with Pharrell, a Ted Talk, a BBC Prom and even the recomposition of Samsung’s ringtone.”
