The Dean's Curriculum Taskforce of the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music invites our students and faculty to a special engagement and conversation on contemporary musicianship with Jacob Collier.

About Jacob:

Recognized by audiences, critics and fellow musicians alike as one of the most gifted young artists of modern times, 29-year-old Jacob Collier already boasts a seemingly endless list of achievements including five Grammy wins – which saw him become the first British act in history to win a Grammy for each of his first four albums – along with 12 Grammy nominations including Album of the Year in 2021. His roster of collaborators is astoundingly varied and vibrant, recording and performing with UK music icons like Coldplay and Stormzy, American superstars such as SZA, Alicia Keys and John Mayer, to Malian singer Oumou Sangaré and Moroccan Gnawa mâalem Hamid El Kasri. Each artist has sought out Collier’s distinct musical identity, cementing his status as the conduit for a generation’s ineffable creativity. Jacob now embarks on the finale of his 4 Volume epic Djesse series, with Volume 4 scheduled to be released on February 29th, 2024. Its most recent singles include “Little Blue,” featuring Americana songstress Brandi Carlile, and “Witness Me,” featuring Shawn Mendes, Stormzy & Kirk Franklin.
