UK singer and multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, who made history last year when he became the first UK artist of all time to have won a Grammy for each of his first four albums, will be profiled by the BBC next month for its ‘Imagine’ series.
Presenting a portrait of one of the most creative musical minds of modern times, Jacob Collier: The Room Where It Happens traces Collier’s story from the early years of making music at his family home through to winning his first Grammys and embarking on his ground-breaking one-man world tour.
Featuring intimate and never-before-seen footage, plus contributions from the likes of Chris Martin, Stormzy, Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones and Jools Holland, the film offers a fascinating insight into the world of an artist described by Quincy Jones as “absolutely mind blowing” and by Hans Zimmer as “the Mozart of our age”.
Jacob Collier: The Room Where It Happens goes out on BBC One at 10.35pm (TBC) on Monday May 2 and is available now on BBC Previews. The shows in produced and directed by David Shulman and executive produced by Janet Lee.
