Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

Jacob Collier Makes History By Becoming First British Artist Of All Time To Win Grammys For First Four Albums

*UK singer and multi-instrumentalist takes his total career Grammy haul to five*


Trailblazing 26-year-old singer and multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier made music history today as he became the first British artist of all time to win Grammys for each of his first four albums; a major feat not achieved by even the most prolific of UK Grammy winners including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, David Bowie, Coldplay, Adele and Amy Winehouse. Collier took home the award for Best Arrangement, Instruments And Vocals for his track He Won’t Hold You (feat Rapsody), and now boasts a total of five Grammy wins from seven nominations across his first four albums.

 

He Won’t Hold You’ is taken from Djesse Vol. 3, the third instalment of Collier’s ground-breaking Djesse album series released on Hajanga/Decca/Interscope and featuring guest appearances from Daniel Caesar, Jessie Reyez, Kiana Ledé, Kimbra, Mahalia, T-Pain, Rapsody, Tank and The Bangas, Tori Kelly and Ty Dolla $ign and was written, performed, recorded, arranged, produced and mixed almost entirely by Collier himself in the music room of his home in North London.

 

Jacob Collier:

 

Thank you so much to Rapsody for being a stupendous part of this song and bringing a beautiful poetic nature. This is an incredibly exciting time to be an artist and I’m super thrilled to accept this award.”

 

Famed for an almost unrivalled level of musicianship, technical virtuosity and creativity, today’s landmark achievement caps what has been a momentous twelve months for Collier which has seen collaborations with the likes of Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Mobo Award-winning Mahalia and R&B superstar SZA, multiple appearances on high-profile TV shows around the world, and the announcement of a huge 100-date world tour.
