Concord Music Publishing announces the renewal of the worldwide publishing agreement of multi-Grammy award winning artist, songwriter, composer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist and producer Jacob Collier.
The deal is effective immediately and will include Collier’s full catalog and future works.
The 26-year-old British musician rose to fame creating music in his bedroom in London and becoming a viral sensation on YouTube.
Quincy Jones noticed Collier early on and signed him to his management company.
This year, Collier has been nominated for three Grammy awards including Album of the Year for Djesse Vol. 3, Best R&B Performance for All I Need featuring Mahalia and Ty Dolla $ign, and Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals for He Won’t Hold You featuring Rapsody.
This brings his Grammy total to seven nominations and four wins.
As a songwriter and collaborator, Collier co-wrote and performed on SZA’s new single Good Days which has risen within the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Global 200 and reached No.1 on US Spotify and US Apple Music charts simultaneously.
He also cowrote two tracks, Cry, Cry, Cry and Church, off Coldplay’s Everyday Life, which is nominated for Album of the Year alongside Collier’s Djesse Vol 3.
Working with Daniel Caesar on multiple projects, Collier cowrote Restore The Feeling from Caesar’s album Case Study 01 which peaked at No.3 Billboard Top R&B albums chart.
Collier released Djesse Vol. 3 in August 2020, as the third part of a four-part album series. It features artists such as Ty Dolla $ign, Daniel Caesar, T-Pain, Mahalia, and Jessie Reyez.
He has also collaborated with some of the biggest names in Jazz throughout his career, including opening for Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea.
Collier made his late-night television debut, performing All I Need on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with collaborators Ty Dolla $ign and Mahalia and most recently on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Showcasing another song from Djesse Vol 3, he performed alongside Tori Kelly for Running Outta Love on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Collier is performing via live streams on his Instagram, on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series as well as partnering with organizations such as TED and Global Citizen, where he teamed up with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for a virtual benefit to raise money for Coronavirus relief.
In January 2021 Collier released The Sun In Your Eyes – Voice Memo a track that was recorded on his phone.
The final part of his four-part album series, Djesse Vol. 4, is expected to be released later this year.
