If you are in need of a proper mind blowing, just look no further. The best way to describe Jacob Collier is definitely “Polymath musician.” His talent and musical aptitude are unparalleled, sporting a professional (or close to it) level of familiarity on many instruments. Recently, NPR Music featured him on a new episode of Tiny Desk (Home) Concerts, and Jacob found himself in the familiar position of playing every part of his own band.
Piano and keyboard? Check. Drums and percussion? Check. Bass? Check. Four part harmony vocals? Check. Melodica? Check. Handpan? Check. It really is a mind boggling thing of beauty to watch someone so gifted just effortlessly go to work and love every second of it. The three song performance features songs “All I Need,” “Time Alone With You,” and the premiere of Jacob’s new single “He Won’t Hold You.”
For real, make some time to watch this. I promise you won’t regret it. Watch Jacob Collier’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert below. Enjoy!
