About Jacob Collier
Recognized by audiences, critics, and fellow musicians alike as one of the most gifted young artists of modern times, 28-year-old Jacob Collier already has a seemingly endless list of achievements, including five Grammy wins along with 11 Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year in 2021.

As a result his roster of collaborators is astoundingly varied and vibrant. Collier’s voice has been featured on recent songs from the likes of Coldplay, SZA, Stormzy, and Kehlani. In his own projects, Collier has worked with an unpredictable cast of artistic powerhouses, from Malian singer Oumou Sangaré to John Mayer, T-Pain, Ty Dolla $ign, Daniel Caesar, and Tori Kelly (to name a few).

Exploding onto the global stage with the viral success of his multiframe, multi-instrumental YouTube covers, Collier caught the attention of Quincy Jones and under his mentorship released his debut album, In My Room, in 2016, which was recorded, produced, and played entirely by Collier.

Djesse (his most recent four-volume album project) has been a natural progression from the one-man process of In My Room, expanding to include collaborators from all over the world. The resulting volumes of Djesse have delivered on Collier’s ambitious promise, featuring an incredible array of artistic peers and musical themes that encompass everything from orchestral composition to folk songwriting, R&B, rap, and pop.

Ultimately, although Collier has already achieved more than most artists could hope for in a lifetime, he is still restlessly creative. Alongside the upcoming release of Djesse Vol. 4, he has plans for future projects centered on solo piano, orchestras, film scoring, teaching, musical theater, and more.

About Lawrence
As NPR writes, “siblings Clyde and Gracie Lawrence are not your typical pair.” They have been writing songs and listening to countless Stevie Wonder, Randy Newman, and Aretha Franklin records in their family’s New York City apartment since they were little kids. After years of playing together, they officially created Lawrence, an eight-piece soul-pop band comprised of musician friends from childhood and college. The band has since gained a devoted following for its high-energy, keyboard-driven sound, which features tight, energetic horns and explosive lead vocals.

In July 2021 Lawrence put out its new album, Hotel TV, and became the first band to release music under Beautiful Mind Records, the label of Grammy-winning producer/songwriter/artist Jon Bellion, who co-produced and co-wrote the songs on the album. The tracks on Hotel TV have garnered tens of millions of streams across all platforms and have had multiple viral moments on TikTok and Instagram. Most recently, the album’s lead single, “Don’t Lose Sight,” was featured in an international Microsoft commercial, which propelled it into the Top 20 on the USA Shazam Pop Charts. The single also hit #33 on Top 40 radio and was played on over 100 multiformat stations across the country. The band performed “Don’t Lose Sight” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and closed both of their sets at Coachella with it (with the entire audience singing along)!

Touring has been a key component of the group’s rise to success. The release of Hotel TV was supported by the Hotel TV Tour, a 53-city tour across major cities in North America, including sold-out shows at Terminal 5 in New York City and House of Blues in Chicago and two nights at the Royale in Boston, among others. The band followed their Hotel TV Tour with a co-headline tour with MisterWives and then three nights of sold-out shows at Brooklyn Steel, which they curated with numerous special guests and nonrepeating sets. The group has also toured with acts such as Lake Street Dive, Vulfpeck, Jon Bellion, Jacob Collier, Soulive, O.A.R., and Bernhoft and has appeared at major festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Firefly, Okeechobee, Hangout, and Summerfest. TV appearances include Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the Today show, and Last Call with Carson Daly.
