English multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier has announced his return to Australia. The five-time Grammy Award-winner will tour the country this December as part of his ongoing Djesse world tour.
Collier made his debut on Australian shores in 2019, when he was part of the Brisbane Festival lineup. Just one month prior to the tour, he unveiled his third album, Djesse Vol. 2, the second in an ongoing four-part series of records featuring “various classical-jazz-funk numbers that blend musical genres”. Djesse Vol. 3 came out in August 2020.
