Virtually everybody loves music, loves listening to it, loves playing it, loves exploring it or just loves being around others who do.
Great artists come and go from our attention, from my attention, as whims and tastes change but every once in a while someone comes out of nowhere and changes everything.
I discovered Jacob Collier on YouTube. It was his enthusiasm that first captured my attention, then his musicianship and then was completely blown away with his command of harmony both technically and emotionally.
Listening to his music, his unusually evocative harmonies and progressions, his unbounded creativity and amazing collaborations has led me to other musicians and styles of music I’d never had thought to explore and discover how much I’d love them.
We had the wonderful opportunity of front row seats to Jacob’s recent Melbourne concert and we left on a musical high that’s not abated since.
