Jacob Collier - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Jacob Collier
Jacob Collier is recognized as one of the world’s most distinctive, inventive and prodigious young musicians. Based in London, UK, Jacob has been inspired by many sounds – his music combines elements of Jazz, A cappella, Groove, Folk, Trip-hop, Classical music, Brazilian music, Gospel, Soul and Improvisation (to name a few), which culminate to create the world of "Jacob Collier."

Jacob grew up in a family of musicians, and has honed his musical ideas from a very young age. He has embraced the world of the Internet to share his uniquely creative talent, becoming best known for creating his trademark multi-faceted YouTube videos from his music room at home, wherein he sings all the parts, plays all the instruments, and visualises every component with a mosaic of screens. Since his first YouTube upload in December 2011, Jacob’s online social channels have garnered over 70K international subscribers and more than 4.2 million views. With viral hits such as his rendition of the Stevie Wonder classic, “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing,” Collier has garnered a global following, and some of his greatest fans among the elite Jazz community include Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, Steve Vai and Take 6, to name a few.

Jacob has spent the last six months collaborating with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston, designing and building a groundbreaking solo live performance vehicle, which brings his one-man, multi-instrumental, multi-visual format of music making to the stage in a way that has never been seen or heard before. Jacob recently debuted this show at the Montreux Jazz Festival, opening for Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. The Guardian heralded Collier as “jazz music’s new messiah” after witnessing the pre-debut run at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London.

Collier is concurrently working on commissioned arrangements for high-calibre orchestras and bands around the world, traveling to give Masterclasses at various schools and universities, and collaborating with many different musicians, including being featured on Snarky Puppy's Family Dinner Vol. 2 and collaborating with Take 6. Jacob is also recording and self-producing his debut album, to be released 2016, and creating ever more videos to be shared on his online channels. Jacob looks forward to meeting you, one day.
Harleston - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Harleston
With their stunning three-part harmonies, L.A.-based trio Harletson deliver a sweetly soulful brand of pop unheard since the era of the Eagles and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Each 18-years-old, singer/songwriter/guitarists Nathan Harrington, Jackson Singleton, and Weston Wilson show a sense of songcraft well beyond their years while dreaming up a sound that’s irresistibly vital.

Harletson formed in 2015, after crossing paths through L.A.’s open-mic circuit. Although each had come to Los Angeles in pursuit of a solo career, the three connected over their mutual love of ’60s and ’70s rock-and-roll, and decided to take a shot at collaborating. In one of their first attempts at playing music together, the trio tore through of a cover of the Beatles B-side “Don’t Let Me Down” and felt an undeniable chemistry. “The three of us all come from different places in terms of the style of music we’d been playing on our own, but when we covered that song everything just clicked,” recalls Singleton. “Right away we all just knew this was a real thing.”
