Is Jacob Collier dating someone? Here's a scoop on Grammy 2021 Album of the Year nominee's relationship status
Even though he doesn't have a stellar fan following, he has already bagged four Grammys
Jacob Collier has been nominated for the 2021 Grammy Album of the Year Award, that was announced on Tuesday, November 24. Collier's album, 'Djesse Vol. 3' landed in the prestigious Big Four category, beside Jhené Aiko, Black Pumas, Coldplay, Haim, Dua Lipa, Post Malone and Taylor Swift. Not just that, the 26-year-old also got nominated for best R&B performance ('All I Need', featuring Mahalia and Ty Dolla $ign) and best arrangement, instruments and vocals ('He Won't Hold You,' featuring Rapsody). Now people want to know who is the lady luck of this super talented young musician.
The London-based artist of British and Chinese descent, Jacob Collier, was born on 2 August 1994. He went on an unconventional path to success in the music industry, despite gaining international fame from YouTube covers, similar to his fellow Grammy nominees Justin Bieber and Chloe x Halle. Even though he doesn't have a stellar fan following, he has already bagged four Grammys — Two Grammys each in 2016 and 2019 for arrangement, instrumental or a capella; and arrangement, instruments and vocals. In his 2016 album, 'In My Room,' he took Brian Wilson’s advice quite literally with its complex and multilayered home recordings and hit No. 3 on the Billboard jazz albums chart.
In 2015, he collaborated with Ben Bloomberg, a sound engineer at MIT Media Lab, to design the "Harmonizer," his own instrument that allows him to sing multi-layered harmonies in real-time. "The thing with music education is that it is good at teaching technique, but not texture. You only learn about that from listening to music and experimenting on your own. For me, it’s about feeling an instrument," he told The Guardian. "It’s a backwards way of doing it; most people start learning an instrument, and their playing is governed by their technique. But, for me, I knew what sounds and grooves I wanted to create, I just had to find out ways to achieve them," he added.
According to Dating Celebs, Collier is currently single, doesn't have a lady love in his life. In a 2016 interview, while discussing dating advice to a video host, he said if you like someone you should just ask that person "out for a date."
As the Grammy Award winner currently doesn't have any girlfriend it seems like his whole focus is only on music composition.
