The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.
July 9, 2020 | Colin Marshall -- Polymath musician Jacob Collier has been championing this style of one-man-band music videos since 2012, singing every note and playing every instrument. His cover of Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing"earned him a devout ESwomen following at the age of 19, and he hasn't slowed down since. The London wunderkind owns four Grammy Awards already, including two at the age of 22 in 2017, and his evolution as a bandleader has been evident in his live performances ( like when he came to NPR for a Tiny Desk concert last year). Now 25, and with nearly a decade of experience producing every aspect of his own music from his home, Collier is uniquely positioned to crank out his best work from quarantine. In this video, each of the four parts was recorded in a single take. Pay close attention ; it's easy to get tripped up inside Jacob's head as he arranges this Rubik's Cube of a video production, which feels both like a magic trick and a no-strings-attached bedroom session.
Since the pandemic hit hard in March, Collier has been hustling in his Internet-famous room. He's played duets over Instagram Live with the likes of Chris Martin, JoJo and Daniel Caesar, recorded a song in his bathroom, and he's in the middle of releasing his ambitious four-volume record, Djesse. The last song in this video is the premiere of his new single "He Won't Hold You," which will appear on Vol. 3, due out later this year.
"All I Need"
"Time Alone With You"
"He Won't Hold You"

Does someone else feels that they have heard melody on 7:42 to 7:53 on another song? It sounds sooooo familiar to me, but I can't recognize it. HELP.

You know what is blowing my mind right now? There's a curved mirror just above the left monitor speaker and it's showing at least two of the Jacobs: drum Jacob and piano Jacob. This attention to detail is just incredible.

He can't just do an amazing musical presentation in his room, but also a state of the art crop screen video, that would leave any professional filmmaker envious.

9:19 if I know Jacob, he probably intentionally clapped his hands at three different speeds to create some godly poly-rhythm yet to be discovered. Someone get Adam Neely on it

First judgmental thought - 'ah, you can't really have one person playing everything, digitally layer it up and it have any kind of real soul.' Several seconds in - *eats words*. Man has more musical talent in his nose-hairs than most of us have in our entire geographical region.

Probably the most impressive thing is at 10:29 where bass Jacob finishes what he's saying then comes in perfectly on a harmony note without any guide notes being given nor any count-in, all in the space of a fraction of a second. Of course it's quite possible (likely?) that he overdubbed any mistakes afterwards, but I like to imagine he just hit it first try.
