A London-based jazz musician and YouTuber won two Grammy awards at the fifty-ninth annual ceremony in Los Angeles on 17 February.
Jacob Collier, who has been posting his compositions on YouTube since 2011, won two awards in the Jazz categories: “Best Arrangement (Instrumental or Acapalla)” for Flintstones, his cover of the animated show’s theme song, and “Best Arrangement (Instrumentals and Vocals)” for original track You and I.
Both these tracks feature on his debut album In My Room, released in July 2016.
