Bio

Jack Colwell leaps back into the spotlight in 2019 with “In My Dreams”, the first single from his forthcoming debut album. Produced by legendary Australian singer Sarah Blasko, “In My Dreams” is a dark, cinematic ballad inspired by a great romance gone awry. The track was mixed by Grammy winner Rich Costey in Los Angeles and features members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

In the past few years, Jack has established himself as one of Australia’s most compelling new musical voices. His breakout hit, “Don’t Cry Those Tears”, topped the AMRAP AirIt charts and spawned an acclaimed remix by US noise-rockers HEALTH. Jack has played dozens of shows around Australia, including a sold-out headline appearance at the Sydney Opera House Studio with a string quartet.

A collab that highlights the best of both artists. Breadth and space with Lonelyspeck's spin, alongside the depth and emotion coming through from Jack's vocals.

Very cool to hear this in a completely different light, sombre yet utterly spellbinding.

Sounds as though Lonelyspeck's touch on this only serves to ramp up the drama. I'm in.
