Bio

In the past 12 months, Sydney singer and composer Jack Colwell has emerged as one of Australia’s most compelling musical voices. His dramatic blend of 90s alt. rock, confessional singer-songwriting and classical music has won him rave reviews from Rolling Stone, The Guardian and more, and he has developed a cult-like fanbase both here and abroad.

In 2016, he toured Australia in support of Sarah Blasko, then embarked on his own headline run, concluding with a sold-out performance at the Sydney Opera House accompanied by a string ensemble. After two EPs and a string of singles – including the radio hit ‘Don’t Cry Those Tears’ – Colwell is now working on his explosive debut album

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.
