Live on the
House of Mince presents Bona to Varda Social Club! A new weekly queer variety show that is centred on showcasing Sydney’s international calibre queer force and talent; all within the heart of our city.
Australian singer/composer Jack Colwell’s songs are informed by his classical training at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, his love of confessional singer-songwriters, and his infatuation with fairy tales and myths.
Born and raised in the suffocating suburbs of far-northern Sydney, Colwell took up music at the urging of his mother, growing into a confident multi-instrumentalist before storming the halls of the prestigious Sydney Conservatorium of Music. In 2015, his debut EP spawned the sleeper hit “Don’t Cry Those Tears”, grabbing attention from Rolling Stone Australia and The Guardian, which attracted significant radio play and led to a remix by US noise-rockers HEALTH. Extensive domestic touring and LGBT advocacy followed, and Jack soon became one of Australia’s most prominent independent artists.
Now, with his vivid debut album SWANDREAM, (already making best of (so far!) lists on NME, Music Feeds, Junkee and 2ser), he’s ready to captivate a global audience.
