Composed and performed by Jack Colwell

A queer song cycle of fire and regeneration

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Jack Colwell returns with Eucalyptus, a finely crafted concept album about closeness, hopeful regeneration, the heat of love and the embers of ending things.

Sprouting from scorched earth after a challenging period in the artist's life, Colwell's sophomore album Eucalyptus animates the unconventional arcs of intimate relationships.

Expect an introspective and diaristic sonic performance of the album in full, carried by Colwell's unmistakable baritone and intricate nylon-string-guitar arrangements. 

After the critically praised SWANDREAM and a two-year hiatus from the stage, Colwell returns with his strongest body of work to date.
