About Alyce Platt

Alyce became a household name as the star of the Logie winning drama Sons and Daughters and co-host of the top rating Sale of the Century. She has appeared in guest roles on some of Australia’s most acclaimed dramas in more recent times however music is now her main focus.

Alyce is highly regarded by her peers as a singer, songwriter and recording artist. In 2000, she released the EP Cowboys In The Attic (2000) with Pete Farnan from Boom Crash Opera, which sparked international interest leading to gigs at the ‘Mink’ and ‘The Gig’ on Melrose in L.A.

“…there’s been a deluge of female singer-song writers in the past few years. Many have been bland Alanis-clones. But in Melbourne we are lucky to have some originals who are forging their own path…add Platt to that list.” (Cowboys in the Attic cd) – Howzat!

Her debut album Beautiful Death produced by Melbourne musician J.P.Shilo of Hungry Ghost, surprised critics and led to a new burgeoning career as a songwriter and musician.

“Like the artist herself, this CD is unique- a sublime blend of sound and emotion unlike anything else you’ll find in the music stores at the moment.” Time Out Magazine.

Her latest album Funny Little World includes 10 sultry, self penned compositions as well as her take on classics Tar and Cement, Different Drum and Pale Blue Eyes, recorded with the cream of the Melbourne music scene. The retro sounds, haunting melodies and frolicking beats that flavour Funny Little World, reveal Alyce’s fascination with sophisticated 1960’s European pop music. Alyce hopes to enchant all who hear Funny Little World.
