FACEBOOK EVENT
FREE ENTRY / FRONT BAR

I have a new project I’m very excited about it’s called Bakers Daughter and I’m currently working on an album.

I’m going to be doing shows in Hobart as part of Festival of Voices in the middle of the year and I’m doing some local shows in the lead up.

Joining me will be Clare Moore on vibes, Stephen Hadley on bass, and Pete Farnan on guitar.

I look forward to road testing the new songs and sharing them with you up close and personal in the front bar of The Retreat.

A couple of years back, I had a really successful Tuesday residency in the front bar at the Retreat Hotel. Steve Kilby came to one of the shows and wrote-

“First of all - what a band..Alyces songs are special and she delivers em in a very compelling manner often staring out at the audience with the gaze of a dazzled innocent.

The words and the singing all added up to a rather enchanted evening… I was thoroughly bewitched by the wonderful music and the door it opened into a very cool and groovy world”

Bakers Daughter (aka Alyce Platt) brings to life, tales from her deep dark past drawing on her extensive life experiences and some of these might even be true!

Her indie-pop music is a pastiche of original and nostalgic sounds wrapped around lyrics of love, loss, friends and strangers.

Stumbling through obstacles of self-doubt and paranoia she is not afraid to confront the darker side of life. Her songs have a depth and melancholy that can suddenly turn around and become oblique, uplifting tunes with haunting melodies and dreamy soundscapes.

Catapulted from the suburban jungle of the 80s into a ubiquitous television career, Bakers Daughter highlights stories and observations from growing up in the suburbs to living in St. Kilda with super hero’s, cowboys in the attic and the KGB.
