The Renowned Actor and Musician Brings His Americana Sound to Camden and Balham
Support from Lachlan Bryan And The Wildes & Matt Spracklen
Following the announcement of his debut solo album Dispatches, due for release later in the year, Australian singer-songwriter and actor Alan Fletcher has announced two intimate shows in London this July – with limited tickets on sale now:
Monday, 4th July 2022 – The Bedford, Balham
Tuesday, 5th July 2022 – The Camden Club, Camden
“I am incredibly proud of my recent work in the Alt-Country/ Americana genre and I can’t wait to showcase the music in London,” shared Alan.” I have the best in biz supporting me as well.”
Joining Fletcher for both nights will be Australian Alt-Country legends Lachlan Bryan and the Wildes and London radio presenter and musician Matt Spracklen.
The first single to be released from Dispatches, a duet with Alan’s Neighbours co-star Alyce Platt, was released last month. ‘Sorry Is The Word‘ was written by Fletcher and produced by the dream team of Lachlan Bryan and Damien Cafarella, and the release has already been covered by the Evening Standard, Sky News, the Daily Star and Digital Spy among others.
The follow-up track, ‘Meet Me on the Steps of the Bombed Out Church’ – Alan Fletcher’s take on a favourite song originally recorded by Liverpool folk artist Silent Sleep – will be released on May 27th.
ABOUT ALAN FLETCHER:
For 27 years, Alan Fletcher has portrayed the character, Karl Kennedy, on the iconic Australian television drama, Neighbours. He has also appeared in Cop Shop and in the US series, The Love Boat. His first forays into music were with the rock band, Waiting Room, in 2004 – releasing two albums and a single. The band has toured the UK ten times in eight years performing to sell-out crowds and maintaining a weekly residency in Melbourne for 12 years.
In 2020, Alan joined forces with Lachlan Bryan and Damien Cafarella at their Melbourne studio, End of the Road, to realise his passion for Americana and Folk music. The resulting album, Dispatches, slated for release later in the year, was previewed at a special live show during the Tamworth Country Music Festival in Australia in April.
Additionally, Alan Fletcher will be touring the UK in September 2022 with performances of his stage show The Doctor Will See You Now – The Life and Times of Dr Karl Kennedy.
