From Dr. Karl to Americana: Alan Fletcher Strikes a Chord with Heartfelt Lyrics and Rockin’ Rhythms!
Alan Fletcher is a household name in the UK because of his portrayal of Dr Karl Kennedy in the popular Australian drama Neighbours. Thousands of people also well remember Alan’s touring band The Waiting Room that performed their unique rock n roll throughout the UK for ten years.
Since 2019 Alan has focussed on Americana/Alt-Country music, working with Australian producers Lachlan Bryan and Damian Cafarella to write and record an EP and Album of alternatively poignant and very funny songs about life, love, loss and beer! His album has attracted widespread praise.
Engaging, delightful, wistful and original, The Point is classically crafted whilst contemporarily composed. It’s an album that covers a wide spectrum of emotions, that shakes and stirs with infectious honesty. – The Manc Review (mancreview.com)
It is as a live performer that Alan has made his mark highlighted by his two-week tour of the UK in 2023.
Overall Alan Fletcher delivered a show that surprised in the best possible way. He had a fantastic vocal quality throughout as well as some solid guitar playing, but what elevated the evening for me was the balance he struck between thoughtfulness and fun and the strength of his connection with the crowd. It’s safe to say he’s going to appeal to music fans way beyond just those who know him from ‘Neighbours’, and personally I’m very intrigued to see where he’s going to take his music next. – Entertainment-focus.com – Laura Cooney
