“The Point” is Alan Fletcher’s first album release under the Americana/Alt Country banner and follows on from the release of the EP, “Dispatches”, in June 2022.
Produced by Lachlan Bryan and Damien Cafarella (Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes) at End of The Road Studio in Melbourne, “The Point”, showcases Alan’s particular take on the world – drawing influences and inspiration from singer songwriters such as John Prine and Guy Clark.
“When I began this journey with Lachlan and Damien I expected to, with luck, write and record a few songs that might get a release. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would have produced such a substantial body of work over the last 18 months”, says Alan.
For over 27 years, Alan has portrayed the character, Karl Kennedy, on the iconic Australian television drama, Neighbours, which makes its anticipated return in 2023. He has also appeared in Cop Shop and in the US series, The Love Boat.
Alan’s 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.
Alan Fletcher – “The Point” – is out through MGM Distribution – today, Friday 10th February 2023.
