Bakers Daughter, aka Alyce Platt

SATURDAY JANUARY 18 / 5:30pm to 7pm

SUNDAY JANUARY 19 / 8pm to 10:30pm

Bakers Daughter, aka Alyce Platt, is a Melbourne born singer-songwriter, musician, and actor, better known by Australian audiences for her many roles on iconic TV shows such as Sons and Daughters and Sale of the Century. Reframing her past, Bakers Daughter presents her original music and artistic pursuits through the lens of the Indie-pop artist she is so highly regarded as by her peers and critics alike.

“Alyces songs are special..thoroughly bewitched by the wonderful music and the door it opened into a very cool and groovy world” Steve Kilbey, The Church. Like the artist herself, Bakers Daughter’s songs are defiant and sophisticated. They reveal a fascination with 60s European pop, peppered with spoken word delivered in a Gainsbourg kind of way.

Indie Pop outfit Bakers Daughter has a depth and melancholy that can suddenly turn around and become oblique, uplifting tunes coated in a blanket of haunting melodies and dreamy soundscapes. Bakers Daughter’s songs are defiant and sophisticated. 

“Platt – indie chanteuse, expressive singer and clever pop songwriter.” Jeff Jenkins, ABC, 3RRR.
