Alyce Platt's Biography

Alyce Platt is a talented performer and actress.  Known for her many roles on television and her musical performances, Alyce is loved and admired by all.    

Australian audiences first met Alyce when she launched her versatile career in the early 80s as a house-hold name on Sons and Daughters and Sale Of The Century.  

Since then she has had many featured roles in Australian dramas, theatre and film including On The Beach, Blue Healers , Good Guys Bad Guys , A Country Practice, Neighbours, State Coronor, Janus, Halifax fp….Torch Song Trilogy, Sweet Charity, Love Letters, Cellophane Ceiling, and Les Liaisons Dangereuses.  

This year Alyce performed her most challenging role to date, in the critically acclaimed street theatre performance of ‘Habits of the Heart’, portraying the life of a St.Kilda prostitute. She has also just finished filming a short film- A Kafkaesque, B-Grade, Burlesque, Film Noir-‘Cherry Bomb.’  

Currently Alyce is stirring things up in Channel 7’s acclaimed new drama, City Homicide, in her role as the temptress character, Lorraine Sparkes.  

Less is know about Alyce’s music career.  

Her first CD, ‘Cowboys In The Attic’, which appeared in the indie music charts in 2000 under the name of ‘Baker’s Daughter’, received critical acclaim and sparked international interest, leading to gigs at the ‘Mink’ and ‘The Gig’ on Melrose in L.A. in 2001. Alyce then recorded her debut album, ‘Beautiful Death’ with Melbourne musician J.P.Shilo of the Hungry Ghost and recently released her live album ‘Live from the Vault’. She is regularly heard on Melbourne radio PBS.   Alyce has been writing and forming her musical direction for some time. From an early age she started playing guitar and writing songs.  

In 1998, Alyce aligned with Pete Farnan from Boom Crash Opera and over the next two years they performed residencies at various venues around Melbourne.  

Alyce’s most recent live performance is all the pretty little horses, a ‘sophisticated chanteuse’ where she performs her own original music along with the songs of Marianne Faithful, Ella Fitzgerald, Leonard Cohen, Jacques Brel, Velvet Underground, P.J. Harvey and Nick Cave. Together they blend to create an… emotional and revealing journey… about love, loss and frailty…. A little yearning, haunting melancholy with a sensual edge. Alyce considers it to be her most dramatic musical adventure.
