If you recently caught Eddi Reader’s shows in Melbourne and Sydney, you hopefully arrived early enough to see the support act. And if you did, you’ve probably been raving about her. Because Alana Wilkinson is pretty special.
Delivering a quirky mix of folk, pop, and punk, this Melbourne singer-songwriter has wowed me with her track “Show You Mine.” There’ll be more music soon, with Alan planning on writing, performing, filming, and uploading new music as she embarks on a road trip across Australia. She’ll busk and play parlour gigs and both scheduled and impromptu performances in bars and café, so keep your ear to the ground for them.
“I wanted to do something different”, she explained in a press release. “I decided that 2017 was going to be the year where I really focused on music, so I’ve quit my retail job and I’m going to follow my feet for a few months.”
The songs she writes on her upcoming adventures will join an already massive repertoire of originals, She’ll handpick the best to feature on her debut album once she returns home. And before all THAT happens, Alana will return to Melbourne to play shows with Bob Evans. If you’ve got tickets to his shows, make sure you arrive early for Alana’s set!
