Alyce Platt - Beautiful Death
One of the year’s most pleasant surprises. A captivating album from former Sale Of The Century co-host Alyce Platt.
It’s taken her a while – she left Sale 12 years ago – but Beautiful Death shows that Platt has plenty to offer musically.
Produced by J.P Shilo (ex-Hungry Ghosts) and Glenn Lewis (Violetine), the album is a true sonic journey. Eight enticing tracks that reveal their secrets and mysteries with repeated play. There’s nothing really “pop” here – these are atmospheric dreamscapes – but the patient listener will be rewarded.
Listen without prejudice because this is a compelling song cycle that sucks you in with its gentle power. (Sound Vault Records)

“I feel it is also a celebration of Alyce’s talent as a musician and actress. It allows a sharing of not only her unique and original songs and music but also the chance to marry those songs with pertinent thoughts and text, significant to the traversing of this individual journey…
The show has been designed in such a way as to allow the audience to travel into their own psyches voluntarily and in circumstance as in life…..”
It has been a tremendous opportunity as a first time director to work with such a generous and gifted artist….May you enjoy the collaboration as we have….”
