Alana  Patmore is a singer/songwriter from Sydney. From an early age, it was obvious that she was destined for a creative life. Seemingly singing before she was able to talk, Alana has spent her formative years honing her craft and continues to work towards enhancing and exploring her artistic talents through various competitions and musical endeavours. As an award-winning songwriter, Alana understands the effort and emotions that go into every layer of a song and continues to grow and mature as an artist by capturing her imaginative as well as life experiences through music. Pursuing opportunities to showcase her voice and songwriting abilities, Alana entered a professional recording studio in 2014, taking her talent to the next level.

“Hi! My name is Alana Patmore, I’m a singer songwriter. I come from jazz roots, but I write predominantly pop, indie, pop rock, alternative, but I also venture into jazz, funk, and RnB. I like to write about life and experiences of life (in my inexperience), and I like to tell stories with my songs. I can also always write a song about crushing on someone, or about a breakup. Usually, I write with a guitar, and sometimes I venture onto the piano. “
