Actor and singer-songwriter Alan Fletcher has shared his new song, ‘Meet Me On The Steps of The Bombed Out Church‘ taken from his forthcoming EP, Dispatches.
“From the first time I heard this beautiful song crafted by the artist who is Silent Sleep, Chris McIntosh, I have wanted to include it in my repertoire,” says Alan. “Not only does this lilting, melodic love song perfectly capture a sense of deep longing, it also references an important landmark in a city that is something of a spiritual home for me, Liverpool”.
The Church of St Luke in Liverpool was destroyed by fire in the ‘May Blitz’ of 1941. The church has never been rebuilt and stands today in silent testimony to the brutality of war and to the fortitude of Mersey-siders who withstood Hitler’s onslaught. It is a common meeting point for the city’s citizens.
‘Meet Me On The Steps of The Bombed Out Church’ has been produced by Lachlan Bryan and Damien Cafarella at their Melbourne studio, End of The Road. The trio started working together in 2020 when Alan decided the time was right for him to realise his passion for Americana and Folk music. Additionally, Fletcher has announced two intimate shows in London this July, joined by Lachlan Bryan and the Wildes and Matt Spracklen – with limited tickets on sale now:
Monday, 4th July 2022 – The Bedford, Balham
Tuesday, 5th July 2022 – The Camden Club, Camden
