ABC Music has today announced they have signed the uniquely talented singer and harpist, Alana Conway.

Currently in the studio putting the final touches on the album, Alana is looking forward to making her mark on the Australian music landscape. ‘FIELDS OF GOLD’ is set to include both originals and covers that will both entertain, soothe and surprise listeners through stunningly beautiful arrangements for voice and harp.
Alana’s song choices include classics like ‘Songbird,’ ‘At Last ‘and ‘When I Fall In Love’, favourites ‘You Raise Me Up’, ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘Fields of Gold ‘, as well as some surprising selections including ‘Foolish Games’, ‘It’s All Coming Back To Me Now’ and ‘Unchained Melody’. With original tune, ‘Time Heals’ in the mix, as well as classical anthem ‘Pie Jesu’, this will be a highly anticipated album from the supremely talented Australia’s Got Talent star.

She has performed at countless corporate events and recently staged her own SOLD OUT event at the Bendigo Cathedral with Mark Vincent, as well as having the honour of singing the National Anthem at the 2012 Cox Plate.
