Such Great Heights Podcast: Episode 06

It is always a joy to see friends and peers progress in the Music Industry, especially those who have been consistently working hard creating new music, constantly honing their craft; growing.

I met Alex Carson many years ago in and around the cosy Norwich music community. We had both been promoters, heavily involved in supporting upcoming talent and I had interviewed him for a two-part series I was doing for BBC Norfolk Introducing. Time went on, we both thrived, gaining all the experiences we could muster until our paths crossed once more in London, where we now both reside.

I’d been aware of his band Wooden Arms (Fierce Panda / Diversion Records / Butterfly Collectors) for some time; not only due to the Norwich connection but also for the success and buzz they were rightfully receiving from the likes of BBC 6 Music (a favourite of mine) and The Sunday Times. The release of their album ‘Tide’, along with its beautiful rhythmic title track music video was revered and one which I frequently return to.

Having finally caught the band live last year at The Forge in Camden, I headed to North London to meet with Alex to discuss:

- Music in his youth
- Concert Promoting
- The birth & rise of Wooden Arms
- Being in a 'buzz band'
- Getting championed by BBC Music
- Maintaining momentum
- Signing with labels
- Advice for unsigned artists

Please watch the episode below and don’t forget to subscribe on YouTube so you don’t miss out on any upcoming episode. You can find Wooden Arms on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or on their website.

Many thanks to Alex for his time chatting – always a pleasure catching up with him. They’re currently releasing new music so expect to hear them on the likes of BBC 6 Music again very soon. Make sure you catch them live as their live performance is really special – something we discuss on the podcast!

Until next time…
