Folklore presents… ALEXANDER CARSON, a neoclassical, downtempo, composer and songwriter based in London UK. Carson spent the better part of 7 years as the lead singer, and songwriter for genre-fluid quintet Wooden Arms. His debut album “Ellipsism” came out on Diversion Records in April 2019 and we now look forward to celebrating his new release with a special launch show at Green Note in Camden.

“The fragile vocals and piano playing are unmistakably Alex – a distinctive timbre and delicate working of the keys that always reminds slightly of Anthony and the Johnsons” – Outline Magazine
