Wes Carr in Perth

WesCarr.jpgWes Carr is getting used to being in the spotlight.

Certainly no stranger to performing, Wes has been writing and playing his own music for year, but after winning the 2008 series of Australian Idol, he’s receiving a lot more attention.

On the first day his debut single, You, was available for download, it was number 1 on the iTunes track chart with almost two and a half thousand downloads which made the single Sony Music’s biggest track download ever in one day.

While winning the number one spot in Australian Idol has never been a guarantee of future success, you kind of get the feeling that we’re going to be hearing from Wes Carr for a long time to come.

Wes was my guest today during my Morning Programme on 98.5 Sonshine FM. It was a real pleasure to chat to him on the phone this morning while he was in Perth for a promotional visit. He promises to return for a concert next year after his album is released.
