No Sleep in the CLE Podcast with Justin Markert and Welshly Arms


On this episode of No Sleep in the CLE, Justin Markert interviews Sam Getz and Jimmy Weaver from the Cleveland band Welshly Arms, who are releasing their debut album this week and will be performing at the House of Blues in Cleveland on Saturday May 9.

They talk about how the band got started, the agony of choosing an album/band name that isn't too goofy and isn't too serious, the power of no, tips for local bands, and, through a series of strange coincidences, realize what a small world it is.

Today's episode includes music from Welshly Arms and Midnight Passenger.
