In our Super Humans podcast series we talk to people who inspire us. In this episode songwriter and Radiohead Drummer Philip Selway and Rambert dancer Jacob Wye share stories of finding your own voice and holding your nerve to step outside what's expected of you.
Philip is the drummer of Radiohead, who after forming as friends in secondary school in 1985, went on to become one of the world’s greatest bands.
Outside of Radiohead, Philip has also enjoyed a hugely successful career as a solo artist, as well as turning his talents to composing music for film and stage. Rambert has been lucky enough to work with Philip, as he composed the music for one of our productions The Rambert Event, which was performed at Sadler’s Wells theatre in London in 2019, and toured to theatres in Paris, Italy and Switzerland.
Philip recently collaborated on a music documentary called Long and Winding Road, that documents his journey on a road trip searching the country for the pubs and clubs that give artists their big breaks, and reflects on why these venues are so loved and very much needed. The film is due to be released in independent cinemas this summer.
