“One of the pillars of British indie rock.” - The Guardian "To say that Edwyn is feted by the UK indie community would be an understatement. The former Orange Juice man can barely walk down the street without a member of Franz or The Cribs bursting out of a café door and laying down their cape in front of him." - NME
Hailed as one of the pillars of British indie rock, the revered work of the iconic Scotsman Edwyn Collins spans generations and genres a like.
The one-time frontman of 80s post-punk band Orange Juice has been behind some of the most distinctive contemporary Indie albums of the last 30 years including Primal Scream, Franz Ferdinand and Belle & Sebastian.
Despite suffering a cerebral hemorrhage in 2005, Collins went on to release 3 full-length albums with ‘Home Again’ in 2007, ‘Losing Sleep’ in 2010 and this year’s ‘Understated’. These works are a true testament to Collins’ determination to write, record and perform; a portrait of a truly untiring and gifted artist.
We are thrilled to announce that Edwyn Collins will be touring the country in early 2014, playing a string of dates across the country. Don’t miss an evening of northern soul-inspired pop played by the legendary artist that is Edwyn Collins.
