Hailed as a pop national treasure in the UK, one-time frontman of post-punk band Orange Juice, and acclaimed solo artist, Edwyn Collins is responsible for some of the most distinctive and celebrated indie albums of the last 30 years. Collins's extensive back catalogue is legendary, with Primal Scream, Belle & Sebastian and Franz Ferdinand among those toting him as highly influential.
It's been a hard road for Collins since his stroke in 2005, but his recent releases are a true testament to his prodigious talent and determination to write, record and perform. Join this statesman of indie music as he delivers northern soul-inspired pop with exuberance.
Edwyn plays three shows at Sydney Festival (two at the Spiegeltent and one at The Lennox Parramatta) plus a Melbourne headline at the newly opened Kelvin Club
