Edwyn Collins Booking Agency Profile

Edwyn Collins, a singer-songwriter-guitarist-producer best known for his time as the frontman of the Scottish pop revivalists Orange Juice and his international solo success "A Girl Like You," was born in Edinburgh. He spent his formative years studying guitar and absorbing the current pop music. With the help of the guitarist James Kirk, the bassist David McClymont and the drummer Steven Daly, he established the Nu-Sonics and set about developing a sound that combined the energy, if not the snarling attitude, of punk with the Byrds, the Velvet Underground and Chic.
Collins worked as a producer for the majority of the first part of a decade, supervising sessions for musicians like his old friend Paul Quinn, the Rockingbirds, A House and the Frank and Walters. When he signed with the U.K. independent Setanta and released the album Gorgeous George, a caustic, sparkling collection of retro-pop headlined by the single "A Girl Like You," he at last got another chance to perform.
A more intimate and acoustic solo album was also in the works, but Collins' sessions were cut short when he experienced two serious brain hemorrhages that left him unable to walk, move his right arm or recall words. He learned to walk, then talk and then sing again thanks to his tenacity and the unwavering support of Grace Maxwell, his wife and manager..

The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
