*** Edwyn Collins ***
Best known for his 1994 hit 'A Girl Like You', Edwyn Collins has earned a reputation for his intelligent song writing and satirical wit. He went solo in the eighties after leading Scottish punk outfit Orange Juice.
In 2005, Edwyn suffered two cerebral haemorrhages. He underwent successful surgery and has since been on a path of rehabilitation.
With his new album 'Home Again' which was recorded prior to his surgery, Collins has released one of the most affecting records of 2007.
His performance at the BBC Electric Proms will be his first in three years.
*** Sam Isaac ***
Sam Isaac played the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury 2007 and now he will join us as part of BBC Electric Proms Introducing...
Rallying friends to help make artwork, do recording and direct music videos, Sam Isaac keeps his part of the bargain by donning an acoustic guitar and making music.
One of the hardest working artists in the UK, Sam plays anywhere. From venues across the country to many fans' living rooms, Sam is a true troubadour, boasting a gentle voice and insightful songwriting.
