Although he's just in his thirties, Roddy Frame wrote his first hit - the supremely catchy "Oblivious" - back when he was just 16 and heading the Scottish band Aztec Camera. Retaining his charisma, and with a fanbase still intact, he's on a UK tour playing songs from his well-crafted album The North Star. Support comes from another Scot in the form of singer-songwriter Astrid, who used to be the vocalist with Goya Dress but is also embarking on a solo career.
