In An Emergency, Dial are hosting a triple headline show at the Queen Charlotte, Dereham Road, Norwich, this Saturday night (8pm) featuring Sam Isaac who has recently picked up a lot of positive airtime on Radio One with his single Sideways, Cambridge-based Linda's Nephew and Luke Leighfield.

Counting Bright Eyes, the Spinto Band and Ed Harcourt among his influences, 20-year-old Sam self-released two mini-albums, both of which received glowing reviews and national radio play, April 2007 saw Sam release a split 10-inch with Luke Leighfield on Mannequin Republic - the new label of Get Cape.Wear Cape.Fly's Sam Duckworth.

He has recently recorded sessions on Janice Long's Radio 2 show, Huw Stephens' Radio 1 show and John Kennedy's Xfm show and has been played by Zane Lowe and Steve Lamacq on Radio 1.

Sam spent the summer touring UK festivals, including Latitude and Glastonbury. A busy year ended with shows supporting the likes of Scouting for Girls and Pigeon Detectives as well as a slot at the prestigious BBC Electric Proms.

Sam's debut single, Sideways, was released last month and featured on the shows of Jo Whiley, Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Zane Lowe.
