From BBC Live lounges to a sell out European and UK tour, Lewis Capaldi went from no one to someone in no time at all. The flying Scotsman is a soulful singer songwriter with an unbelievable raw and enigmatic voice and heart-piecing lyricism to match.
Since his debut track ‘Bruises’ exploded online last year, Capaldi has been able to boast incredibly rare markers in his still fledgeling career, whether it be selling a staggering 50,000 headline show tickets, amassing a near 250 million plays for his just 9 released tracks across streaming services & selling out no less than four back-to-back headline tours, with demand outstripping supply at every turn. This all underlined with critical praise, joining the likes of Rex Orange County & Sigrid on the BBC’s Sound Of 2018 longlist, and being added, along with Pale Waves, to BBC Radio 1’s Brit List.
If 2018 has been a remarkable year for the Scottish artist, then 2019 is already shaping up to be even bigger. With his highly-anticipated debut album on the horizon, he will first be taking another swipe at the touring circuit, as support to the mighty Bastille, there’s really no stopping this man in his tracks. 2019 is yours my boy go get em’.
