Just a year on from his debut live shows and young Scottish singer-songwriter, Lewis Capaldi is now set for the biggest headline performances of his career. The tour will follow the release of his long-awaited album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, which couples his honest and heartbreaking anthems with a beautiful humour that has already won him a huge following worldwide.
When Lewis Capaldi’s debut release ‘Bruises’ exploded online in mid-2017 it seemed from an outside perspective to have all the hallmarks of an overnight sensation. How could this 20-year-old with a soul-wrenching voice that sounded like it had been hewn from granite seemingly emerge from nowhere with a song of such emotional depth?
His debut EP ‘Bloom’ brought the year to a close, a stripped-back and almost painfully raw meditation on love and loss from a writer who seemed like he’d already lived several lives and had the scars to prove it. ‘Bruises’, a brooding exploration of love lost opens an EP which saw Capaldi collaborate with longtime Frank Ocean and Lorde collaborator Malay.
2018 opened in the midst of Capaldi finding himself widely plauded from seemingly every critic, finding himself named in no-less than 30 ‘ones to watch’ polls from every corner of the globe. His rapidly developing fanbase ravenous, outstripping the supply for tickets for every show plays, resulting in 3 back-to-back sold out UK and European tours in as many months.
For Lewis Capaldi, it’s becoming more impossible by the day to imagine any other destination than global success...
