With the release of his debut single in 2017, Lewis Capaldi became an overnight sensation. His song, Bruises amassed a staggering number of Spotify plays making him the fastest ever unsigned artist to reach 25 million plays on the platform. And while it may seem like the Scottish singer-songwriter simply appeared out of nowhere, he has been steadily pursuing music since he was a child. At just 22, Capaldi’s brooding, emotional lyrics have a depth and maturity beyond his years.
Meditating on love and loss, his powerful songs have an upbeat yet balladic quality. In 2018, Capaldi joined Sam Smith on his European arena tour as well as playing a number of big-name festivals over the summer. He’s about to go stratospheric, so catch him now.
