Introducing: Lewis Capaldi

Escape the realms of reality by listening to Lewis Capaldi's otherworldly vocal and expertly-written, endearing songs.

Who?

Lewis Capaldi is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Bathgate, Scotland.

The Sound

Lewis makes gorgeous down-tempo Pop/Folk/Soul music with a low-key stripped back approach. The intimate guitar and piano combinations allow his impressive vocal to take centre stage – as it should. His sound stops you dead in your tracks. You can sense elements of Bon Iver, Tom Grennan, Ben Howard & others but his songwriting style is uniquely his own.

The Story

Championed by his home nation, Capaldi’s talent was identified almost instantly. With solely his debut single released, Lewis sold out King Tut’s in Glasgow – a staple of the Scottish live music scene. He is the fastest ever unsigned artist to reach 25 million plays on Spotify. This summer he was filling tents at festivals across the UK and Ireland before the release of his debut EP!

This all becomes much easier to believe once you hear the music. He has made the BBC’s Sound of 2018 longlist, and it’s off the strength of his debut EP “Bloom” coupled with his captivating live performance which has lead everyone to believe that the sky is the limit for the young Scot.

Essential Tracks

Wrap your ears round the streaming sensation “Bruises” below. The debut single has been played over 29 million times on Spotify.

“Lost On You” is another gorgeous intimate song that you need to hear:
