‘They’re Screaming America’s Sweetheart At Me. It’s Wild’

Lewis CapaldiLewis Capaldi, the Scottish singer-songwriter behind massive chart smash “Someone You Loved”, heads to Motorpoint Arena Cardiff in March 2020. Born in 1996 and originating from Glasgow, Scotland, Lewis Capaldi was introduced to music as a toddler. At the age of 2, he began learning how to play the drums and the guitar. When he was 9, he began singing in pubs. Committing to music at the age of 17, it wasn’t long until Ryan Walter, his manager, discovered the aspiring singer through a recording on Capaldi’s SoundCloud account. From there, Capaldi’s career took off. He released his first EP, Bloom, in 2017. His first track off the EP, “Bruises,” gained more than 28 million plays on Spotify, reaching that number faster than any other unsigned artist before him. He began touring in 2017, supporting other artists and headlining tours himself, quickly selling out venues. His live concerts continue to be popular. He sold out shows for his Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent Tour before his debut album went on sale. Capaldi connects with fans outside his music too, often sharing humorous videos on his social media accounts.

His debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent released on the 17th of May, 2019 featuring 12 songs including his singles Grace,” Someone You Loved” and Hold Me While You Wait.” Someone You Loved” was Lewis’ first UK #1 and spent seven consecutive weeks at the top.

It’s easy to listen to Lewis Capaldi ‘s breakthrough hit, “Someone You Loved,” and assume that he’s still absolutely reeling from a devastating split. But to hear the 22-year-old tell it, he was already way, way over his ex by the time he wrote his signature bleeding-heart ballad.

BOSTON — Lewis Capaldi is the ugly-cry balladeer of 2019. Lewis Capaldi still hasn’t moved out of his parents’ house after becoming a famous musician and making a whopping pile of cash.

Priority booking tickets are now sold out. Company holds released for general sale from Monday 25 March at 10am. His album, released in May, was one of the fastest-selling records of the year and he has sold out an arena tour.

Before Lewis signed with Universal we were selling 700-ish tickets up in Scotland, and I’d promoted his tour around the rest of the UK in small, 150-cap rooms. We knew we had to build a base ourselves, because you go on the website of any major record company and you’ll find the artist you never hear spoken about anymore; you’re always fearful of becoming one of those.

Capaldi and his team are currently trying to balance giving the debut album its proper due, and working on things like stage design for the first time.

Scottish singer-songwriter, Lewis Capaldi has added an Aberdeen date to his upcoming UK & Ireland arena tour. Capaldi will play to crowds at the North-East’s brand new events venue, P&J Live on Sunday 15 March 2020.

Musically, he’s my favourite artist of all time. I know that probably sounds lame, but it’s true. I love his songs, his voice is incredible, and I have no doubt that when he plays those arenas, he’s going to more than hold his own.

And it turned out to be a great day for Lewis, who has been the biggest name in music of 2019. Capaldi’s second EP Breach released a year later. It also featured four tracks.

Showtimes will be released approximately 3 days before the date of the event. On 17 May 2019 he released his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, which remained at the top of the UK Albums Chart for six weeks.

I don’t want to be asking Lewis, ‘When’s the next song coming?’ I don’t want to put that pressure on. If we can make this album count for something, we should only come with something else when we feel it’s amazing, rather than just chasing the next New Music Friday.

Now Someone You Loved” — the key track from Capaldi’s debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent” — is in the running for January’s Grammy Awards, with music-industry insiders speculating about its chances of being nominated for song and record of the year. Capaldi himself is tipped for a best new artist nod.

Lewis Capaldi released his new EP — Breach in November 2018. Breach contains two new songs, piano ballad Someone You Loved, and the gospel-inflected Something Borrowed, plus his two recently released tracks, the ode to lost love Tough, which has racked up more than seven million Spotify streams, and his current single, Grace, which has racked up more than four million Spotify streams.

Around two years on from his debut live performances and occupying the number one spot on the official UK Charts for seven weeks with his hit single ‘Someone You Loved’, Capaldi is one of the most popular musicians of the moment.

But there’s something else about Capaldi’s fame. He is incredibly likable in person: funny, warm, and implausibly fond of swearing (looking at the transcription of our interview, he said fuck” or fucking” 243 times in the space of 90 minutes). Moreover, he has proved very adept at projecting that likability on stage – where what he refers to as his blether” between songs occasionally lasts as long as the songs themselves – and on social media.

All general tickets for Lewis Capaldi at P&J Live have now sold out, however we do have some VIP options still available, please see details below. Lewis Capaldi and Noel Gallagher’s feud shows no signs of going away any time soon.


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.

Lewis Capaldi has been making everyone howl with laughter over the weekend posting footage of himself watching Niall Horan ‘s music video for ‘Nice To Meet Ya’ for the first time and providing some priceless commentary.

Standing onstage recently at the Royale nightclub here, the singer from Glasgow with the rough-edged voice delivered only a few lines of his chart-topping Someone You Loved” before nearly every member of the capacity crowd took up the song, hungry for the catharsis to be found in bellowing Capaldi’s words about the emotional cost of a loved one’s departure.

With its emotionally resonant, beautifully observed songs about love and relationships, Breach is yet another showcase for Capaldi’s vocal and songwriting talent. In 2017, the 21-year-old released his debut EP Bloom, which has over 200 million combined streams worldwide. Bloom features Bruises, a track that showcases Capaldi’s nimble vocal ability, as he effortlessly slips between smooth baritone, gravelly mid-tone, and haunting falsetto with pinpoint accuracy. Bruises shot to No. 1 on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and has over 200 million combined streams globally.

The prosaic answer is that none of his peers had a song that captured audiences’ imaginations the way Someone You Loved has. It is a breakup track that acts as a kind of evil twin to Adele’s Someone Like You ; that song’s stoic resolve replaced by wounded disbelief. It might also have something to do with Capaldi’s voice – a full-throated, emotive roar that he alighted on after hearing Joe Cocker’s 1969 cover of the Beatles’ With a Little Help from My Friends as a teenager.

The hit song “Someone You Loved” was at number one in the charts for seven weeks after it was released. It is also one of the most popular of Lewis’ on his debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, which reached number one in the UK and Ireland when it was released in May 2019.

Scottish pop star Lewis Capaldi has said he is convinced his success will not last very long. Lewis was the fastest unsigned artist to reach 25 million plays on Spotify, and the first to sell out an arena tour before releasing an album.


Lewis Capaldi was an early developer. At the age of twelve, the singer-songwriter was playing the pubs of Glasgow, Scotland. In 2017, he became the first artist without a recording contract to reach 25 million streams on Spotify. This did not go unnoticed, and Capaldi ended up in the notebooks of several important managers and media figures, touring Europe with Rag’n’Bone Man and Sam Smith. ‘Someone You Loved’ (2018) was the young man’s breakthrough in Belgium. He strikes a good balance between rough and warm and is effortlessly touching. His best is yet to come. Capaldi was recently one of three nominees for the Critics’ Choice Award 2019. This is the annual award given by the British music industry to the names most likely to hit the big time. Capaldi lost to Sam Fender (who played at last year’s Werchter). However, past ‘losers’ include Dua Lipa and Years & Years.

On 14 November 2018 Capaldi performed a cover of Lady Gaga ‘s ” Shallow ” from A Star Is Born live on BBC Radio 1 ‘s Live Lounge 16 To date, Capaldi has played four sold-out back-to-back tours, and in his first 15 months of touring sold 300,000 headline tickets. He is currently supporting Bastille on their 2019 tour ‘Still Avoiding Tomorrow’.

But one man has beaten them to it, with Lewis revealing he has already secretly recorded a song with Niall Horan which he hopes will be on the ex-One ­Direction singer’s upcoming album.

Lewis , who on Wednesday won the Best Track gong at the Q Awards for No1 hit Someone You Loved, said: We did do a song together. I love it. Lewis Capaldi is bringing a unique performance to Belfast’s Ulster Hall on 22 November 2019.

In April, he sold out an eight-date 2020 UK Arena Tour (nearly 100,000 seats) in 10 minutes – the first artist in history to sell out a run of arena dates before releasing a full-length debut album.

It’s hard to imagine things moving faster for a new artist, especially given that Capaldi was discovered after releasing his music on SoundCloud less than three years ago. And while his parents only partially sanctioned a career filled with pub and wedding gigs before that, they’re a bit more tolerant of the choice now.

Keeping up his reputation as the soundest man in showbusiness, Scottish singing sensation Lewis Capaldi has passed on his congratulations to Ferbane on their Offaly Senior Football Championship win at the weekend.

If all the wisecracking seems at odds with his tortured-romantic persona, Capaldi insists it’s no less a product of his real life than his music. The other day his publicist got a call from a reporter who’d heard that he employed a comedy writer, which blew Capaldi’s mind since he doesn’t consider himself all that funny — definitely no funnier than his family or his old pals from home.

After opening for Rag N Bone Man and Sam Smith on their European tours, the Scottish songwriter Lewis Capaldi is performing on October, 30 at Fabrique, in Milan, for one and only Italian date.
