The 23-year-old is set to perform around the region in cities like Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur.
The Scottish singer-songwriter offers up a dozen songs showcasing his raw yet mesmerizing vocal presence, along with the graceful piano work and introspective songwriting that recently led to his nomination for the 2019 BRIT Awards Critics’ Choice prize.
His hit single ‘Someone You Loved’, a timelessly poignant track that spent seven weeks at No. 1 in the UK reveals Capaldi’s rare gift for capturing love’s complexity in the most simply arranged songs and understated melodies.
The powerful and iridescently beautiful track has had 83 million views on Youtube, since its release just ten months ago.
The music video also features Peter Capaldi (which many Doctor Who fans (aka Whovians) will recognise as the Twelfth Doctor), who is Lewis Capaldi’s (on his father’s side), second cousin once removed.
‘Bruises’, released in 2017, quickly garnered nearly 28 million plays on Spotify, making him the fastest unsigned artist ever to reach 25 million plays on the platform. The poignant and emotive song has had 9.6 millions views on Youtube to date.
After landing a deal with Capitol Records/Virgin EMI Records, he delivered the acclaimed 2017 EP Bloom, in addition to making his debut at major festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Firefly, and Splendour in the Grass. With his sophomore EP Breach arriving in November 2018, Capaldi soon found himself ranked among the top 350 most-listened-to artists on Spotify.
In November 2017, Capaldi supported Rag’n’Bone Man on his European Tour and Milky Chance on their North American leg of the Blossom Tour in January 2018. Capaldi also played on two of Niall Horan’s Flicker World Tour shows in March 2018 and 19 of Sam Smith’s The Thrill Of It All Tour shows in May 2018.
Having recently toured with the likes of Sam Smith, Niall Horan, and Rag’n’Bone Man, Capaldi makes a point of instilling that sense of fun into his live shows – an undeniably joyful experience, despite the heavy-hearted nature of so many of his songs.
“As I was working on the album, one of the main things I kept thinking about was whether I’d have a good time playing these songs live. People might come to my shows expecting it to be very serious, but really I just talk a lot of absolute nonsense and try to connect with the audience like they’re my pals. I’m not up there saying, ‘Here’s another one about a girl who broke my heart’—it’s always much more like, ‘Let’s all just have a laugh, and sing some really sad songs together.’”
On 17 May 2019 he released his debut album, ‘Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent’, which remained at the top of the UK Album Charts for six weeks.
