Lewis Capaldi

“Lewis Capaldi has the kind of deep, textured voice that you could listen to for hours. He finds expressive rough edges, then smoothes them out into the sweetest of notes…Capaldi’s talent is tugging at heartstrings – or rather, pulling at them with all his vocal might.” -TIME

Scottish singer and songwriter Lewis Capaldi premieres the live video for his new single — “Tough” — today. Watch it HERE.

“I’ve wanted to release this song from the moment I finished writing it,” Capaldi says of “Tough,” which he co-wrote, and was co-produced by Jonathan Quamby (Benjamin Clementine, Jacob Banks), and Spike Stent (Ed Sheeran, Florence & The Machine, Frank Ocean). “For me it’s a song about trying to move on after a relationship. I was coming from a place where the worst was over in terms of missing someone and being heartbroken. I was one hundred percent ready to move on, but there are still these remnants of that person hanging around in the back of my mind. So the song is about getting on with things, wrestling with your head, and trying to get to a point where you can find normality and learn to be on your own again.”

Last week, Capaldi launched his sold out U.S. headline tour and performed at Bonnaroo and LaureLive over the weekend. He will also perform at Firefly, Mountain Jam, Splendour in the Grass, Fuji, Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Reading and Leeds, and the Austin City Limits Festival. Lewis has previously toured with Rag’n’Bone Man, Niall Horan, and Sam Smith. Please see below for all U.S. dates. For international tour dates, visit: http://www.lewiscapaldi.com/

Twenty-one year-old Capaldi was hailed as a 2018 Vevo Dscvr Artist To Watch, longlisted for the BBC Sound Of 2018 Poll, and won Breakthrough Artist of the Year honors at the Scottish Music Awards. His 2017 debut EP, Bloom, has over 175 million streams worldwide. Bloom features “Bruises,” a track that showcases his nimble vocal ability, as he effortlessly slips between smooth baritone, gravelly mid-tone, and haunting falsetto with pinpoint accuracy. It shot to No. 1 on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and has over 100 million combined streams globally.

What critics are saying about Lewis Capaldi:

“Lewis Capaldi has captivated listeners with his soulful voice…(and) has had a meteoric rise since his single “Bruises” went viral earlier this year,” -Billboard

“Lewis Capaldi is generating some huge buzz with ‘Fade.’ Produced by Malay (Frank Ocean’s long-time collaborator), the emotional ballad showcases the 20-year-old Scot’s powerful pipes and knack for insightful lyrics. It goes without saying that he’s One To Watch.” -Idolator

“The latest in Lewis Capaldi’s growing list of accolades is (‘Rush’) his collaboration with Jessie Reyez,

an unlikely pairing that capitalizes on both artists’ uncanny ability to convey the most raw, real emotion in their lyrics and passionate vocals. -Ones To Watch

British singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi (is) emerging in the scene quickly… Once you listen to his music, it will all make sense…beautiful ballad (‘Lost On You’) will break your heart. -Baeble
