Lewis Capaldi Tours His Debut Album
When you close your eyes and first listen to the soulful lament of Lewis Capaldi's baritone vocals, you may be surprised to find that the man behind the voice is a 20-something Glaswegian whose dedicated social media lampooning has earned him the nickname 'The King Of Memes' (if you don't believe it, check out his hilariously insightful instagram highlights). Catch him as he brings his smash hit songcraft to North America on his first ever international headlining tour.
The juxtaposition between self-deprecating humour and the emotional depth of his songs marks him apart from other pop singer songwriters, so its no surprise that his 2017 breakthrough single 'Bruises' amassed 28 million streams upon release, making him the fastest ever unsigned artist to do so on Spotify. After major label courtship, the mischievous musicmaker released his debut EP Bloom, quickly followed by the 2019 release of his debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, a critically lauded journey which has already drawn comparisons to the rapid ascent of Adele.
