Since debut track ‘Bruises’ exploded online last year, Capaldi has been able to boast incredibly rare markers in his still fledgling career. The young Scot, whose incredible humour sets him apart from fellow heartbreak songwriters, has already secured his first UK top 3 single, achieved successive Radio 1 A-List tracks, sold over 90,000 headline show tickets, enlisted the music video acting services of ex-Dr Who star Peter Capaldi, amassed over 330 million plays across streaming services & has sold out no less than three back-to-back headline tours, with demand outstripping supply at every turn. This all underlined with critical praise, being shortlisted for the 2019 Brits Critics’ Choice award, performing on Top Of The Pops, and making both the BBC’s Sound Of 2018 longlist and BBC Radio 1’s Brit List.
His personal achievements haven’t gone unnoticed by his musician peers either, with Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Rag’n’ Bone Man, Bastille & Niall Horan offering Capaldi an audience of 500,000+ people. The young 22 year old who only 18 months previous had been plugging-in night-after-night into the local pub gig circuit of Glasgow, will now head out on the road in November to headline some of the countries most notable venues, including London’s O2 Academy Brixton. An extraordinary feat for an artist who continues to smash through boundaries at an alarming rate.
