Lewis Capaldi Essentials
Lewis Capaldi addresses the private pain that people prefer to keep hidden. A young Scottish bluesman venting his romantic agony with gospel fervor, he belts out confessional songs of love gone bad in an end-of-tether howl that suggests a long dark night of the soul. Having grown his fanbase via self-released online recordings in the late ‘10s, his 2017 debut single “Bruises” made him a streaming sensation before he even had a record deal. It's testament to the intensity of his voice that he made such a big splash in an era of such great soul singers as Rag'n'Bone Man.
