Lewis Capaldi is a Scottish singer-songwriter known for his 2018 smash single "Someone You Loved." In March 2019, that song topped the UK Singles chart, where it remained for seven weeks. In the United States, the song reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in October 2019.
Capaldi also made history by becoming the first-ever artist in global history to both announce and sell out an arena tour before the release of a debut album. Quickly following the success of "Someone You Loved," Capaldi released his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, on May 17, 2019.
Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent topped the UK albums chart for six weeks. Capaldi learned to play drums and guitar when he was two and began his musical career singing in pubs aged 9. By age 17 he had committed to a career in music.
He was discovered by his manager Ryan Walter through an iPhone recording Capaldi recorded in his bedroom and had uploaded to his SoundCloud account. Prior to achieving mainstream success, Capaldi was already touring with big names including Sam Smith, Niall Horan, Rag'n'Bone Man, and Kodaline.
Capaldi is of Scottish and Italian ancestry. Through his father's side of the family, Capaldi's second cousin once removed is the "Doctor Who" actor Peter Capaldi, who appeared in his music video for "Someone You Loved" and was the lead singer and guitarist in a punk rock band called the Dreamboys.
