Perth Festival of the Arts presents
When Lewis Capaldi’s debut single Bruises
exploded at the start of 2017 it seemed from an outside perspective to have all the hallmarks of an overnight sensation. How could this 20-year-old with a soul-wrenching voice seemingly emerge from nowhere with a song of such emotional depth? Within weeks it had racked up an astonishing 15 million Spotify plays and topped streaming charts around the world. Picking up the guitar at nine, writing songs at eleven and gigging from 12 onwards, Capaldi has devoted every spare moment to writing and performing.
He is that rare thing: a writer who can take his own experiences and craft them into deeply effecting, heartbruised truths that resonate with anyone who hears them.
