IT'S been one whirlwind year for Scottish singer songwriter Lewis Capaldi.

The 23-year-old, who released his debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent in May, has enjoyed enormous success throughout 2019 – most recently bagging his first number one single in the US with Someone You Loved.

He even hit the headlines for falling out with rock royalty Noel Gallagher, surely a sign that he's made it.

Capaldi, who will perform a sold out gig at the 02 Guildhall in Southampton on Thursday, has been nominated for a Grammy for his single Someone You Loved.

He received a nod for the song of the year and will compete with Always Remember Us This Way, from A Star Is Born, Bad Guy by Billie Eilish, Bring My Flowers Now by Brandi Carlile and others.

Fans can expect to hear new single Before You Go, as well as tracks from his debut.

Lewis learned to play drums and guitar aged two, and began his musical career singing in pubs aged 9. He was discovered by his manager through an iPhone recording he recorded in his bedroom and had uploaded to his SoundCloud account.

He has supported Rag'n'Bone Man and Bastille and was long-listed for BBC Music's Sound of 2018

Capaldi was nominated for the Brit Critics' Choice Award for 2019, alongside Mahalia and winner Sam Fender.

His debut became the best selling album in the UK in five years, spending five weeks at number one in its first six weeks of release. 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.
