"Lewis is a knock-out guitarist, but it’s his powerful voice, emotion-soaked lyricism and knack for making people laugh that really has his fans hooked' - GQ
The UK hasn’t witnessed a new artist rocket into the public consciousness so quickly since Adele. And the best part is, he’s got the music to back it up”- The Independent

biggest new stars" - Evening Standard
17 MAY 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - After months of breaking records and capturing the nation, Lewis Capaldi has today released his eagerly-awaited debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent on Virgin EMI/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The brand-new album features the latest single, “Hold Me While You Wait” as well as the UK #1 platinum-selling single, and biggest UK single of the year so far, “Someone You Loved”, which broke through to the Top 50 on the Canada Spotify Chart this week.

Recorded over an 18-month period across London, New York & L.A., Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent is an ironically titled, but charismatically defining album that’s lyrically candid and an accurate snapshot into the ups and downs of growing up. Consisting of recordings that capture the charm & feeling of how they were originally written, including hit singles “Grace”, “Bruises” & “Someone You Loved”, Lewis’ stunningly identifiable voice, coupled with its turbulent themes of love, loss and heartache, make it a debut record that is unequivocally relatable.
Lewis has also achieved successive Radio 1 A-List tracks, sold over 150,000 headline show tickets, enlisted the music video acting services of ex-Dr Who star Peter Capaldi, amassed over 600 million plays across streaming services & has sold out no less than five 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, TV performances on The Jonathan Ross Show & Top Of The Pops, and making both the BBC’s Sound Of 2018 longlist and BBC Radio 1’s Brit List.
The young 22 year old who only 18 months ago had been plugging-in night-after-night into the local pub gig circuit of Glasgow, will first head out on the road in November to headline some of the country’s most notable venues, then embark on a truly remarkable sold out UK arena tour in 2020. Most recently, Lewis announced a string of additional dates including two stops in Canada this October. Shortly after the shows were announced, they were upgraded to larger venues due to popular demand. See below for more details.
Lewis has taken pairing sad songs with an incredible wit, and a rampant social media following to match, and made it his very own. The results are hilariously beautiful.

October 6 – Toronto, ON (REBEL)
October 7 – Montreal, QC (L’Olympia)
