Who is Calum Scott?
If you’ve yet to hear of the British artist, prepare to become an instant fan. In 2015, Calum Scott auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent, resulting in Simon Cowell giving him wondrous praise.
Word for word, Simon said: “I’ve never ever in all the years I’ve done this show heard a guy with the talent you’ve got.” Well, we completely agree with you Simon, and after finishing in 6th place on the show, Calum is now seeing his dreams come to fruition.
Although Calum didn’t win the competition, nor to many people’s surprise get picked up by Simon Cowell’s label, he went on to independently release a top 10 hit of his (beautiful) rendition of Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own.” His growing buzz from BGT attracted industry professionals in Los Angeles, where he has now signed a deal with Capitol Records! Congrats, Calum. We are big fans.
We’re so stoked to see what’s in store for this rising superstar. Listen to Calum’s version of “Dancing On My Own,” in the video below and look out for more from this rising star.
