蘇格蘭吟遊詩人再度來港演出！ 2020年Clockenflap Presents系列演唱會由蘇格蘭創作歌手Lewis Capaldi的香港專場演出展開序幕。Lewis Capaldi於2017年的Clockenflap音樂及藝術節首次登場，深受觀眾喜愛，繼當時令人難忘的音樂節演出之後，2020年1月12日，他將隆重回歸香港，於麥花臣場館舉行他的個人演唱會 Lewis Capaldi 在格拉斯哥的一個小鎮成長，自小就展現創作才華的他，11歲就開始寫歌。他從哥哥的唱片收藏認識到 Nirvana 及 Bob Dylan 等音樂人，並且深受啟發。不久，他就偷偷溜進住處附近的酒吧，開始現場演唱這些歌曲，磨練自己的技藝，提高自己的作曲技巧。 2017年，他發布了突破性的單曲〈 Bruises 〉，這首歌在Spotify上迅速獲得了近2800萬的播放量，也使他成為該平台上最快達到2500萬次播放的未簽約藝人。同年，Capaldi在香港舉辦的Clockenflap音樂及藝術節上首次亮相，也是當年媒體樂迷密切關注的超新星。時至今日，這位22歲的民謠創作歌手再上一層樓，在國際音樂舞台取得極大成功，是全球崛起得最快的音樂人之一。 今年，他的大熱單曲〈 Someone You Loved 〉於英國排行榜上連續七周高居榜首，而首張專輯〈 Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent 〉更超越國際巨星 Ariana Grande 及人氣爆燈的 Billie Eilish ，成為2019年銷量最快的大碟。他在溫布萊球場的演唱會，門票僅用了19秒就急速售罄，而他整個巡迴演出的門票於10分鐘內通通完售，成績斐然。 Lewis Capaldi 擁有毋庸置疑的歌唱和創作天賦，這也是他的音樂能夠跨域收到廣泛喜愛的原因。那些簡約的歌曲和低調的旋律既原始又有生命力，幾乎不用任何修飾或伴奏就能創作出讓聽眾入迷，難以忘懷的聲音。Capaldi首張專輯與多位星級監製及唱作人合作，包括 Malay (Frank Ocean及Lorde) 、 Jamie Hartman (Calvin Harris及James Bay) 及 TMS (Emeli Sandé 及 Carly Rae Jepsen) ，他們放棄了過多的後期製作，而選擇讓 Capaldi 具豐富層次的聲音作為中心，發揮其渾然天成的魅力。 雖然他大部分歌曲的主題都非常沈重，但不代表現場表演時只有沈靜悲哀的氛圍。 Capaldi 很懂得於現場適當的時刻注入一些愉快輕鬆的橋段，使演出更加多元化。憑藉他專屬的幽默感，甚至有幾個在網上爆紅的視頻不停被流傳。 樂迷把握機會，親身體驗這位大熱唱作歌手的全陣容香港首次專場演出。這絕對是一個值回票價的難忘的現場。 8月28日上午10點開始售票，先到先得，售完即止！ The 2020 Clockenflap Presents series of shows kicks off with Scottish singer songwriter Lewis Capaldi, who following his festival play with us in 2017 will return to headline Macpherson Stadium on the 12th January. Growing up in Bathgate—a small town near Glasgow—Capaldi made his earliest attempts at writing songs at the age of 11, mining inspiration from his brother’s Nirvana records and classic singer/songwriters like Bob Dylan. He shortly began performing those songs live by sneaking into nearby pubs, honing his craft and sharpening his songwriting skills. In 2017, he self-released his breakthrough track “Bruises,” which quickly garnered nearly 28 million plays on Spotify, making him the fastest unsigned artist ever to reach 25 million plays on the platform. That same year, Capaldi made one of his Hong Kong debut at the Clockenflap Festival as very much a hotly-tipped ‘one to watch’. Fast forward to 2020, and the 22-year-old troubadour has been on a fast track to global success as a bonafide musical phenomenon. This year, hit single ‘Someone You Loved’ spent seven weeks at No.1 in the UK charts, and his debut album ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’ has been the fastest selling debut LP of 2019, surpassing both Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish’s high profile releases. His Wembley arena show sold out in just 19 seconds, with his entire Arena tour sold out in 10 minutes. At the heart of his broad appeal is unshakeable vocal talent and a songwriting gift for capturing love’s complexity in the most simply arranged songs and understated melodies. For Lewis Capaldi has the kind of voice that needs little accompaniment to create an unforgettable impact that is both raw and mesmerizing. On his debut LP, Capaldi collaborated with producers/songwriters like Malay (Frank Ocean, Lorde), Jamie Hartman (Calvin Harris, James Bay), and TMS (Emeli Sandé, Carly Rae Jepsen), forgoing any elaborate production in favor of a starkly adorned sound that often draws its rich textures from Capaldi’s soulful voice. Live, Capaldi makes a point of instilling a sense of fun into his live performances, making them an undeniably joyful experience, despite the heavy-hearted nature of so many of his songs. His keen sense of humour standing out in much of his associated work, including several viral online videos. Local fans in Hong Kong can now catch him play his first headline show in the city, backed by his full band in what will be an unforgettable evening of live entertainment. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Aug 28th, first come first served!
