Lewis Capaldi nominated for Global Artist Award at Scottish Music Awards


Scottish star Lewis Capaldi has been nominated for a Global Artist trophy ahead of a national Scottish awards ceremony.

The Someone You Loved singer is one of the latest musicians to join the roster of talent vying for awards at the Specsavers Scottish Music Awards, alongside Peat & Diesel, Ewan McVicar, Tamzene and Gun.

Capaldi had been listed for the Raymond Weil award for Global Artist of the Year from the event, which he says is the fourth nomination he has had this year.

The five new acts join previously announced nominees and performers Altered Images, The View and Dylan John Thomas.

Capaldi said: “Delighted to be back home for this year’s Scottish Music Awards.

“I remember winning my very first trophy there in 2017, it was such a big moment for me in everything that’s happened since.

“It means so much to be nominated for the fourth time this year and it’s always amazing to again support Nordoff Robbins and all the work they do.”

Taking place on Saturday November 5th for a second year at the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow, the sold-out annual event raises funds for the Nordoff Robbins music therapy charity.

The charity strives to break down barriers using music, creating a space for people to express themselves and connect with others.

Lewis Capaldi’s nomination for the awards comes after his comeback track Forget Me reached number one.

After winning the SSE Best UK Artist Award in 2020, Capaldi’s return to the Specsavers Scottish Music Awards in November shows his continued success.

Nominated for the first time at the Scottish Music Awards, Ewan McVicar has been nominated for the Sub Club/Ballantynes ​​Electronic Music Award.

The DJ shot to fame after his hit Tell Me Something Good was hailed as the sound of the summer 2021 for global dance music fans.

Glasgow rock band Gun have been nominated for the Hard Rock Cafe Rock Legend Award in recognition of their more than 40 year career in the industry which has seen them create seven famous albums.

Tamzene, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Cromarty in the Scottish Highlands, is nominated for the Vega Rising Star Award.

First spotted on the streets of Inverness, the ‘Last Song’ singer, who is inspired by soul music and good stories, has now graced some of the biggest and best stages in the country, from the TRNSMT Festival at King Tuts.

Peat & Diesel, the Stornoway trio who gained a reputation for their spirited performances and sold out their first gig at the Barrowland Ballroom in less than a day, have been honored with the Royal Highland Center Sound of Scotland Award.
