UK crooner Calum Scott, the man behind one of the world’s most recognisable and loved renditions of Robyn’s ‘Dancing On My Own’, will play his first ever Australian and New Zealand shows this October.
Scott’s heartwarming appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 shot him to instant global stardom, and when he officially released his audition song ‘Dancing On My Own’ as the lead single from his debut album Only Human, it took the world by storm. The track quickly accumulated more than 6.5 million worldwide sales, reached 5x Platinum in Australia and saw the former recruitment officer from Hull nominated for the Brit Award for British Single Of The Year. Upon its release, his album resonated strongly with Australian audiences, peaking at #5 on the ARIA chart.
‘Scott’s stunningly pure voice is affecting enough in itself, but his lyrics on every one of the [album’s] tracks are vulnerable and raw.’ - Billboard
Only Human is the result of a long, cathartic songwriting journey. Filled with deeply personal material, Scott’s ability to transform pain into beauty is undeniable, whether he is addressing coming out to his father, unrequited longing, adolescent isolation, or the gratitude he feels toward his sister Jade, who pushed him to sing on stage for the first time and auditioned alongside him on Britain’s Got Talent.
Scott’s elegantly sculpted pop centres on his soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics, exemplified in gently uplifting single ‘You Are The Reason’ (currently certified 2x Platinum in Australia), aching piano ballad ‘Hotel Room’ and hit single ‘Rhythm Inside’. The singer’s ability to consistently build on his gift for poignant, emotionally charged performances is a sure sign of the lasting impact the Englishman will continue to have on all who hear his voice. To experience it in the flesh is unmissable.
‘With Only Human, (Calum Scott) makes an impressive splash… a compelling debut album.’ - Huffington Post
Adding to an already unmissable tour, Scott will be joined on stage by Ellie Drennan.
In 2015, Ellie Drennan became the youngest ever winner of The Voice Australia at just 16, scoring herself a recording contract with Universal Music Australia. With coaching from Jessie J, she caught the attention of Aussie viewers instantly, and has since gone on to release stunning singles ‘Ghost’ and ‘Hard Love’ , as well as debut album Close Your Eyes, to much success.
