Luke La Volpe

New rising Scottish singing star Luke La Volpe has announced February tour dates that bring him to the Capital.

A sold-out gig at King Tut’s Summer Nights earlier this year and high-profile support slots with Tom Grennan, Lewis Capaldi and The Snuts have propelled the 23 year old star-in the-making through the second half of 2019. He’s determined to make the next 12 months count.

La Volpe (The Fox in Italian) sounds like no-one else. Deep and sonorous, dramatic and timeless, his voice will stop you dead in your tracks and sets him apart from the crowded field of ‘ones to watch’ for 2020. You’ll want to listen to him over and over again.

La Volpe picked up Lewis Capaldi’s King Tut’s Song writing Award for his absent friend at this year’s Scottish Music Awards and the sense is that, just maybe, it was a practice run for recognition of his own talent ahead.

“Lewis’s success has been inspiring,” he says. “We used to sit and play songs together in my bedroom and imagine being able to do it for a living and look where he is now.

“This summer felt like things really started to happen for me, with the big support shows and some cracking headline gigs. I quit my job to be able to do this full time so there’s no going back now. I want to be on those big stages every night.”

La Volpe will set out his stall on Saturday 29 February at The Mash House.
