Lewis Capaldi gets support from Ex-AMS Student Greg Pearson on stage in Dubai!

An ex-student performed with Lewis Capaldi last week...

It's been a very proud week for AMS Scotland. Last week, Ex-AMS Student apprentice Greg Pearson - a singer-songwriter hailing from Edinburgh, supported the one-and-only Lewis Capaldi (who also happens to be a ex-short-course AMS Edinburgh alumni...) on stage in Dubai, in front of  a crowd of 3700.

Greg released his new single in serious style earlier this month, supporting another Scottish talent on stage.Greg spoke to the midlothian Advertiser an about how delighted he was opening for one of the biggest names in music right now. “I was asked by the Al Majaz Amphitheatre if I would like the opportunity to showcase my music. Being a Scottish singer-songwriter living in The UAE, and a fan of Lewis Capaldi, I was delighted to say yes."

He was also full of praise for Capaldi: “He was so genuine and down to earth. Him and his whole team were an absolute joy to be around.”

In 2016 we covered the news that Greg's track These Walls was picked as Single of The Week on the BBC Scotland Janice Forsyth show. He moved to Dubai later that year to pursue his career in music, and let's just say, it seems to be going pretty well for him. Best of luck Greg, from all of us here at AMS.

We're officially very chuffed to have these two talented Scots among our alumni. ????

Lewis Capaldi AMS Alumni gets number one hit

Lewis Capaldi

Lewis Capaldi- Edinburgh Academy of Music & Sound alumnus, is currently enjoying his 6th week as the UK's Number One Single! His song 'Someone You Loved' has been on the charts for the past 14 weeks, with 10 weeks of that in the top 10, and 6 at Number One!

Lewis has been on a European tour supporting Bastille, and is also due to open for the Killers in Belfast this June, so it is coming as no surprise that he is selling out his first world tour. Lewis is a charming, funny and exceptionally talented addition to the Academy of Music & Sound hall of fame, and we are so proud of what he is achieving.

Keep a look out for his debut album 'Divinely Unispired to a Hellish Extent' that comes out on the 17th of May 2019.
