Scottish Music Award Breakthrough 2020 winner, 25-year-old Bathgate singer Luke La Volpe scored a Scottish Number 1 single with Dead Man’s Blues last year. He’s the latest singer to watch from the musical hotbed of West Lothian, home of contemporaries and friends The Snuts and Lewis Capaldi.
During the enforced hiatus of lockdown Luke released the Terribly Beautiful EP and organised the Sofathon Singalong online festivals in aid of the Music Venue Trust, helping grassroots music venues through the crisis. The charity invited him to become a patron alongside legends including Sir Paul McCartney and Billy Bragg.
He has played Latitude Festival, supported The Lathums on tour in London and Dunfermline and had slots at Liverpool Sound City and Live at Leeds, plus a sold out headline show at Glasgow’s St Luke’s.
