Born in the port city of Hull in Northern England, Calum Scott is disarmingly direct a quality that informs his self-penned, ripped-from-the-soul songs and thats apparent even when he is interpreting another artists material, as his poignant cover of Robyns Dancing On My Own demonstrates.
Shortly after Scott self-released Dancing On My Own in March 2016, the song went viral in over 34 countries on Spotify, peaking at No. 2 on the Global Viral 50. The single charted at No. 1 in more than six countries, including the U.S., and ranked in the Top 10 in over 20 countries on Spotify. Dancing On My Own has charted in iTunes Top 10 in more than 12 countries and has now spent four weeks in the Top 40 of the U.K.s Official Singles Chart hitting #27 and climbing.
When I recorded 'Dancing On My Own in my bedroom, I never thought for a second that it would reach as far as it has and bring this level of support from literally all over the globe, says Calum Scott. Im so excited about the next chapter because there is so much to come!
