Songkick Live Introduces: JC Stewart

Published: November 18, 2019

22-year-old Irish singer-songwriter JC Stewart has already found success as a cowriter for Lewis Capaldi, but now he’s paving his own way.

Growing up outside of Derry in Northern Ireland, JC Stewart abandoned his dreams of professional rugby for music at 15 — and we’re so glad he did. JC treated us to an incredible performance of his tracks ‘Have You Had Enough Wine?’ and ‘Bones’ at Songkick Live Milan and we’re thrilled to share this rising star’s set with you.

While he may be best known for his track ‘Hollywood’ on Lewis Capaldi’s debut album, JC Stewart has been climbing the ladder with successful songs of his own. His 2018 single ‘Like I Did’ has 4.6 million streams on Spotify, and his more recent ‘Bones’ isn’t far behind with 4.3 million streams between the original and acoustic versions.

Speaking to Music Week in October, JC says writing songs can be as easy as pulling a line from a conversation — or a text from an ex, which inspired ‘I Think We Both Know.’ For his collaboration with Lewis Capaldi, it was as easy as a few hours in the studio with laughs and beers. The track now has more than 21 million streams on Spotify.

JC Stewart will be hitting the road again in May 2020. For now, you can track him on Songkick to be notified when he announces new shows near you.
