A COLLABORATION with Scotland's very own Lewis Capaldi would definitely interest DJ and producer Jonas Blue - but he might have to get in line. 

The hitmaker has worked with some of the biggest names in music including Nina Nesbitt, Rita Ora, and Joe Jonas, and admitted that there is an appeal to working with Lewis. 

The pair are also connected through songwriter Sam Roman who worked on both Jonas' single Younger with HRVY and Lewis' breakthrough hit Someone You Loved. So could it happen?

"I think every single DJ is trying to collaborate with Lewis Capaldi at the moment," explained Jonas.  He added: "He is definitely the one I think everybody would love to collaborate with."

The 30-year-old's CV could be equally appealing to Lewis. He launched onto the music scene in 2015 with a house-infused cover of Tracy Chapman's 1988 hit single Fast Car.

After demanding the attention of the industry, Londoner Jonas then claimed the charts with follow-up Perfect Strangers featuring JP Cooper.

And since then he has managed to blend his songwriting, producing and DJ skills to deliver hit after hit. 

He said: "My songs are just happy. 

"It is great to just create happy songs. Songs that can take people back to summer and make them feel good.

"At the same time, I try to create songs that are timeless.

"The hardest thing to do, however, is to create happy songs and for them not to sound cheesy."

He added: "With Fast Car, it was never meant to be my first single. It was the song that got me out there and to where I am at.

"I have always been a songwriter so that is what enabled me to carry on."

Having big dance tunes under his belt means Jonas is in demand.  His hectic touring schedule has seen him perform across the globe playing at major festivals including Tomorrowland and Lollapalooza.

Next year, he will tour the UK with a new show which will come to Glasgow's SWG3 on Monday, March 2.

"The hardest thing is travelling, there is no two aways about," explained Jonas.

He continued: "But when you get up on that stage and the adrenaline hits you, it kind of just disappears.

"(My show) will bring the songs that people know me for into a new light.

"They are slightly rearranged and I have some vocalists coming out, it will be a lot of fun."

While on the road, though, you won't find Jonas out for a night in the town.

He said: "I just go back to the town, stick on a bit of Only Fools and Horses and sleep.

"It is really easy to get caught up in the world of going to after-parties and living that life.

"It is really not about that for me I really pick those moments wisely.

"If it is about partying, I usually just save it for the summer with my friends."

Going forward Jonas wants to be consistent with his music, a move which has proven to be successful for his idol Scottish DJ Calvin Harris.

"He has been consistent all throughout the years," Jonas said.

He continued: "If you look at where he started with Acceptable in the 80s to where he is at now with One Kiss and Promises. 

"Just what he has been able to do over a span of x amount of years is amazing.

"For me, he is someone I look up to in terms of inspiration.

"He is definitely someone I look up to in terms of longevity in the music business and being creative."

He added: "I am at a place now where I am really happy.

"As soon as I release a song, millions of people around the world hear it - that was always a dream for me.

"Now I have got that, it is just about treasuring it and being consistent with music and not letting go."
