Acclaimed indie rock singer-songwriter with a classic rock influence

Playing the guitar when he was just 10-years-old, writing songs at 14 – going on to win the Critics’ Choice Award at the BRITs without even releasing an album – Sam Fender was destined for greatness before anyone even knew his name.

Born in North Shields in 1996, Fender was spotted as a teenager by Ben Howard’s manager and snapped up fast, going on to support the likes of Ben Howard and Willy Mason on the road.

His 2017 debut single Play God demonstrated a gifted songwriter with more than introspection and young love on his mind and a grounding in the greats, from Bruce Springsteen to Jeff Buckley. Two more well-received singles and Fender was riding a wave of hype all the way to a coveted spot on the BBC’s Sound Of 2018 list (alongside Billie Eilish and Lewis Capaldi) and a deal with Polydor.

Sam Fender’s debut EP Dead Boys landed in 2018, gaining gushing reviews for its title track, which addressed suicide in young men.

The following year, Fender finally released his debut album in the shape of Hypersonic Missile. Again, reviews were ecstatic and Fender was invited to open for Neil Young and Bob Dylan at Hyde Park as well as a personal invitation from Elton John to play his AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Party. Elton John joined Fender onstage at the party for a rendition of Fender’s song Will We Talk?

Sam Fender’s second album, Seventeen Going Under, followed in 2021. In October 2021, he announced a European tour with dates in Ireland for March and June 2022, including a show with The Killers at Malahide Castle.
