Acclaimed indie rock singer-songwriter with a classic rock influence
Over the past few months, Sam Fender has solidified himself as one of the most celebrated and successful British artists of his generation, pulling a huge crowd on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury ahead of his own 45,000 sell-out show at London’s Finsbury Park.
It’s been a huge 2022 so far for the North Shields hero, picking up a slew of BRIT, NME and Ivor Novello Awards. This latest announcement suggests 2023 will be Sam’s biggest year yet.
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.
