It has been an incredible 12 months for North Shields’ latest, greatest son – rightly hailed as one of the most cherished and original songwriters of his generation.
Last year saw the release of Sam’s second UK Number One Album, the bruisingly open, honest and intensely personal Seventeen Going Under. Though in relative terms Seventeen (Going Under) is coming under two years after Hypersonic Missiles, Fender’s songwriting is lightyears ahead here. Musically, the songs are far more nuanced, more detailed and more textured than before. Like only a truly great songwriter can, Fender turns his own experience into art that speaks to, and resonates with, all of us. It’s why his songs mean so much to people.
Sam, last month, received the 2022 Brit Award for Best British Alternative/Rock Act, to add to his 2019 Critics’ Choice Award and he is now ready to bring his high-octane live show to massive stages around the UK.
