Sam Fender. Hypersonic Missiles. Polydor Records

From humble beginnings in Tynemouth, to festivals & stadiums across the UK and Europe, Sam Fender has claimed his spot as one of today's most exciting artists.

He was named "the Sound of 2018",  and the winner of the Critics’ Choice Brit AWARD for 2019. He talks about how his music is fueled by an old-school belief that great guitar music still has the power to change lives and influence people.

His debut album 'Hypersonic Missiles' dropped in September 2019, and Sam spoke to Forces Radio BFBS' Amy Casey about his incredible rise from the workingmen's pub to packing out venues and touring with the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Liam Gallagher.
