Sam Fender

Seems to be quite a buzz building for this guy?

Echoes of Bruce and The Killers perhaps?

Was driving home from work last night listening to Absolute Radio and Bruce singing Dancing in the Dark  was on, at the end all the DJ said was :-

"America`s answer to Sam Fender, check him out".

Saw him on TV this week singing live. A touch of the George Ezras about him.

Not really impressed. Sorry.

I've been tracking Sam Fender for a while.

Hypersonic Missiles is a really strong album with heavy Bruce influences musically (Sax, Glock, Guitar sounds, builds..) and in terms of subject matter albeit the social commentary is a bit more overt.

I saw him live earlier in the year and he was terrific. Got tickets for London in December too. 

Good to see a young band writing and performing meaningful music.

He was on Radio 2 yesterday & said that Bruce was his biggest influence saying how Bruce had come to Newcastle to play in the 80s & donated money to the miners families.

I think he’s great. Clearly heavily influenced by Bruce. Very strong album. He also appears to be really humble/grounded when I’ve seen him interviewed.

Got tix for Birmingham academy date end of jan .... weird as I was sat in cafe and Hypersonic missiles came on.... prompted me to check tix .... found out he’d cancelled his Christmas tour (which I couldn’t get tix for ) and released new dates which promptly sold out an hour after I bought em ! Serendipity !!!!!
