Sam grew up in Tyneside Newcastle North England and has said of his new single 'Dead Boy's “It’s a song about male suicide, particularly in my hometown,”. His music comes at a time when the charts are filled with sweet pop and love songs, Sam Fender is writing lyrics that speak out about mental health for men. It is refreshing to hear a new artist write about what is real for them in their World.
Sam was in Ireland to appear at Other Voices Ballina, so he nipped into Marconi House to record especially for Lost in Music.
