30 years of Sam Fender: A look back at his career in photos

North Shields born Sam Fender recently celebrated his 30th birthday.

North Shields musician Sam Fender recently celebrated an important birthday, as he turned 30 on Thursday, April 25.

The singer-songwriter has already had a very successful career, with two number one albums; Hypersonic Missiles and Seventeen Going Under, as well as plenty of hits including; Getting Started, Play God and Alright.

Fender has gained ‘hometown hero’ status very quickly, and last year he performed a sell-out stadium gig at St James’ Park, with other North East celebrities such as Ant and Dec and Vick Hope in attendance. 

As he begins a brand-new decade of his life and career, we look forward to what Fender will do next, and take a look back on his career in photos so far.
