Austin City Limits Music Festival: featuring Sam Fender

An artist to keep on your radar this fall at ACL Fest is none other than Sam Fender. With catchy rhythms that lead to some occasional head bobbing and candid lyrics that reflect on issues we attempt to neglect, the 25-year-old artist definitely has a way of sticking to you. 

The English singer-songwriter released his first EP just last year titled Dead Boys. Critics have quite frequently related his work to Bruce Springsteen with a combination of The Killers, particularly his 2019 single “Hypersonic Missiles." Listen to the tune below.

Fender brought his talents to the stage this past March at Austin City Limits Radio’s Live Morning Broadcast During SXSW. Watch his performance of “Dead Boys."
