As the world was being put in to lockdown in March – Sam uploaded the first of his now infamous covers. They quickly caught the attention of some famous fans (think Justin Bieber, Sia, Alicia Keys and Elton John) with compilations of his videos appearing on The Ellen Show, BBC’s Newsbeat and more. As the videos kept coming, so did the fans with his socials standing at over 10 million followers to date and hundreds of thousands of comments.
Fast forward 7 months and Sam rounded off his incredible year with TikTok crowning his account as the most popular UK artist account of 2020 beating the likes of Dua Lipa, Lewis Capaldi and Liam Payne. A truly incredible feat, for an incredibly talented artist & he is now releasing original music.
Sam Ryder will be performing at Chalk in Brighton on Friday 19th November 2021.
