Friday, 07 December 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Sam Fender has won the Brits Critics’ Choice award.

The indie songwriter saw off competition from Mahalia and Lewis Capaldi to take home the industry prize, which has previously been claimed by artists like Adele and Florence and the Machine. Fender said:

“I am truly humbled to win the Brits Critics’ Choice award.  Being nominated was crazy enough, never mind winning it. I’m so grateful to everyone back home for believing, and to my band and team for all their hard work. We've played literally hundreds of shows this year, and we're going to go even harder in 2019.

“Most importantly, a big shout to my fans. I've met a lot of you over the last few years and it’s truly an honour to get up and play night after night to such a wonderful bunch of people. To everyone who’s taken a punt on me so far, thank you. Here's to next year!”

Fender recently released his 'Dead Boys' EP and has several shows in the diary.

Mon December 10 2018 - DUBLIN Sound House
