Sam Fender is a distinct 21-year-old musician born and raised in Newcastle, England. This young artist started his passion for music at a very young age and from that moment on he never stopped chasing his dream to become a known artist.
His music is unique for a Millennial, the topics approached in his songs are not about love, sex, and drugs like most artists his age, Sam Fender instead decides to talk about more serious topics such as sexual harassment, government surveillance and fake news.
This young man is a perfect example of a hustler musician, most of his songs were recorded in his garden shed, where he spends hours in the creative process and this is one of the reasons why we chose him as the artist of the week. He started in a very humble and indie way and he has worked his way to the top, Now Sam Fender has tracks edited by Arctic Monkey's alumnus Barny Brnicott. If there is something we can learn from him is, never give up on your dreams.
Now, I know what your first question is going to be. "What is Shaw Academy?"
Shaw Academy is an online educator based in Dublin, Ireland that provides real-time, instructor-led courses that offer development in a variety of specific skills. Their webinars are highly interactive and course completion earns you an accredited diploma, which is perfect for the resume of any new or already established industry professional.
While Shaw Academy offers courses in things like Nutrition, Financial Trading and Investment, Wedding Photography and Personal Beauty that may make you question the relevancy of this post to the music industry, it also offers diplomas in Music, Guitar, Social Media Marketing, Web Design, and many other areas of focus that are essential for any independent artist or musician to know. Responsibilities like building your own website and marketing your music and brand are most likely going to be entirely on you for many years of your music career until you receive external funding or generate enough profit to pay others to do so for you (unless you partner up with us here at 3300+ Climbing, where we provide you with those services entirely for free).
Shaw Academy does offer a free trial to allow potential users to get a taste of their service but it expires after 30 days, leaving you to choose between a $49/month Premium membership or what is typically a $1,250 Lifetime membership - a membership that now only requires a flat-rate payment of $39 when you sign up within the next 7 days!
So, what are you waiting for? I'm about to go download my $39 education! Are you?

For many people, the New Year brings the opportunity to start fresh. We spend the first few weeks of the year listening to people rave about the new diet they're starting or the new outlook on life that a simple change in number has given them. But what we don't hear too much about are those artists continuing to work for their big break into the industry - a process they most likely started years ago. The beginning of a New Year gives them the chance to restart the clock. This year will be the year, they say as the clock strikes midnight. And we here at 3300+ Climbing are ecstatic for these artists. We believe in them. In fact, we're rooting for artists of our own interest.
Here's what our members have to say about our most anticipated artists of 2018!
As for me, the artist I've chosen isn't quite as undiscovered as he had been when I first discovered him. But he is definitely still on the rise! You may have heard his hit single, "I Like Me Better", once or twice on the radio. Maybe three times, who knows? But he's given me second thoughts on my desire to be drunk and in love in New York City, that's for sure.
Who are you most excited to follow in 2018? Leave a comment down below and let us know!
This past Saturday, November 4th, our artist Amanda Lyn made a special guest appearance at acoustic/alternative band Beemo's release party for their new single, "Did For You" - and as usual, she rocked the house! But behind all great performances are great pre-show routines, rituals and traditions that ignite the fire we see on stage. So, we spoke to Amanda and got the inside scoop on the various routines that lead up to her iconic performances!
"My pre-show routine varies depending on what type of performance I’m doing," she explained. "Most of the live performing I’ve done has been theatre and with that type of show, I usually warm up in the car on the way there. This typically involves singing in the car loudly along to boy bands such as One Direction, Backstreet Boys and Big Time Rush." Can't we all relate?
When I do a gig where I’m playing my own music, the atmosphere is usually a lot more laid back, so I don’t really have a typical pre-show ritual. I feel like when you’re a performer, everything you do in your daily life as far as health and self-care is part of your pre-show ritual, though. It’s a lifestyle choice to use your body as your work. Exercising regularly, rehearsing, maintaining your singing voice, keeping your immune system strong, skin care, drinking enough water, eating healthy, maintaining your mental and spiritual health - all of this comes into play and helps you maintain longevity. It’s important to know what works for you and what makes you feel free to give your best performance."
Be sure to follow Amanda Lyn and 3300+ Climbing on social media for more updates on her upcoming shows and appearances! For now, check out our photos from Beemo's single release party on November 4th!
