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?
