’LOVE WILL CONQUER’
Newcastle based musician Liam Fender releases his debut single: ‘Love Will Conquer’ and we will be playing the track from tomorrow - kicking off with Steve Ryan's Breakfast Show at around 08:30am!
‘Love Will Conquer’s’ unconventional structure delivers an almost hymn-like quality. Liam notes ‘Love Will Conquer’s universal message of togetherness, belief in better times, and the importance of connection has only grown more poignant amid the turbulence of recent years.”
A lifelong musician finally stepping out with his debut official release, Liam is a musical underdog and living proof that music truly can be a calling he says “I haven’t chosen to do this, it's just in my DNA.”
If you’ve joined the dots between Liam’s surname and his place of birth you may think he’s onto something with his point about DNA. Either way his earthy, honest and optimistic songs showcase an artist more than capable of standing on his own two feet, with extraordinary new single Love Will Conquer just a small taste of what’s to come.
Mining from a rich seam of artists like Richard Hawley, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and John Martyn alongside the heritage of Newcastle history that’s scattered behind him; Liam Fender’s music is genuine, intuitive, articulate and interesting, much like the man behind the music. Liam describes his music as post-industrial romance. “My music’s deeply rooted in where I’m from: it comes from a real place,” he adds. “There’s a distinct sense of a bygone era, but in all that you find real people, real voices and real stories.”
This is the start of an exciting new chapter for Liam as he plans his first EVER live performance in hometown Newcastle on the 8th December 2022.
Watch out for more tracks to come from Liam in 2023!
