Sam Ryder is a singer/songwriter from London who has been in music with various projects since 2009. He formed rock band The Morning After who released two albums on Rising Records UK and JVC Victor in Japan. Their albums “You Can’t Hurt Steel” and “Legacy” have since shifted thousands of copies.
In 2010 Sam was then recruited to tour and write with 80’s style glam metal band Blessed By A Broken Heart (Tooth & Nail/EMI) and contributed to their Billboard charting album “Feel The Power”
After Blessed called it quits, Texas punk/hardcore band Close Your Eyes (Victory Records) asked Sam to join as their front-man and writer. In 2013 they released “Line In The Sand” which resulted in multiple song placements on MTV, NHL 2015 and MGM feature film “Max”.
Sam self-released his debut solo EP in March of this year and is putting the final touches of his full length album that he tracked in Nashville, TN with producer Bryan Wilson (Frightened Rabbit, John Newman).
