“I love Eurovision. I think it’s such a privilege to be able to do it,” he tells Radio 1 Newsbeat.

Last year’s contest in Rotterdam was won by Italian rock group Måneskin.

Sam’s taking part following two consecutive years where the UK has placed last at Eurovision.

“I don’t want to let the stigma or fear of coming at a certain place in a table stop me from doing something and being a part of something that I enjoy so much,” he says.

Sam Ryder Biography, Wiki

Sam Ryder is an English singer and songwriter who began his career in the hard rock and metal circuits, fronting groups like the Morning After and Blessed by a Broken Heart before starting a solo career as a pop artist.

Wielding his versatile and dynamic vocal range, he parlayed an unexpected bout of viral success into a major-label deal and debuted in early 2021 with powerful pop-driven singles like “Whirlwind” and “More.” They were included on his first EP, The Sun’s Gonna Rise, before the end of the year.

Raised in Essex, Ryder grew up admiring the vocal power and range of English rock titans like Freddie Mercury and Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson. He taught himself to play guitar, but it was his impressive voice that became his ticket into the music industry.

After recording a couple of albums with the symphonic metal band the Morning After, he was recruited by Canadian glam metal outfit Blessed by a Broken Heart to become their frontman.

He was a key part of the band’s 2012 LP Feel the Power, and after parting ways in 2013 he tried his luck in Nashville, writing songs and pitching himself to labels. He even recorded 2016 full-length that never saw the light of day.
