Sam Scherdel is the latest cultural export from Doncaster borough.
The singer-songwriter has been forging his sound since the age of 11, after teaching himself guitar and piano as a young boy.
And now he is on tour promoting his EP Cruel Beautiful World – including a date in Sheffield.
Sam, from Mexborough, says: “It’s a collection of songs that allude to the fact that life can be cruel, but generally you will be okay.”
Scherdel plays the 500-capacity O2 Academy 2, on Arundel Gate in Sheffield city centre, tomorrow, in support of Sheffield pop-rock quartet Trinity Road.
Sam is set to perform material from Cruel Beautiful World, as well as new songs for a forthcoming release.
Sam says: “I can’t wait for this one.
“It would mean a lot to me to see some support.
“I’m not going to be playing in Sheffield for a while after this, as I set my sights further afield.
“I’m going to make this Good Friday a good one.”
Also on the bill tomorrow night are Sheffield alternative electro quartet Kath Auto, Leeds-based band The Sonik Seeds, Gods & Monsters and Sheffield-based Isembard’s Wheel.
Doors to tomorrow night’s show open at 6.30pm.
