Liam Fender toasts the North East with new single ‘Time Comes Around’


London, UK – May 12th, 2023 – Musician and Newcastle native Liam Fender releases brand new single ‘Time Comes Around’ alongside his most ambitious music video yet. Following ballet dancers Hayley Walker and Owen Kennedy as they dance through the centre of his hometown in North Shields, Newcastle the video features a host of North East cameos from a mixture of local artists and personalities.

Incorporating beautiful guitar-led melodies, softly lilting drumbeats, strings, and poignantly genuine yet feel-good lyrics, Liam notes that ‘Time Comes Around’ is ‘in essence a song about things coming good after a period of prolonged sadness.’

His latest release from his highly anticipated debut EP, lifelong musician Liam Fender has affirmed himself as someone who has music simply coursing through his veins. Having grown up among the people, voices and stories of different musicians, creatives and free spirits of the North East, Liam has an intuitive ability to combine highly articulate and genuine lyrics that are deeply rooted in his own life experiences with stunningly emotive instrumentals – making him a songwriting force to be reckoned with.

The accompanying music video for ‘Time Comes Around’, directed by Sam Gannie, is in keeping with Liam’s authentic songwriting philosophy and is his most ambitious yet. Filmed in his local high street, with many characters in attendance, the video is a very natural and authentic snapshot of life in the town where Liam grew up. Alongside a host of ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ moments, the music video stars ballet dancers Owen Kennedy and Hayley Walker as they swoop through the town centre. Owen choreographed the video’s moving routine and has previously worked with seminal choreographers such as Christopher Bruce, Thick and Tight, and James Wilton, and Hayley has toured the UK with works by Sharon Watson and Joss Arnot as well as having worked with artists including Nina Nesbitt and brands such as Reebok.

In addition to this, the video also features cameos from a great host of famous artists, musicians and social media influences local to the North East – including comedian and actor Fin Healy, post-punk-pop legend Bugman, social media stars Ginger Cal and Angry Bob, one of the UK’s most loved contemporary impressionist artists Alexander Miller, and popular magician and escapist Chris Cross.

‘All in all, it was a great day spent with great people. For me, it very much captured the spirit of what the song is about’, Liam notes.

Describing his music as post-industrial romance and mining from a rich seam of artists like Richard Hawley, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and John Martyn alongside the heritage of Newcastle, Liam Fender’s songs have a story to tell. They’re down to earth, genuine, and interesting, much like the man behind the music.

Liam Fender has a hugely exciting year ahead, with a string of live shows in the UK including:

26th May 2023 – In Between Days, Newcastle upon Tyne

1st July 2023 – Coastella Festival, North Shields

5th August 2023 – Bingley Weekender Festival

20th August 2023 – Hardwick Festival

… and more to be announced!
