Back in 2021 Fender comparing him and Springsteen said that “ I can exactly bat off those comparisons, can I? At the same time, I don’t feel worthy of that tag”

Bruce Springsteen’s latest release is a brand new album, Only The Strong Survive, which is a collection of “15 soul music greats”. In the announcement of the album, he stated that he wants to make an album where he can just sing and praised the songbook of the sixties and seventies of Great America.
He also added he took inspiration from fabulous music writers and from Levis Stubbs, David Ruffin, Diana Ross, Scott Walker, Jimmy Ruffin, and many more.
Fender recently revealed that Springsteen is one of his biggest influences in the journey of music. Springsteen is one of the influential inventors of the heartland rock style of music. He is an extraordinary singer who achieved many awards including 20 Grammys, a special Tony award, an Oscar, and two Golden Globes.
He was spotted on Rolling Stone’s Greatest Artist of All Time List. Fender stated that Springsteen is the one who comes to mind when we talk about the influencers in his musical career. Fender covered Springsteen’s iconic single “I’m on fire” for an exclusive session of Apple Music in January 2022.
Fender began his career by supporting many major artists including Willy Mason. He released his first single in 2017, “Play God”, and put out “Start Again” and “Friday Flighting.” He gained attention and got spotted for his work when he wrote and released “Dead Boys” which was featured in Fifa 19’s game soundtrack.
