Sam Bowden, lead guitarist in pop-punk band Neck Deep, studied with Access Creative in Lincoln.

Sam Bowden studied Music Technology and was taken on the Neck Deep tour team as a guitar technician. During the tour, the former guitarist had to leave and Sam was asked to stand in. He learned the band’s setlist of 11 songs in one night and the rest is history!

In 2013, they were signed to Hopeless Records. In 2014 they released their debut album album Wishful Thinking which reached number 2 in the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart.

In 2015, they released their second album Life’s Not Out to Get You which reached number 8 in the UK album charts.

They have an impressive list of festivals they have played. Download, Slam Dunk, Reading and Leeds to name a few and in 2019 they will be supporting Don Broco on their UK tour.
