Sam Ryder

Former Colchester Institute music technology student Sam Ryder represented the United Kingdom in the 2022 Eurovision song contest, finishing second against Ukraine.

Sam’s song ‘Space Man’ has since featured in the UK top 40 charts and on the Spotify Top 50 UK.

Not only this, Sam now has his own tour taking place later this year across Europe, and is also performing at the Queens Platinum Jubilee celebrations at the palace alongside Sir Elton John, Craig David and George Ezra.

Huge congratulations Sam – you have made your former College very proud!

Space, Man!
