Daz Sampson

Originally from Stockport, Daz Sampson started his career as a mobile DJ. He then went on to join the group Bus Stop in 1998 who had a hit with their remix of “Kung Fu Fighting”. Within the group, Daz released 4 singles and 2 albums which had chart success in 24 countries, until 2002 when they split. Later on he was involved in other groups Rikki & Daz, Fraud Squad, Filo Bedo, Blown Out, Barndance Boys and Uniting Nations.

Daz represented the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 in Athens, Greece. Eventually his song “Teenage Life” finished in 19th place. Daz had actually won over £8,000 through betting on himself to win the selection show “Eurovision: Making Your Mind Up”.

In 2019 Daz Sampson returned to the Eurovision brand when he attempted to represent Belarus with fellow British singer Nona and the song “Kinky Boots”. Sadly the song did not make it past the auditions stage. Daz has also recently been working on an autobiography.
