‘He was surprised by his musical talent’: Cruz Beckham teams up with Eurovision star Sam Ryder’s producer Max Wolfgang… after signing with elite music management company
Cruz Beckham has been working with Sam Ryder‘s producer.
The 17-year-old aspiring singer – who is the youngest son of David and Victoria Beckham – was ‘blown away’ by the Space Man singer’s performance at the Eurovision Song Contest earlier this year, so approached pop guru Max Wolfgang about the possibility of working together.
And when Max – who has also written for the likes of Kylie Minogue, Little Mix and Rudimental – heard what the teenager had to offer, he was ‘very excited’ to work with him.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper’s Bizarre column: ‘Cruz was blown away by Sam’s performance at Eurovision and felt Max’s style of writing would work with the vibe he’s going for, and asked if he could arrange a session.
‘Max heard some of the demos Cruz has been working on and was very excited to be involved. He was surprised by his musical talent.’

A source previously said: ‘The fact that such a well-established and successful management company has taken on Cruz proves there is faith that he is the real deal.
‘Everyone has been really impressed with what they have heard so far and he is working hard to develop his songs.
‘Everything is falling into place with his career but he isn’t in a rush to put music out yet.
Multi-talented: Cruz has taught himself the guitar, piano, and drums, and recently signed to music management company Tap Music
‘He is working with Tap to make sure there is a plan in place to give him the best possible launch as a solo singer. His parents’ fame means there are big expectations and he has a lot to prove. But the most important thing is that everyone insists his voice is better than his mum’s.’
In February, Cruz – who made a bid for chart stardom with festive single If Every Day Was Christmas in 2016 when he was just 11 years old – revealed he had been working with producer Poo Bear, who has previously penned a string of tracks for Justin Bieber.
Cruz said: ‘We’ve just been in the studio a few times and made some songs together.’
The youngster has been writing about ‘personal experiences, real experiences’.
As well as singing, Cruz has taught himself the guitar, piano, and drums and is open to learning more in a bid to strengthen his ambitions.
He added: ‘I even learnt how to play the mandolin for a song I wrote.
‘I don’t think you ever stop learning, but I’m taking my time seeing what happens.’
