Spencer’s new album ‘Cold November’ had an incredible team in the creation including the legendary Eddie Krammer who mixed one of the songs on the album. His new original ‘Move on Down the Track’ was a finalist in the Blues Category for the 2017 International Songwriting Competition. It is consistently hitting the top of the Blues Charts and receiving rave reviews around the World. Spencer was honoured and extremely thankful to receive a funding grant from FACTOR Canada which has allowed him to bring his album to incredible heights!

His drive and work ethic goes beyond that of the typical teenager. Countless hours are spent song writing and travelling each week performing on the blues scene earning praise everywhere he performs. In 2018 he toured his new album with Miles Evans on keys, Matt Burns on drums and Justine Fischer on bass, to many prestigious festivals including Thunderbay Blues Festival, Paisley Blues festival, Tremblant International Blues Festival, Donnacona Blues Festival, Trois-Rivieres en Blues, Southside Shuffle, Sarnia Jazz and Blues in the Village, and many more.

 

In 2016 Spencer won the Toronto Blues Society New Talent Search earning a spot to compete at the 2017 International Blues Challenge. In 2017 he won ‘Blues Artist of the Year’ at the Niagara Music Awards and took home the 2016 Maple Blues Award for 'New Artist of the Year' and he has just begun his journey !

 

"He mentions many of his influences such as B.B. King, Jonny Lang, Joe Bonamassa, Colin James, Jimi Hendrix …. Spencer, nevertheless, has his own sound which, in my humble opinion, is going to carry him to great heights”  - Blues and Roots Radio Worldwide

Spencer invites you to join him on a journey that he is not quite certain where it is taking him, but he is loving every step along the way!
