I’m excited to be at work on a new CD with Dean Watson @ Gallery Studio to be released in Spring 2017. I’m adding some new electric instruments to my favourite acoustics for an urban rootsy feel. I’ll be previewing the new songs at my shows – see events page for more details!

Performing @ Ottawa CityFolk / Marvest 2015!

CD Launch – Bluesfest School of Music & Art

2014 was a fun & productive year – check out my Video page for highlights of my solo performance at Ottawa Folk Fest, and a Pete Seeger tribute with Fred Penner and U.S. bands The Carper Family, Elephant Revival and Parsonsfield! Being featured in the first Bluesfest Bluesprint Series Showcase was an honour, & I launched my new CD at the Bluesfest School of Music & Art with friends Mike Giamberardino on drums, and Novalatté! Thanks to everyone who came out to my shows and bought my CD’s – it was fun to meet you & play at the various venues. Wishing everyone all the best for 2015! – Spencer
