Using his birth name, Spencer. is the solo-project of Rochester-born teenager Spencer Allen. The self-taught singer, songwriter, and classically trained multi-instrumentalist first shared an instrumental STARCASTER EP on Soundcloud in 2016. His vocal debut VISCERAL LOVE followed in August 2017 with the breakout single ”Open Wide.” Curators such as Pigeons & Planes, Evergreen, and Lyrical Lemonade caught onto his follow up single “To Be You” and Spencer’s rise began.
He was picked out by Smokin Grooves Festival and played alongside Thundercat, The Roots, Erykah Badu, and many of his idols on his first trip to California. By July he connected with Omar Apollo and supported the north east leg of his “W.A.N.T.E.D.” tour, notably playing to an oversold Baby’s All Right crowd in Brooklyn, NY.
Released on September 28th, Spencer’s Want U Back EP earned 1,000,000 streams in just 3 weeks. It was picked up by FADER, PAPER Mag, Beats 1 (Matt Wilkinson), BBC Radio 1Xtra (Jamz Supernova), and playlisted across Spotify and Apple Music’s largest playlists such as POLLEN, Ultimate Indie, Alt R&B, and The Plug.
Now living in Brooklyn at 20 years old, his sound fuses jazz freedom and R&B rhythm while pulling between indie, hip-hop, and lo-fi music, creating something all his own.
