Spencer.’s dewy, sleek vocals carry along honeyed lyrics that illustrate the feeling of a first love, “This the moment that they talk about…”
The 20-year-old genre-defying artist melds R&B with his velvety vocals, hip-hop in his off-kilter beats, funk in his effervescent basslines, and moody indie rock in his reverb-soaked guitar, which he writes, records and produces almost in isolation.

Hailing from Rochester, NY, Spencer. credits the city’s rich and underappreciated creative scene for fostering his growth as an artist. Dropping out of college in the summer of 2018 and relocating to Brooklyn, he gave himself a year to get his career off the ground. “My parents were understandably upset when I left school,” he says, “but I promised them I’d go back if things didn’t work out.” Less than twelve months later, he’d racked up millions of streams on Spotify with the singles ‘Want U Back’ and ‘To Be You’, garnered glowing reviews on both sides of the Atlantic, and signed a record deal. “I don’t think I’m going back,” he says.
