Spencer will be playing a few songs from his debut solo album as part of the monthly Shoppes of Crestwood Third Thursday party! You can also catch him later that night at The Nick Rocks!
Spencer Thomas is a born and bred Mississippian living in the state’s capital of Jackson. After putting college on hold (for rock ‘n roll) in 2014, he’s been on the road with Alt-Country band Young Valley singing and playing drums. “I’ve co-written songs with Zach Lovett of Young Valley for about 8 years. I had enough tunes that didn’t quite vibe with the sound of the band in my back pocket that I decided to book some studio dates.”
With spare time off the road and a lot of sock drawer money, Spencer recorded “Hangin Tough” at Dial Back Sound in Water Valley over the course of 2018 with engineer Bronson Tew on bass (and the board), Ethan Frink on drums, and Kell Kellum on guitar. “We approached the record with broad strokes. We wanted to make sure each part made a statement without shifting any focus away from the song. I think you can hear that when listening to the record.”
Hangin Tough will be out on all platforms 6/14/19.
