The music of Spencer Scholes at once exudes mystery and discovery, inspiration and doubt, hope and a steely determination to overcome. His songs are the stories of a road-hardened adventurer whose zeal, though tested, remains unquenched by a gauntlet of pitfalls and strife. With a voice that swells in a rare balance of strength and fragility, Scholes weaves his message using stunning color and detail, telling tales of real life… with all its pain, intimacy, struggle and triumph. These are the kinds of stories that come from the spirit of a carpenter, a long-distance truck driver, or a traveling troubadour. Spencer Scholes has been all of these in his life. It is this experience that informs Scholes’s depth, wisdom, and sheer magnetism. Bolstering Spencer’s songwriting is his seasoned and unparalleled musicianship. His guitar playing is flat-out mesmerizing, his fingers dance across the fret board with the agility of a water spider on a summer pond. This is not your father’s folk rock, folks. With equal parts power, finesse and virtuosity, Spencer Scholes commands your attention and delivers a point blank shot… straight to the soul.

Spencer Scholes is a classic musical storyteller in the tradition of Dylan and Robert Hunter. He plays with a desperateness that wrings every bit of emotion and meaning out of each note and chord that comes through his guitar. With a strong voice and soulful original lyrics, he reflects the truths of life.

Spencer Schole's music is incredibly powerful, engaging, and even hypnotic at times. He courageously bares his soul when he performs. His lyrics are beautifully crafted with palatable melodies, and his skillful guitar playing keeps you wanting more!!
