SPENCER MACKENZIE (CAN)
At 22 years of age, Spencer Mackenzie celebrated three 2019 Independent Blues Awards Nominations for Blues Rock CD, Best New Artist and Best Contemporary Blues Song, Niagara Music Awards Blues Artist of The Year, Maple Blues Awards New Artist of The Year, 3rd Place International Songwriting Competition winner in Blues Category, and Toronto Blues Society Talent Search Winner. He accomplished this and recording his new album while completing four years of college as a music major and now honours graduate at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario.
Preach to my Soul, Mackenzie’s third studio album, he pushed the boundaries with his talent, passion, and an incredible team behind the album with Emmy Award Winner and Juno Nominated producer Ross Hayes-Citrullo and Juno award winner Steve Strongman special appearance on Paranoia Blues, and many more talented musicians all giving their incredible talent to this album.
Mackenzie has developed a tone, a vintage sound, a style that resonates and phrasing of a seasoned pro. Music is language. Words matter as do notes. Where they reside in a solo and how when layered they sometimes crunch and distort, at others sing and sting, is where his artistry resides in this new album.
