Spencer Burton “Further” – Listen

Evolution.  What does that mean?  For Spencer Burton it means starting off in music in the punk band Attack in Black, before moving to a dark country-inspired sound under the anonymity of his Grey Kingdom moniker before adopting his own name for his solo work since 2012.  There’s a further musical evolution that’s obvious in today’s song ‘Further’ which glistens with Indie Rock touches mixed into that folky/rootsy mix.  It makes for something glorious and uplifting.

Spencer Burton was raised in British Columbia, but lives now in Niagara, having swapped city life for a more rural setting that sits more easily with him.  Country roots showing through.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
