After fronting the band Seven Handle Circus for several years, being featured on Conan, People, Paste & GuitarWorld, climbing the Americana Radio Charts, and supporting bands Mumford and Sons, Better than Ezra, and Zack Brown Band, Shawn Spencer ventures into alternative rock, with his new project.
“7HC was a beautiful thing that just kind of happened… we were a bunch of guys who started jamming and ended up with what was quickly becoming a very successful touring career. But in the end it was more than some had bargained for and they wanted to settle down. Me… I’m just not prepared to settle”.
The first move was hitting the studio and making a record with producer Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling producer Billy Hume (Ludacris, Ying-Yang Twins, Infamous Stringdusters).
With Spencer’s knack for big choruses with powerful lyrics and Hume’s history of hard-hitting mixes, the album, entitled Empty Seas, comes out edgy but with that sing-ability that pop music craves.
