The new kid on the block born Spencer Jackson, hailing from Hagerstown, Maryland. Population 39,728. It’s not New York City, Los Angeles, or the Dirty South, but its home to an aspiring craftsman. A husband and a father of three, simply known by his brethren as “Spence”.
His love for the music came early, at age nine he was already writing original songs and rocking the crowd. His name being chanted aloud during his performances at parties and talent shows became the norm. Even as a child, with limited technology, Spence was determined for his skills to be heard. He can recall vividly using tape recorders, karaoke machines, and instrumentals to lay down his own material.
He's shared the stage with Def Jam recording artist Jadakiss at an illustrious 4th of July event. Spence then was interviewed by DJ Scoob Doo from WRSU 88.7FM, “Banned from the radio show”, and has been featured on the Chris Music Concept video show. He’s recorded numerous radio commercials for sponsors, Step-N-Style, City Stylez fashions, Krazi Kicks, LLC. and a TV commercials for Hagerstown Honda. Just recently he opened for Hip Hop legends Doug E. Fresh and Slick and earned some DC Love from the the Kitty of the City, 93.9's Jeannie Jones.
His recent buzz sparked when his video "Hub City State of Mind", a tribute to his hometown, and a rendition of the Jay-Z and Alicia Keys hit, “Empire State of Mind” would reach over 63,000 views on YouTube in less than three months. Continuing to reach impressive numbers, the video kept Spence in the public eye over the 2010 year. From headline stories in The Herald –Mail, to him landing the cover of Hagerstown’s magazine. Spence has launched his regional take over, as well as his inevitable national campaign.
