Best Foot Forward For Manchester’s Alex Spencer
FROM high street busker to headline star at 16 – Manchester’s songwriting phenomenon ALEX SPENCER today releases his debut EP, ‘One Step Forward,’ ahead of his top of the bill gig at the Deaf Institute, Manchester, on 23rd November.
And speaking of the EP’s lead track, Spencer said, “’One Step Forward’ talks about how sometimes life can take a turn and stop you in your tracks. These things are gonna try and stop you hitting your goal but you just gotta move forward, don’t let it bother you or set you back.”
Growing up isn’t easy, yet Spencer finds the upside to every stumble and misstep, his beyond-his-years lyricism and superheated, meteoric way with melody, fizz throughout the soul-baringly honest, collection of songs.
Also included on the EP are previous summertime singles, ‘One Way Ticket,’ and ‘Do What I Wanna,’ Spencer’s youthful take on life that happens around him and his friends, cut to sounds inspired by long-term loves including Arctic Monkeys, and The Beatles.
With his overground emergence only coming in the spring with the release of his debut single, ‘A Night To Waste,’ Spencer’s eventful year of leaving school, gigging and releasing will come to a head by supporting Jamie Webster, before a celebratory night headlining his home city’s ornate Deaf Institute venue.
The EP is available via all usual digital outlets as well as on limited edition CD, available to buy from www.alexspencermusic.com
