Treasure has been unearthed on the streets of Manchester, and the city has given birth to a new, whip-smart, street-savvy voice of late-teen thrills, spills, and taken chances in the form of the 16-year-old songwriting sensation, Alex Spencer. His rebellious and rousing debut EP, 'One Step Forward,' marks the emergence of a prodigious talent with an unmistakable flair for storytelling through music.

Alex Spencer burst onto the scene in the spring, making waves with his debut single, 'A Night To Waste,' released under the hit-making indie label, Modern Sky. The eventful year for Spencer, encompassing exams, leaving school, gigging, and multiple releases, culminates in a triumphant support slot for Jamie Webster at a SOLD OUT O2 Victoria Warehouse on Saturday, November 18, followed by a celebratory night headlining his home city’s ornate Deaf Institute venue on Friday, November 24.

The debut EP, 'One Step Forward,' showcases Spencer's youthful take on life, infused with sounds inspired by long-term musical loves, including Sam Fender and Arctic Monkeys. The five tracks on the EP, including the latest single and title track, 'One Step Forward,' along with summertime hits 'One Way Ticket' and 'Do What I Wanna,' provide a glimpse into Spencer's world of energetic anthems and introspective musings. The EP also features the yet-to-be-heard, but eagerly anticipated crowd-pleaser, 'Waiting For The Change.'

Growing up on the streets he now conquers, Spencer's fearless exploration of his musical potential started at the age of 12 when he ventured out with his guitar to perform in Manchester city centre. His journey gained momentum after signing with Modern Sky at the turn of the year, joining the ranks of artists like Miles Kane, Lottery Winners, and Brooke Combe. Spencer's rise included notable bookings at major events such as Sound City and the inaugural Beyond The Music celebration in Manchester.

In the midst of this whirlwind, Spencer found himself in the esteemed company of a prodigious band of equally young, enthusiastic, and talented musicians. Together, they electrify stages with their dynamic performances, leaving audiences captivated by the infectious energy that defines Spencer's musical persona.

Gathering accolades on the very streets that shaped him, Spencer has garnered support from none other than Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham. From the intimate beginnings of a 12-year-old kid with a guitar to the present day, where Spencer's tracks are featured on radio stations like Eirewave's in the show 'The Next Big Thing,' his journey is not only a testament to his individual talent but also a celebration of the vibrant musical landscape that Manchester continues to nurture and share with the world. As Alex Spencer continues to make waves, his name is destined to become synonymous with the next generation of musical brilliance.
