So Billy grew up going to McDonalds with his family. He absolutely loved the Kid's Meals and playing in the indoor playground when he visited the dining room. His family would make a trip through the drive-thru a few times each week and Billy's appetite for McDonald's french fries grew into a passion.

As Billy became a teen, he began experimenting in the kitchen with his own cooking of burgers and fries. His parents were intrigued one day when they smelled the aroma that spread through the house. His dad popped in and asked Billy what he was up to while seeing a basket of home cooked fries laying out on the counter. He sampled one. "Wow. These taste pretty good son. You made these yourself?" Billy nodded. His dad mentioned an upcoming county fair food contest that he should consider entering his food recipe because it was pretty good for a young teen just learning how to cook in the kitchen with no training or classes.

Billy took the chance and entered his best dish along with over 100 other teens in the county. The judges each sampled the entrants food and eventually selected Billy's as the runner up to an older teen who had been cooking for years and had formal training in culinary arts. The 2nd place finish earned him a $100 gift card. Billy was encouraged.

His friends and family were equally impressed and suggested he take his recipe and enter a national cooking contest in the big city next to his small home town. Billy did it. Out of over 120 other cooks Billy was the youngest and, like before, ended up 2nd place out of all of them, with a 27 year old taking first place. The judges praised his ability and skill in culinary arts at such a young age.

Billy was encouraged.

With the help of his parents, Billy asked if he could offer some free samples of his recipe to people from all around to see if the public, too, would appreciate his food. So the family set aside enough money to buy the ingredients and began to help him make up sample size meals that could be reheated and taste like it was fresh from the kitchen. They advertised on social media that he had the free samples available and to his amazement, thousands of people came and tried it out. Many came back throughout the week for more samples because they really liked it.

The family was a bit shocked. What was a casual experiment was looking like a promising future for Billy if he wanted to keep working at it. So, the family decided to focus more on Billy's skills in the kitchen and began to reach out to places beyond their county and state to see how his recipe would fair with other public members. Like before, they loved it. Except this time, the time, investment and people needed to keep up with the demand became quite expensive and the family needed to find several volunteers to aide in the process of simply making the recipe and many more volunteers to help deliver it to the distant locations.

Billy's parents couldn't continue to support providing the samples without having some way to get some sort of return on the investment. So Billy set up a website and offered for the public to buy his recipe for $1 per portion. Some people loved the recipe enough to buy 1, 3, 5 and even 10 portions at a time. But once the free samples were gone and he started charging for it, the demand dropped. Orders were very few.

Billy talked to his dad.

"I don't understand. When we were giving samples away, so many people came and got them and kept coming back. They all told me how much they loved my recipe. We even had a few calls from major restaurant chains in the country asking if I would be interested in coming to work for them as a chef. But now it looks like nobody is buying anymore and I'm not getting those calls," he told his dad.

Billy's dad decided to talk to a few restaurant and food company executives about how Billy could take his recipe and make a career from it. They, like the ones early on, all felt his recipe was unique and they could see how it would be accepted by the mass public. This excited Billy and his family. But when it came down to possibly hiring Billy, none of them offered. A few asked if he'd be willing to give them his recipe for free since they could handle the man power and money it would take to handle the demand that would happen once they announced to the public that Billy's recipe would be available in every city in the country. But Billy's parents refused to let his recipe be taken for free.

One day, Billy was in the local grocery store and saw shelves and shelves of premade food that looked similar and was made from very similar ingredients. It was then that he realized maybe he needed to change his formula a little since it seemed that he had competition that he didn't know about before. Billy tweaked his formula and sent it out as a free sample again.

And again, like the beginning, the public loved it and the demand skyrocketed for free samples. The family felt surely that this time they could keep up. The dad left his job and focused full time helping his son keep up with producing his new and improved recipe. They borrowed money to buy the ingredients and had to hire a few part time employees to help keep up with the deliveries since the volunteers they had from before were burnt out and not able to help again.

The newspaper and several culinary magazines did a few articles about Billy's recipe and his popularity spread around the country and even overseas. The internet and social media helped him find new potential customers for his recipe. However, the followers and friends on social media also loved the recipes of a few other young chefs like Billy and because those others were also just starting out and giving away their recipes for free, Billy was unable to convince most of them to buy his recipe when there were so many others willing to give theirs for free.

Billy was frustrated.

One day the phone rang and The Food Channel was calling and asking if Billy would be willing to feature on their weekly TV show "YOUNG CHEFS". Billy was shocked but humbled they would even consider him. His parents researched it and saw it as a great opportunity to show the whole country why his recipe was good. Surely, then, the viewers of the show would become customers for Billy's recipe.

Billy was still in school and doing his best to balance being a student and trying to work on becoming the best young chef in the country knowing the TV would give him the exposure. He worked it out with his school to finish his classes online so he could focus full time on making his recipe and traveling to the TV show. He left his friends and family and had to learn how to focus on his cooking more than what normal teens would be doing. The family supported him but they had since lost so much money they weren't sure how to keep his dream alive. The cost of travel and the ingredients and being on the TV show weren't possible to cover from his mom's job alone and the TV show wasn't offering him a paid role, but just all the exposure. It was their way of justifying not paying him or covering his expenses.

Before long, Billy's popularity became even more than ever before. Billy's Recipe became well known.

One evening, Billy's dad sat him down to explain that in order for Billy to continue trying to be a chef, he would need to find a way for his ingredients and travel to the TV show to be paid. Billy was doing all he could to finish his classes, be in the kitchen and still send out free samples to keep people interested in his recipe. He had already tried many times to ask the public to buy his recipe, but each time, they refused.

So Billy had to make a decision.

He would either pray his dream of becoming a chef which could support the costs for ingredients and the staff it would take to make the recipe would miraculously happen, or he would have to go get a job that would not allow him the time to make his recipe anymore.


This is what it's like to be an artist in the music industry.

So this new album has 5 songs never released until this album and 5 songs that had previously been released as an EP before.

Two songs, SONG FOR LOVE and RUNWAY, were the most Pop R&B sounding that I released. However, there are two other songs I've not really talked about except at concerts.


This song is actually a cover song that was originally released in 2010 and written by the great producer Chuck Butler (who also recomposed the song for me and recorded with me at Sony in Nashville). The lyrics seem to be obvious if you listen, but they were impacting to me because I know a lot of people use words to hurt one another or to get back at each other in arguments. Especially on the internet, I find a lot of times when people comment or post words, they can be misunderstood or misinterpreted. I think it's sad that we don't choose to find words of encouragement and try to use our ability to speak LOVE instead of hate. Martin Luther King Jr. has been quoted a lot recently with his official holiday and also the movie SELMA that came out the past month. He used words to encourage, challenge and bring light to injustice. But sometimes people use words to bring about harsh judgment, hatred, insults and things that are not from a place of LOVE. I like this song for a few reasons. It's music arrangement is pretty good to dance to and the lyrics actually are important to me to share with other teens and young adults. Our words can either be fruit or poison, we can always choose what we say. Nobody but us is in control of our words.


This song is the first one I wrote that was intended to be more of a worship style and has lyrics that talk about how easy it is to get so caught up in your own life that you forget there are people around you that may be going through something equally or worse than you think you are. Having a heart which is focused on others and their well being is something we should all be focused to do. Our choices should be to care and love on others versus being self focused. The bridge of the song lyrics is my personal prayer about having a fire inside of me that takes over and oozes LOVE toward others. That's where I want to make sure I don't get so self-focused that I overlook the hurting ones around me. I like this music arrangement because it is still pop R&B but more laid back.

This album has been helpful to build my confidence and skill as an artist and song writer, but I always want to make sure that the reason why I choose to include certain songs or lyrics in my music can be something I share outside the paper sleeve in the CD case which has them printed out.

      Kendallville, IN – December 5, 2014

      18 year old singer and actor, Spencer Kane, has been nominated in the Next Big Thing
      category for the 2015 We Love Christian Music Awards (www.WeLoveAwards.com).

      This is the third overall award nomination for Spencer since 2012 and 2013 when he
      was competing for Best Pop Artist at the All Indie Music Awards in Los Angeles. As a
      first time nominee at the We Love Christian Music Awards, he will be competing against
      four other emerging artists, but is unique in that most are adult groups.

      “Being a teen artist in the Christian music industry is pretty uncommon, so to be
      nominated means that my music must be making some noise out there,” stated
      Spencer. “I’ve been working hard creating music and touring the past two years and
      this is kind of a stamp of approval to be noticed this way. I’m honored,” he added.

      Essential Records and iShine founder, Robert Beeson, commented, "It is rare to come
      across an artist that fills such a huge, huge hole in our industry. It is rarer still to find
      one who has all the elements needed to fill that hole and more importantly also has a
      sincere heart for the younger generation that obviously are resonating with his music.
      Spencer deserves the attention that is coming his way and this nomination is testimony
      to thousands of fans he is reaching."

      Spencer released his second studio project titled “Runway” in September 2014 with
      tracks produced by Grammy winner Tyshane (“Gravity” by Lecrae in 2013) and
      multi-platinum and Dove Award winners, Jeff Savage and Chuck Butler. It was his first
      full length album and features the title track “Runway”, which is gaining national
      attention on Hot AC format Christian radio as well as many online stations. His music
      and live show resonate with youth who love Pop R&B combined with choreographed
      dance while maintaining a lyrical message based on his Christian faith. Having spent
      2014 touring around the U.S. and performing over 40 concerts while maintaining his
      high school class work, he will add more dates to his calendar in 2015 with two
      different tours and several festivals.

      The We Love Christian Music Awards are given to the artist with the most fan support in
      each category through a voting portal at the awards website. Winners are announced
      during the February tour of The Rock and Worship Roadshow in 2015.

      Indiana based, Spencer Kane (www.spencerkanemusic.com), has been writing and
      performing music publicly since 2010. His debut single “Best Friends” was released in
      May 2011. In June 2012, he joined the cast of the TV sitcom iShine Knect on the TBN
      Network as a regular character as well as the iShine Live music tour each Spring and
      Fall. He is currently working on new music and filming music videos to support his
      newly released album, “Runway”. He has been asked to join The Millennial Tour
      (www.TheMillennialTour.com) in 2015 as well as continue his role on the iShine sitcom
      and tour.

      Although I released it as a single earlier this year, FAVAH is one of my personal FAVAH-rites. (not funny... ok, sorry).

      I co-wrote the song with one of my music mentors, Jor'Dan Armstrong. Jor'Dan's music has influenced me for a few years and being able to work with him on three of the tracks on the RUNWAY album was quite amazing. He and his production partner, Tedy P, were amazing to work with in the studio. Jor'Dan likes to sit with a track and just wait to see what God gives us for melodies and improving lyrics. I usually write out lyrics to a song and then when working with Jor'Dan, we get in the vocal booth in the studio and just see what happens. It's kind of weird at first because it really isn't singing actual words into the mic, but more like "Da da da" or "La La La" or some vocal mumbles that are similar to words but not really words.

      It's the same process used by a lot of famous artists and I'd never known it until one of my producers in Nashville shared this Michael Jackson studio session for his song Billy Jean. Notice how the verses have fragments of words but mostly just gibberish in place where words would go eventually. It's the process to learn a melody or experiment with a melody. It's odd when you first do it, but since I've done it, it's how I actually work best in the studio with my songs. A lot of times I end up changing a lyric or entire sentence in the lyrics after playing with melodies like this.

      I have some video footage of us doing this in the studio with Favah and Song For Love, but nothing I can share (unfortunately).

      Anyway, this blog was to share a little insight into how I recorded Favah and we developed the melody and words. It's like I knew what I wanted to have initially, a song about how thankful I am to God for giving me favor and blessings all the time, but how we actually wrote the verses and chorus was something different than I'd ever done before. I ended up using the same method on Song For Love and Runway with Jor'Dan in the studio and I think it just gives a lot more authentic artistry than having a sheet music or just working out a melody on a keyboard. It's like how I get creative in writing new music and songs.

      So now you know.

      I already discussed the title track of my new album "RUNWAY" and how it was based on how I sometimes get afraid of what's going to happen next, but have decided to just prepare for the flight I'm about to take and know it's going to be alright.

      Another song from my new album is called "SONG FOR LOVE".

      This song is cool because the music track came from my long time producer friend, Avery Berman. He produced several of my songs earlier in my career (I WANT THAT, LOVELY DAY, THE CHRISTMAS SONG, WELL DONE) and I have always loved his creativity with music. He shared the music he created for what now is the "SONG FOR LOVE" single from my new album and I immediately loved it. It has a disco / dance vibe to it and I knew it would be awesome to record.

      I shared it with my managers in Nashville and they liked it a lot too. So we decided to record it.

      I went to Atlanta, Georgia and worked with another producer, Jor'Dan Armstrong and his fellow producer Teddy P and together we finished the lyrics and vocals for the track in a couple days in the studio.

      The song is all about LOVE and how life wouldn't be the same without it.

      How could we live without love (repeat)
      If you wish upon a star you’ll find
      Something better than you thought you’d find.
      You will see how much you’ve come to grow.
      Cause love will never let you go, go, go.
      How could we live without love, it just wouldn’t be right.
      That’s the thing about love, you feel it down inside.
      What you think about that, it could blow your mind.
      So let’s quit wasting time.
      And everybody singing like.
      Ohh, you got me singing a song for love. (repeat)
      Ohh (a song for love) (repeat)
      If you ever can’t find peace of mind
      Don’t you worry, that will waste your time
      Here’s a secret that I’ve come to know
      Love will never let you go.
      How could we live without love
      It just wouldn’t be right.
      That’s the thing about love, you feel it down inside.
      What you think about that, it could blow your mind.
      So let’s quit wasting time.
      Ohh, you got me singing a song for love. (repeat)
      Ohh (a song for love) (repeat)
      How could we live without love
      Love will never let you go.

      It's very simple lyrics, but they reflect how difficult some people make life when LOVE is the answer. Wishing on a star will never give you as much as love will. People who are loved and choose to love just live a better life. God is Love, so for me, it's also a simple reminder that God loves me and will never let me go.

      The vocals on this track were so fun to record because it's really the first song I experimented with my falsetto on the main chorus. It was challenging but cool to hear the mix and harmonies afterward. This track, like 99% of my songs, is all my vocals on every part. I don't really use background singers in my songs. I love doing every harmony part and think it's cool to hear the mix when it's done. I honestly want to do more songs like this where I do a lot of layered harmonies.

      We've just posted a live video to this song on my youtube channel.

      We have a cool REMIX of the song available for people who pre-order my album, so hopefully if you're interested in hearing the remix, you'll spend the $4.99 to get the album.

      More back story coming soon.
      Mon, Aug 11, 2014
      I get asked a lot about being an artist and how I started and stuff. I know it's of interest to people wanting to get started on their own path of being an artist, but honestly it's not really like there's a formula or something that you follow and you suddenly become an artist.

      The first thing is to decide if you want to do music because you're passionate about it or if you want to make money doing it. Some people are passionate about it but don't want to make the commitment to earn a living from it. I mean like they love singing in school or at church and think it's something they want to do as a career. But when I've asked some of them to put their singing on youtube so people can critique it, they get all shy about it or are freaking out that they'll get made fun of. It's then that I tell them they are kidding themselves if they think they'll make a career out of it. So, like the first thing you have to do is be ready to deal with haters and people hating on your music and skill.

      Next thing is always remember that there's someone better than you in every way. Someone more skilled, more popular, having more opportunity, more experience, more, more, more. You're never going to be on top. Even the artists who are world famous aren't the best. There's always another artist with more awards, more fans, more albums, more money, etc. Get used to knowing that you're always trying to get better and you haven't arrived. If you can't accept that you're not as good or as bad as others (or yourself) think, you're wasting your time.

      As a Christian, though, I get so many fans messaging and emailing me about my being an artist. Honestly, it's annoying to read some of the messages because while I'm a Christian and try to please God in everything I do, I don't consider myself a Christian artist the way they try to label me.

      I'm an artist who is a Christian.

      I'm a Christian who is an artist.

      Just like a lawyer can be a Christian and a teacher can be a Christian, I'm an artist who is a Christian. I don't consider myself SINGING FOR GOD any more than a taxi-driver would tell people they are DRIVING for GOD. I sing because it's how God made me. I don't specifically consider being an artist as some special category of person who is doing it "FOR THE LORD". I no more say that than an auto-mechanic would advertise "I'm a mechanic for the lord". Of course you want to please God in anything you do if you're a Christian, but I think too many people mix up music and being a Christian as though there is some special category of artist that is reserved to only be about worship and praise music or being on a praise and worship team at a church.

      Simply, being a Christian is a full time job with everything I do in life, not just a prefix before the word "artist". As an athlete, I always tried to have a Christian attitude and treat others like God wants me to. But it doesn't make me some unique category called a Christian Basketball Player. I'm a Christian. It's like we don't label other artists "Jewish Artist" or "Buddhist Artist". Their belief in God is what they choose to be personally. Their career may not involve work within their synagogue or temple. I don't sing in church and don't make music that is for praise and worship. There are many of my friends that are called to be a praise and worship singer. I'm called to be an artist who makes music that my peers will listen to and hopefully have lyrics that encourage them and give them hope to overcome life's disappointments and challenges.

      So, being an artist is what I am trying to be. Being a Christian is what I am. When I'm on a stage performing, I'm performing because it's a gift inside of me given from God. Just the same as an accountant does well with financial stuff because God made them to handle numbers good. When I'm on a stage, the fun I have and enjoyment you see is because I am wired to perform and share the music God inspires me to write. Christians tend to think that just because I'm very comfortable speaking about my faith on social media or sharing my experiences in lyrics that reflect my faith journey, somehow I'm a "Christian Artist". I only have a problem with this label when it comes to the religious Christians who want to judge me or others for "how" I should be as an artist.

      My personal call from God is to love Him and love people. No more, no less. If being an artist helps me fulfill that, then great. If being a pizza maker helps me fulfill that, great.

      So if you want to be an artist, then be an artist. Just know that being an artist is a lifestyle and requires a lot of hard work. Never let people label you or try to put you in a box that they define. Who you are is who you are, regardless of people's acceptance or approval.

      Pleasing God in whatever I do is my goal and so far He has helped me have some impact with music. I hope it stays that way.

      Thought I'd share a few blogs about some of the new songs I wrote for my upcoming album release in September.  I like to give the backstory on why I write certain lyrics and how they were inspired, and the whole process of what it took to make the song and the people involved. It's like the most fun part of doing what I do as an artist.

      We're still figuring out what songs are going to be on the new album, but the ones I know for sure I'm going to talk a little about here.

      The first one for sure is called RUNWAY.

      Written by: Spencer Kane, Jor'Dan Armstrong, Teddy P
      Music by: Tyshane
      Produced by: Jor'Dan Armstrong, Teddy P

      So this is probably one of the most exciting new songs I've done in my short career because it involved some amazing people to get it done.

      You all probably know Jor'Dan Armstrong already from our song "FAVAH" which I released a little while back. It has done quite well in the Christian R&B/Hip Hop genre. I love working with Jor'Dan because he is such an amazing vocalist and producer. Like when I'm in studio with him, he just inspires me and challenges me vocally to give 110%. He is really creative with vocals and I just feel like he understands how to pull out of me the best possible vocals I can give on a track. He actually vocal produced two new tracks on this upcoming project of which RUNWAY is one of them. I'll talk about the other song in another post.

      Teddy P is a wizard at vocal arranging. He hears harmonies and vocal rhythms like nobody I've been around. He's just amazing. Like when I work with him and Jor'Dan, it's like being around royalty. Lol. We all sit in a room and just work through lyrics and possible melodies and hooks for the music until we all agree on something. It's like magical because it just flows. Teddy went to college specifically for vocal production and arranging. He's got a degree in doing what he does with me. He is the music director at his church and you can just tell he is gifted by God to do what he's doing.

      Ok, so Lecrae is one of my musical heroes. I've been listening to his music for the past 8 years of my life or so and just love what he's doing. So when I was contacted by one of the Grammy winning producers from his album "Gravity" I was blown away that they wanted to make a track with me. I spent two days working with Tyshane creating the music for Runway. We did it via skype, so it was quite amazing to work piece by piece with him until we both agreed on the vibe the track would have. He is amazing at what he does and I think the final track you guys hear will show that.

      So, like when I sit to write lyrics for music, I do a few things to get inspired. The main thing I do at first is to think of situations or issues I've been dealing with or know that people are dealing with around me. As you know, being an independent artist can be great but is also very difficult because you're never sure if you're going to be able to afford to continue making music and traveling and stuff. It's very time consuming and costs a lot of money to keep making quality music and touring. So the hope is that you either sell enough music to pay to keep doing what you're doing or that you find a label partner who will sign you so you can keep doing what you love.

      Recently, like the past 6-9 months I've been exploring options to work with some labels and have been given some opportunities that could have really changed my life. One opportunity would have moved me to Los Angeles, which would have been awesome, but it was still a bit scary to know I would have had to move at 17 years old and not even out of high school yet. Again, awesome, but still scary.

      So I wrote this song RUNWAY about knowing that my life could change at any moment because it seems that opportunities keep presenting themselves and could require me to do something completely different than I've had to do so far, or move away, or travel more and stuff.

      The lyrics talk about going through change, but also always being ready to take off into the next phase of your life. I trust God as my guide to help me be ready for change and in the lyrics I really try to remind myself that I've always got God by my side.  Like the Bible says we aren't supposed to get worried about stuff, but it's hard. The Bible says sometimes we go through tests and other times we get blessed. So either way, I just know that I want to be ready for what God has planned. The idea of RUNWAY was like getting prepared for a new direction in life and being ready to go... on the runway ready to take off.

      Here's the lyrics:


      I got my bags packed
      And I ain’t looking back, No
      Ain’t no more living in the past
      I got no time for that
      I gotta do what I gotta do

      Gotta hit that
      Runway, Runway, Ohhh
      I gotta do what I gotta do
      Gotta hit that
      Runway, Runway, Ohhh
      As long as I got you

      Tell me what’s keeping
      Keeping me so stressed
      I gotta give my all
      So I can give my best
      Can’t be afraid of
      What may be next
      Is it gonna be easy
      Or is there a test

      Cause I’ve
      Learned a lot from my past, IQ
      I ain’t ever looking back, Rear View
      Still looking for a change, Brand New
      Hands up to the sky

      Gotta hit that
      Runway, Runway, Ohhh
      I gotta do what I gotta do
      Gotta hit that
      Runway, Runway, Ohhh
      As long as I got you
      Runway, runway
      Gotta do what I gotta do
      As long as I got you

      I won’t be knocked down
      Finish line in sight
      I’m on my way
      Waiting to take flight
      I’ll change my altitude
      Take it to new heights
      Can’t wait another day
      I’m changing my life

      Cause I’ve
      Learned a lot from my past, IQ
      I ain’t ever looking back, Rear View
      Still looking for a change, Brand New
      Hands up to the sky

      Gotta hit that
      Runway, Runway, Ohhh
      I gotta do what I gotta do
      Gotta hit that
      Runway, Runway, Ohhh
      As long as I got you
      Runway, runway
      Gotta do what I gotta do
      As long as I got you

      Well you opened my door
      I’m really wanting to explore
      So show me all the reasons
      That I can’t ignore

      I lift off with an attitude
      Cause I know there’s some things that I gotta do
      See things that I’ve never saw
      Reach my goals whether near or far
      And I’m
      Not gonna leave til I’m done
      I’m taking a trip to the sun
      Cause I wanna be where the stars at
      They’ll look at me like I’m a martian

      Gotta hit that
      Runway, Runway, Ohhh
      I gotta do what I gotta do
      Gotta hit that
      Runway, Runway, Ohhh
      As long as I got you
      Runway, runway
      Gotta do what I gotta do

      As long as I got you

      Anyway, I thought you guys might like to read some background about why I wrote some of my new tracks :)

      I'll post another blog soon with the same thing about a few other songs I know will be on the new album.
      Sun, Mar 30, 2014
      Wow. It's been a long time since I wrote a blog.

      So, for this year so far it's been pretty busy. I know it's already almost April and things have been just flying fast. So this is the stuff that's happened so far this year.


      • Got stuck in a winter storm in Chicago when trying to fly to Nashville for the TV taping of Season 5 for iShine Knect. I was there like 36 hours before I could leave. Had to get a hotel room by myself. Annoying but it was a first experience for me.
      • Filmed the live concert footage for Season 5 of the show with two of my new songs "SPEAK LOVE" and "HEART LIKE YOU". Those won't be seen until like late this year or 2015. lol

      • Drove to Iowa and South Dakota for 6 concerts in one week. It was a lot of fun.
      • Flew to Nashville for pre-production rehearsals for the iShine Spring tour.
      • Had first weekend concerts in St Louis and Oklahoma


      • Finished up the iShine Spring tour on March 10 and finally got to come back home to rest a little.
      • Finished recording #FAVAH in the studio and filming the rest of the official music video for it.
      • Started writing new music for 2 more songs I'm releasing this year. (SOOO EXCITED ABOUT THESE)

      NEW MUSIC:
      Ok, so one of my fav things to do is work on new music and in the studio. I have one new song that is going to be KILLER and I absolutely can't wait until it's done. You guys are going to freak when you hear it. It's like probably my fav music track of all songs I've ever done and the song will be FUN. Think of the song HAPPY by Pherel combined with TREASURE by Bruno Mars combined with some awesome EDM.... and you're there. lol

      #FAVAH is going to be released in April on iTunes and as an official music video.

      I'm SOOO stoked about performing at the concert in Cincinnati on April 4. Mike, my backup dancer, is injured, so that stinks he can't perform with me this time. 

      IN MAY:

      May 10 I'll be performing live in NEW ORLEANS at the Joy Theater on Canal Street. It's a great opportunity as I will be co-headlining with some other main artists. So excited.

      Well that's about the latest update I can give you guys.

      Send me some emails and tell me about what's happening. SPENCER@SPENCERKANEMUSIC.COM

      Tue, Jan 28, 2014
      Ok, so ever since I started putting my music out there on Youtube, I've heard from fans that have said they like it and hope I never change.  When I asked them what that meant, they meant that most artists eventually get stuck up or think they're too good for the fans that helped them get popular.

      Well, apparently some feel that's happening with me. So here, let me just help fans understand the reality of an artist who has a career that is progressing as they hope it will when they keep working at it.

      First of all, there's only so much time to do everything that has to be done to have a career. I can only do so much in a 24 hour day.

      I'm a...

      • Full time student in public school even though I do classes online
        • which means I have homework and studying and tests just like most kids my age
      • Son
        • which means I have a family where I spend time with family and try to have a family life
        • which also means I do chores just like most kids my age. That includes my own laundry, make meals for myself, grocery shop (yes I do grocery shopping), cleaning house, doing dishes, you get the point.
      • Friend
        • I do try to have time to hang out with guys and play Xbox or play sports when I'm not busy doing other things
      • Artist
        • Yea, as an artist I have like a million things I have to do, which all take time
          • practice new music
          • voice lessons
          • guitar lessons
          • write new music
          • record in a studio
          • travel on the road
          • package merchandise people buy and mail it out to them
          • concerts
          • media interviews
          • make Vlogs
          • make music videos
          • chat with fans online (chat, twitter, Younow, facebook)
          • skype calls to classrooms around the world
          • dance lessons / rehearsals
      • Actor
        • which means I have to go to Nashville for TV filming a few times a year and learn scripts and stuff
      So here's the deal. The more I do for my career to get better and perform more, the more fans I am getting. I do my absolute best to find time to talk to as many NEW fans as I can. When I have time, I talk to fans I've talked to before. But it seems harder and harder to find time to do that when my plate is already full of other things.

      I'm not at all complaining about my life and schedule, but I'm hoping fans can understand when I can't reply to their questions or messages on social media. I do my best but I won't apologize if I can't reply right away or at all. Sometimes it's just not possible to keep up with.

      I have a marketing manager who sorts through the hundreds of messages, emails and requests I get each week from fans. Some want answers, some want to chat, some want followed. It's just not possible for me to spend the time needed to answer or respond to all of them. I stopped following and unfollowing fans over a year ago. I don't handle that anymore. I just post stuff.

      The problem is that because I am trying to be friendly and take time to talk to so many people that call themselves a fan of my music, I am assumed to be their best friend or close friend now. I am just me. I am a friendly guy who likes to laugh and chat when I can. I will always be that guy. But if it isn't with some fans as much as they want, I am becoming that artist they said they don't like anymore. A SELFISH AND RUDE PERSON WHO IS STUCK UP.

      Honestly, I'm not apologizing for working hard on my career and the fact that it takes more time now than it did in the past. That's a good sign that things are going better because I have more work. I am not a casual YOUTUBER like a lot of singers. This is my JOB now. It's how I earn a living. It's how I pay to travel and give concerts. It's how I put gas in my car. It's my job. I love my job. I love my fans.

      Before you judge an artist for "changing" or not being the same person they were before, think about "their" schedule and what it must be like having to balance it so they have some kind of personal time to enjoy what they are working hard to be.

      So, I'm sorry that some don't understand all this and jump to conclusions about my character and personality. I am very concerned that I do my best to be humble and thankful for everyone who supports me. I'm just sad that because I can't connect with fans as much as I used to that I'm considered "changed".

      "CINDERELLA" - written by Spencer Kane and Avery Berman
      Produced by Avery Berman

      I didn't know where you came from
      I don't know where you went
      Somewhere between coincidence oh
      And circumstance
      You had a smile like whoa
      Heart of gold
      where are you my heart is cold
      I feel you there
      Right inside
      One day you'll be in my life
      Hold you tight as I can
      So you can't leave again
      And all I want is for you to be

      Slipping on these shoes
      Looking for you
      You're out there
      Out there

      Don't know what to do
      We can't be through
      You're out there
      Out there


      You took me by surprise babe
      How the time came and went
      The universe smiled on us
      But only for a moment
      I can see it now
      Minds eye
      We can be the best pair
      You and I
      Every night
      I see the same things in my dreams
      Plays out endlessly
      I hold your hand
      Hold it real tight
      Your soul lights up the world so bright
      Then I wake up and It's not fair
      I'll find you out there somewhere

      I'm looking for ya (BKG)

      I don't know where you are
      Girl you're out there
      You're out there
      Girl I don't know what to do
      I'm gonna find you
      You're my Cinderella

      Slipping on these shoes
      Looking for you
      You're out there
      Out there

      Don't know what to do
      We can't be through
      You're out there
      Out there

      How about you? What's been the best about your year?
      Mon, Oct 28, 2013
      Ok, so I'm still trying to make new music this fall. I have already committed to making 9 new songs and will still be doing covers once in a while.

      The hard part about making new music is that to make it sound like radio quality, you have to hire people to produce and engineer it. That costs a lot of money. I know I've asked you all to help me, but it has been tough to be a student, have a job and try to raise money to keep doing new music. Some people think when you get popular on the internet that somehow you just have a lot of money and stuff. Unless I sell my music or raise donations to record new music, I can't keep doing what I love to do.

      So I'm hoping when I have concerts this winter that you all come out and support me so I can keep making new music.

      So far, I have the following songs written:




      "JUMP START"

      and have five other songs being worked on.

      The cool part is that I have the opportunity to record some of these songs with some other great artists helping.

      Please check out the music of:

      Jor'Dan Armstrong (especially the song "I'm Down")

      George Moss (especially the song "Hand's Up")

      D-Tropp (especially the song "Misbehave")

      Johnnie Rep (our new collab "Falling, For You")

      And of course I will keep doing music with Street Scholar.

      So that's my update on new music.
      Sun, Sep 22, 2013
      Hey Kaneiacs,

      I'm heading back to the studio to record some new music this fall. I'm really excited about making new music. But it costs a lot of money to record and I'm hoping you would consider donating as little as $1 to help me raise the funds to get it done.

      You can do that going to my fundraising page at


      Just click the CONTRIBUTE NOW pink box and help.

      If you can donate more, there are some things I am offering to thank you. You can see those on my page too.

      Thank you Kaneiacs for your help on this :)

      Wed, Jul 24, 2013
      Hey Kaneiacs,

      I'm excited to announce a cool new way for me to meet you in person over the winter 2013-2014.

      I'm launching a brand new contest where if your team wins, I will be performing in your hometown sometime this upcoming winter season!

      So here's the deal.

      In order for your "TEAM" to win, you need to do three things:

      1. Gather all your friends and work together by tweeting #KaneiacConcertContest and #YourAreaCode. That will start the count and create your TEAM. (example: #260 is my area code)
      2. Get at least 100 different twitter users to tweet the same and your TEAM will be a finalist for me to come and perform for FREE in your city.
      3. Everyone on your team must text the word KANEIAC to 313131 using your cell phone to receive contest updates and to learn who won, the date, time, and location.

      Now here's the thing... they MUST be 100 "different" twitter users FROM that same area code. All 100 will get VIP access to a meet and greet before the concert and get an autographed VIP gift pack from me.

      The date and location information will be worked out and the winning team will be notified as soon as possible.

      So, good luck and get busy tweeting :)

      This is only valid for U.S.A. states and cities. Sorry for my international KANEIACS. Someday I will visit your country :)

      Teen Artist, Spencer Kane, Wins Emerging Artist Contest at Lifelight Festival

      Bethany, MO – June 21, 2013

      Sixteen year old singer and actor, Spencer Kane, based out of Kendallville, Indiana and Nashville, Tennessee (www.spencerkanemusic.com) competed against other emerging national recording artists at the 2013 Bethany, Missouri Lifelight Festival for a chance to be a featured main stage artist at the same festival in 2014. He and his Kane Krew won first overall after each contestant band was allotted a 30 minute set in front of fans, judges and festival organizers.

      Lifelight Festival was founded in Souix Falls, South Dakota 18 years ago and has steadily grown to one of the largest Christian Music Festivals in the United States with over 150,000 in attendance each day. Because of the success in South Dakota, Lifelight expanded to Missouri four years ago which averages 15,000 attendees. This was also the first year of Lifelight Texas located at Al Denson’s ranch in Sherman. Spencer participated in Texas and will be performing twice at the South Dakota festival over Labor Day Weekend.

      Spencer was chosen over several hundred entries earlier in 2013 to be one of the final competing acts at Lifelight Missouri. Each finalist to compete had to submit an audition to Lifelight organizers through various online music event sites.

      Festival Assistant Director, Deanna Barker, was in attendance and commented that Spencer’s performance is exactly what is missing in today’s Christian music market. “I have a 14 year old daughter who listens to his music all the time and couldn’t wait to see him perform live. It was incredible to see how the youth connected with his speaking and performing. I’m so glad we have him at Lifelight and can’t wait to see him perform on the main stage,” she stated.

      Spencer performed with choreographers EJ Ferencak and Jade Ross as well as fellow songwriter and producer of some of Spencer’s music, Street Scholar. They are known as the KANE KREW.

      Lifelight is one of several Christian Music Festivals held throughout the United States each year and is also a member of the Christian Festival Association (CFA). There are 20 participating festivals involved in the CFA and each location holds the same competition with no artist competing at more than one venue for the chance to return for main stage the next year. When the festival season ends each year, all 20 locations submit their winning act to the board of the CFA for them to choose one act to tour all 20 festivals the following year. Spencer is now qualified as one of the choices.

      Aside from his recurring role on Season 4 of the TV sitcom, iShine Knect, Spencer is more widely known as a national pop recording artist. He is a two-time Los Angeles based AI Award Show Finalist for Best Pop Artist in 2012 and 2013 and has a worldwide fan base in over 71 countries. He has been touring with iShine Live throughout the Midwest U.S. this past spring and will continue touring as a solo artist in states from New York to Texas through the remainder of the summer months. Along with a multi-state iShine tour in October, he will perform internationally with a 2 week tour in South America in September. His music can be downloaded online from various retailers and his single "BLUE SKY" was released to radio stations nationwide on June 14.

      ABOUT iSHINE: (www.ishinelive.com)

      I get a lot of people wondering about my social media stuff.

      • Why do I follow or unfollow some people? 
      • Do I have a personal facebook account, not my fan page? 
      • Why don't I reply to tweets? 
      • Why don't I DM? 
      • Do I snapchat?
      • Do I use oovoo?
      • Do I give out my personal cell phone for texting?
      As much as I want to talk to every fan I can, it's not possible. In fact, it's nearly impossible to find time to do much else other than practice for concerts, do YOUNOW broadcasts, work on new music, and make music videos. Oh yea, and somewhere in there I have to find time to do school (year round) online.

      So, to simplify the many questions I get about social media, I will just explain here:

      1. TWITTER
        • Follow/Unfollow:  My marketing manager uses software for the follow and unfollow part. I do NOT follow or unfollow anyone. I only tweet stuff and reply to tweets that I can. WHY? Well, the fact is that twitter is not only a way to stay in touch with my fans, it's also a way for me to get other people to know about my music. It's a way to promote who I am and my music. Because of that, my marketing manager uses software to help find people on Twitter who may like my music. He also uses that software to unfollow people who don't interact with my account regularly and are just wanting followed so they can add to their FOLLOWER count or say that someone verified is following them. They have no real interest in being a fan and so it's like not really a true connection. 
        • Some people's accounts are just for spamming and if they follow me, it artificially inflates my followers and that can look bad because it's not REAL fans. It's just fake accounts. Several artists have this same thing happening and TWITTER is really cracking down on suspending these accounts. In fact, I've had my followers up to 60,000+ at one time and eventually found out a lot of them were fake accounts and TWITTER suspended them. So now my marketing manager is being very strict about who we follow and making sure it isn't fake accounts.
        • We are starting a new thing to make sure my followers are true fans by asking EVERYONE to add #KANEIAC to their profile bio. There is a way for us to know if you keep that there and it will allow us to keep following you so the software doesn't accidentally remove you.
        • BLOCKING:  My marketing manager blocks anyone who spams my timeline with any requests over and over again. You may also get blocked if you are impolite or use profanity in your tweets which include my twitter name.
      2. FACEBOOK
        • I have my facebook page and a personal facebook account (2 separate facebook addresses). I prefer to just communicate with fans on my official fan page. Unless I know you well enough, I don't like to give out my personal page.
      3. SKYPE
        • I have a SKYPE account (spencerkanemusic) where I type chat with fans. I do "NOT" video or voice call fans. I've tried this too many times and it NEVER works out well. I will chat with you on SKYPE but only by typing.
      4. YOUNOW
        • I try to be on YOUNOW.COM to broadcast a chat at least once a week. It's hard to do, but I try. You can join YOUNOW.COM and FAN me on there. If you fan me, it will email you when I'm on and I also TWEET when I'm on. This is the best way to talk to me and see me on video.
      5. ASK.FM
        • I answer questions as best as possible, but will NOT repeat an answer I've already provided in the past. Before you ask, look through my question history and see if my answer is in there.
        • I do not answer questions about my personal life other than things I've shared in public. Things like if I'm dating someone, family member information, personal address, etc. are not things I will talk about out of respect for other people's privacy.
      6. KEEK
        • I do have a KEEK and update videos on there once in a while.
      7. SNAPCHAT, OOVOO, KIK, or other social media or phone apps.
        • I do not use these and won't. 
        • I do not text people my parents don't know personally and their family.
      9. EMAIL
        1. I prefer emails for business questions. If you have a question about how to buy my music or gear or about booking me for a concert, send it to info@spencerkanemusic.com. Otherwise, you can send fan mail to that address as well.
        1. My Spencer Kane Music mailing address is:
          PO Box 273
          Kendallville, IN 46755
      I hope this helps explain things better. For the sake of having some personal time in my busy life, I may choose not to talk on any of these social media programs. It is not that I'm ignoring fans, but sometimes I have to unwind :)

      On June 9, I rehearsed with my KANE KREW and DJ for the upcoming Summer concerts I will be having in several cities in the midwest. We were able to have some studio audience members in the small sound stage at REMEDY LIVE studios in Fort Wayne.

      There were some audio issues the first few songs, so the sound is low, but it is adjusted. This was basically like watching us do a dress rehearsal for the concerts, so there's some stuff that didn't look right and some things we're going to work on for the upcoming dates.

      Please check the UPCOMING link on my website for dates and cities of all my upcoming concerts.

      VERSE 1

      You say he's the one
      And you know for sure
      Yet you change yourself
      You seem insecure

      You try to make it all work out
      And you're listening to the crowd
      You ain't gotta be that way
      So listen to me when I say


      What's wrong
      With the way you are
      You're taking things too far
      (It's like I don't even know you anymore)

      So girl I just wish you knew
      There's nothing wrong with you


      So don't, switch it up, switch it up (repeat)
      (You ain't gotta change girl)
      Cause you are who you are, and it's more than enough (repeat)

      VERSE 2

      You're judged by the magazines
      The TV and Celebrities
      Or the girls that you hang around
      Always saying what you need to be

      But there is something you should know
      The way you think and look, don't let it go
      Cause a guy with a heaven mind
      Wont make you change, or make you waste your time


      What's wrong
      With the way you are
      You're taking things too far
      (I don't even recognize you anymore)

      So girl I just wish you knew
      There's nothing wrong with you


      So don't, switch it up, switch it up (repeat)
      (You ain't gotta change girl)
      Cause you are who you are, and it's more than enough (repeat)

      BRIDGE (RAP)

      I never been the kind
      That gave a mind
      I feel good in my own skin
      Matter of fact
      I ain't trying to be what I'm not
      I'm just sayin, I'm all real
      I ain't playin pretend
      Some like to switch it up and give up
      But they perpetrating theyself
      And in the end you only hurtin yourself
      So stay true to who you are
      You might as well. Stop!


      So don't, switch it up, switch it up (repeat)
      You ain't gotta change
      For no one
      Be who you were made to be, made to be
      You ain't gotta switch it up, switch it up
      You ain't gotta switch it up, no
      You ain't gotta change girl...

      Some of you know I spent several days in the Dominican Republic in October 2012. It was a time I will never forget with fellow iShine artists The Rubyz and Rachel Chan.

      I am asking you to please consider being a partner with Food for the Hungry in their goal of helping kids have food, water, clean bathrooms and getting an education.

      I want to give you a special Gift Pack if you do. I will send you an autographed T-Shirt, CD and Photo when you send an email with a photo of you and your family holding up the photo of the child you sponsored. Share their name and yours, along with your mailing address and I will send my special gift pack as a thank you.

      Even a one-time donation will make a huge difference for the kids I visited in the Dominican Republic.

      I want you to read more about them here


      Talk to your parents about sponsoring a child or even just making a one-time donation. Like I said in my video, it is amazing how blessed we really are and I hope you realize that it's more than just music and having fun at our age. We need to do something to help and Food for the Hungry will be that something you can do to make a difference.

      Lots of my fans ask me to come to their school, but the distance and timing doesn't seem to work out in most cases. So, instead of me coming to your school in person, I can still visit in your class through SKYPE IN THE CLASSROOM. It doesn't matter if you're in ASIA, EUROPE, MIDDLE EAST, AUSTRALIA, SOUTH AMERICA or CANADA OR MEXICO. I can Skype into your classroom.

      I will talk to you and your class via Skype about BEING KIND as the best way to stop bullying. Lots of schools have had me in their classroom using this method and I hope you consider talking to your teacher or counselor about it.

      To learn more about how it works check it out here.

      Hope to see you in the classroom soon :)

      This is probably the COOLEST new way to keep in touch with me and everything I have going on. I know most of you read my tweets or have fanned me on Facebook, but NOW you can find out what I'm doing VIA TEXT to your phone.

      It's easy. It's FREE. Just text the word

      KANEIAC to 313131

      and you're subscribed to my exclusive text updates. When I say "exclusive" I mean that you'll get information before any other public social media. You'll be the first to get new merchandise, songs, watch new Music Videos before anyone else, and a lot of cool other updates.

      And, yes, I am the one texting you an update each time.  But here's the deal, not only can you get updated on where I'm performing, new song releases, or when I'll be on a radio or TV broadcast, you will also get a chance to win FREE SPENCER KANE MERCHANDISE AND MUSIC. Things like shirts, CD's, iTunes gift cards, hats, posters, tickets to concerts, and any other cool prize I can imagine.

      Now, unfortunately, this is for U.S. cell phone providers only. It will not work outside of the United States at this point. We're working on a way to expand this to Canada, Mexico, Asia, Europe, Middle East and Australia, but right now... it's just the U.S.A.


      You just text the word KANEIAC to 313131 and you're subscribed. Every time I send out an update to my KANEIACS, you'll see what it's about.  Some cell phone providers may not include this text method in your standard plan, so check with you parents or cell carrier if the AUTO REPLY to your text doesn't show up within a minute or two. You'll get a quick message from me explaining that you've subscribed.

      I will be sending out an update real soon, so make sure you get signed up RIGHT NOW and you'll be the first passengers on the text KaneTrain.

      I know most of you read my tweets, so I thought I'd just blog about why I post them.

      Just like how I come up with lyrics for new music, I like to tweet about things that I experience or hear about from fans or friends.  A lot of times I am just tired and tweet things that come across my mind. Other times, I find funny sayings or quick jokes that make me laugh, so I post them.

      Sometimes I post lyric ideas and see how you all react to them.

      Sometimes I tweet about what I'm doing at the time.

      But other times I tweet things I hope encourage you guys. I mean, there's like enough things happening to all of us every day that a tweet that makes you smile or feel encouraged is something I hope helps in some way.

      I get asked a lot about some tweets I post. In fact, a lot of the funny tweets are posted to make people laugh, but some people think I'm serious or talking about something that really happened. Sometimes they really did happen to me, other times I'm just being completely silly.  I read comments on my Facebook or replies on Twitter and people are concerned or wondering if I'm ok. I have to laugh because my post was a joke.

      I guess if you read my tweets long enough you'll start to realize I live a pretty humorous life. In fact, between my parents and I, we are always trying to make each other laugh about something. We laugh a lot every day and I want to share that in my tweets with all the #KANEiacs out there :)

      So, next time I tweet something that makes you laugh, smile, think, or just shake your head, be sure to reply and tell me. I know RT and FAVs tell me that some of you are liking them, but it would be great to hear from all of you.
