Peter Spencer / Press

“A seasoned professional (and) a gifted lyricist with a sharp eye.”


“Peter Spencer shows a maturity and depth in his songs that’s lacking in all too many today.”

Dirty Linen

“You’ll love this dinosaur.”

Folk Roots Magazine, UK

“Spencer writes highly creative lyrics set to catchy melodies on topics far removed from those trampled by most contemporary singer-songwriters. ‘Streets of Montreal’ should become an instant classic.”

“Peter's deep, soulful guitar is something you gotta hear.”

Robert Horn - Washington Blues Society "Bluesletter"

“I dig your style a lot as it reminds me of guys like Tom Rush or Dave Van Ronk, all those folk blues revivalists active in the sixties. You understand the blues tradition but make it sound fresh. Your guitar playing is elegant and tasty plus your vocals are deep and enjoyable. I like both albums very much!”

Przemek Draheim - Radio Sfera

“Everybody Danced" is as gloriously mournful a slice of modern folk-rock/Americana as has been heard this decade.”

Steve Simels - PowerPop

“Sweet acoustic blues! Peter's vocals and guitar-playing are a paragon of excellence. The keyboard work on several tracks by Dave Bristow...nicely rounds out the sound. The songs were all penned by Peter...a pleasing meld of folk and blues that is as fresh as a new day and a few straight blues tossed in for good measure. From the opening of "Went Too Far Blues" to the fast finger work on "Root Man Boogie" or the solid "Never Do Right Blues" Peter's got it going on. I found the minor chord groove in "The Afterwhile" almost hypnotic and the hidden bonus instrumental track I call "Walking 'Round the Bend" clearly shows off Peter's abilities with a melody.”
