In what seems like just a short time since his first appearance on Rivenmaster.com, the music and acting career of 16 year old, Spencer Kane, has truly blossomed into a full time lifestyle. Since 2011, Spencer has been pursuing music through recording covers, original songs and posting simple to complex music videos on his YouTube channel. His fan base of a few hundred in his home state of Indiana has now grown to over 50,000 worldwide in over 75 countries.  His music is readily available on all major online download sites like iTunes and Amazon MP3 as well as 30 other e-Stores.  In addition, his first EP was released to retail Christian Stores nationwide in September for physical CD purchase for those who prefer to have an actual product in-hand.

He has performed at over 40 concerts since the summer of 2012 and is booked for two national tours beginning in 2014.  Add a trip to the Dominican Republic with Food for the Hungry, filming two seasons of the award winning TV sitcom, “iShine Knect“, and handling life as a student athlete in his home state of Indiana at a public high school, this kid is one busy young man.

Often traveling back and forth from Michigan to Georgia, I pass right by Spencer’s home in Indiana. On one of my recent trips I was able to catch up with Spencer at the RemedyLive studio in Fort Wayne, Indiana during a shooting of an online television broadcasts.  The people at RemedyLive were amazingly kind to me and gave me a tour of their studio. I also had the opportunity to visit first hand with Spencer and his Manager. Spencer, being the gentlemen he is, took time out of his busy schedule to talk with me and answer a few questions regarding his challenging life as a young artist and his work helping teens in crisis.  Spencer exclaimed;

Spencer Kane Reaching Teens Worldwide with Hope

“The music I write is usually inspired from things I observe at school or talk about with people.

 Thirteen is the age when most kids begin to see change in their own life as well as lives around them. For Spencer Kane, it was a critical year of change that involved his first public performance and making a commitment to stay pure until marriage.

For someone entering the dreaded middle school years, this was an extremely courageous public statement to make.

As an athlete in basketball and baseball, Spencer had always been one of the guys and held fast to his dream of playing college or pro sports some day. An honors student in school and a typical all-American boy next door, it would seem embracing his talent for music and commitment to avoid sexual activities until marriage would be honorable among his peers.

Wrong!  Instead, he became the target for serious bullying and ridicule for making both choices. As a typical jock, it isn’t the norm for a male athlete to pursue the arts like singing and acting. Add to that his choice to wait for his first kiss until the right girl, maybe even his future bride, well, that was simply too much oddity for middle school peers to handle.

After several attempts to resolve the consistent bullying flair ups, Spencer’s parents elected to move him on to another school district. This new school fully embraced Spencer’s talents as both an athlete and artist.

That was 2011. Today, 2013, Spencer is 16 and has come a long way since those times.

“When I look back, I still remember how it felt and how lonely it was. I won’t ever forget that season of my life and still experience some verbal bullying even today. I’m more able to handle it now than when I was 13. I think a lot of kids and teens aren’t as fortunate to have parents who they can openly talk to or don’t understand the help that comes from having a relationship with God to get you through”,

said Spencer at a recent speaking engagement with a local Rotary International meeting.

Having had this personal experience as well as listening to dozens of fans from around the world share their own stories has allowed Spencer to be inspired to write the songs on his latest CD, One of the Kind’ released February 1, 2013 on iTunes and many other online download retailers.

Be One Of  The Kind

“The music I write is usually inspired from things I observe at school or talk about with people. It helps me to want to write lyrics that share the issues most teens face today and hopefully give them a message of hope that things can get better”,

he added.
