ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The true measure of any artist lies in their talent and, perhaps more importantly, in their pride and satisfaction in their body of work. It doesn’t reside in the artist’s peripheral characteristics—gender, age, style or background—as examples. In the case of 16-year-old blues guitarist Spencer MacKenzie —ignoring the fact that he is barely old enough to drive—listening to his music there’s no denying he’s damn good. His guitar prowess and vocals are strong and are continuing to build with every performance. Spencer MacKenzie is not a phenomenon because he’s young. He is outstanding despite his age.
MacKenzie’s drive and work ethic goes above and beyond that of the typical teenager. Countless hours are spent rehearsing and travelling throughout Southern Ontario each week performing with some notable heavyweights on the blues music scene and earning praise everywhere he goes. MacKenzie has been taken under the wing of many seasoned musicians, many of whom act as advisors and mentors for the young guitarist. In 2013 he won the Niagara Music Awards Rising Star award and was selected to perform at the 2016 Youth Showcase at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
Spencer MacKenzie’s debut recording Infected With The Blues features three original songs and five boldly crafted covers. Of the originals the title track Infected with the Blues was inspired by people assuming that MacKenzie is too young to play the blues and goes on to explain how the music is just running through his veins and that he didn’t choose the blues; the blues chose him. Devil Under Her Skin is a familiar theme and cautionary tale about dating, relationships agendas and having strength to be steered away from temptation. Goodbye Lucille is dedicated to and was inspired by the passing of BB King, one of MacKenzie’s early blues heroes. Infected with the Blues also includes modernized and youthful versions of blues classics, including fantastic renditions of Mess Around, Kissing in the Dark, Jumpin’ from Six to Six, Sinner’s Prayer and All Along the Watch Tower.
Spencer MacKenzie’s debut recording confirms that blues music has a future and that young people all over “get it” regardless of yet having some of the life experiences that the genre so often detail and that the blues is a feeling, one that can’t be denied or suppressed. As MacKenzie puts it, “I got the blues running through my veins, people say I’m too young, that’s a shame.”
