Watch & Listen
Starting out as a fledgling group in the environs of Los Angeles, Daniel David (vocals guitar), Kelly Mead (bass), Seth Jared (Guitars), Jordan Stricklen (Guitars) and Brad Hurst(drums) set out to record a series of four songs alongside the talents of Brett Hestla (Creed , Framing Hanley, Dark New Day) in March 2011. Joining together the unique interplay of hard-hitting rock with the more eclectic tones noted in modern-day rock, Spence emerged on the Hollywood scene having established their talent under the banner of a new tonal range.
Marked by this distinct new sound, Spence quickly attracted the attention of Hollywood's nightlife, playing at a variety of well-known venues, including The Roxy Theatre, The Whiskey, and The Viper Room. While the bright lights and multiple bookings earned Spence a certain level of notoriety, the foursome found the town lacking in possibilities. The growing buzz that was beginning to take hold beyond Los Angeles was largely silenced by a town that was set on molding the group to fit its own brand of artistic definition, a brand that Spence did not embrace as its own. The seduction of Hollywood's myriad nightclubs continued to call, yet Spence found itself increasingly at odds with the city's demands to quell their pursuit of authenticity. It quickly became clear to Spence that honoring their own definition of success would necessitate their departure from the illusion of Hollywood's gleam. Thus the decision was made to reach out to the devoted fan-base that was rapidly growing beyond the borders of Los Angeles.
Today, Spence has garnered a broad and devoted fan-base that has re-affirmed their enticing brand of musical authenticity. They continue to pay homage to this devotion by touring various cities across the country, offering performances marked by the original sound that first enticed an audience. While the band's career is still in its infancy, they continue to find inspiration in their fans who have made both their struggles and achievements worthwhile.
