Above & Beyond
Over their four critically acclaimed studio albums, along with their acoustic project, Above & Beyond (aka Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki) have continually been celebrated for placing real musicianship and songwriting at the heart of what they do. While their famed club mixes have resonated with the dance generation, the songs behind them have touched fans of all ages across the globe. As influenced as much by Jeff Buckley or Bon Iver as they are by their deep love of electronic music, Above & Beyond’s songs and lyrics have been sung back to them at the world’s biggest stadiums and stages – from The Gorge Amphitheater to Wembley Arena, from Madison Square Garden and the LA Forum to their famed one million people gig at Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro in 2007.
In January 2018, Above & Beyond will deliver their new album ‘Common Ground’, featuring guest collaborators Zoë Johnston, Justine Suissa and the returning Richard Bedford - the voice of festival anthem ‘Sun & Moon’. Jono, Tony and Paavo also head up two record labels - Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep. ‘Common Ground’ will be the trio’s first self-released album in the United States and Canada and, to ensure all fans can get their hands on a physical copy, each ticket purchased for Above & Beyond’s 2018 North American Album tour includes a CD. The tour takes in some of North America’s most sought-after venues including the Los Angeles Convention Center and Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Based in San Francisco, 23-year-old Spencer Brown creates forward-thinking dance music that defies quick-shifting industry trends, carving his fresh take on the progressive space by creating earworms that incorporate authenticity with accessibility.
After Above & Beyond discovered Spencer through his graceful debut release “Chalice EP” on Avicii’s LE7ELS (garnering over 1.5 million listens), they invited Spencer to release on their legendary Anjunabeats with his emotional expedition “Vernal EP” label debut in 2017.
Having received DJ & radio support from Above & Beyond, Avicii, Axwell, Pete Tong, Benny Benassi, Danny Howard, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Gareth Emery, Electric Area, BPM, and more, Spencer is becoming a regular face of Anjunabeats with multiple forthcoming 2017 releases including his 3-track Embarcadero EP and a remix for Seven Lions & Jason Ross’s “Higher Love.”
Outside of the studio, Spencer is no stranger to the road, having made his live debut at Avicii’s 2013 Hollywood Bowl show, leading to extensive North American touring with Avicii and CAZZETTE - all the while studying electrical & computer engineering at the prestigious Duke University (where he graduated with distinction in 2016 in Electrical & Computer Engineering).
With over 10 years of DJing under his belt, Spencer’s live brilliance is rooted in his renovation of the classical ideology focusing on reading the room and defiance of premade sets to create an unparalleled journey, as demonstrated by his 2017 Miami Music Week performance where he played a 2-hour set comprised of solely original productions and private remixes.
His pioneering sets, like his New Year’s Day Newport Beach performance supporting Above & Beyond, have given birth to an ever-growing 2017 touring schedule, which includes appearances at Electric Zoo, Global Dance, and NYC’s legendary Output.
Spencer’s relentless work ethic and production prolificacy, crystal clear vision, and forward thinking compositions forecast a breakthrough as he continues to deliver ambitious performances that can stand the test of time.
