BAR365 5pm-8pm: Spencer Batt

Born and raised in the hop fields of Idaho's Snake River Valley, Spencer Batt's earthy sound is a direct product of his upbringing. Much time was spent sitting in the back of his father’s pickup truck listening to 60's and 70's rock 'n roll while cruising through the fields. It wasn't until dropping out of concert band and piano lessons that he found his love for guitar at the age of 16. From there he would go on to the University of Idaho where he would start his first band Clearview, and begin the path of singer/songwriter. Upon graduation, Spencer found himself without a proper job secured, but was scraping by playing music. This free spirited attitude turned out to be the catalyst that would ultimately lead to the incarnation of Boise based band Soul Serene. After 4 years of hitting the local scene and touring the northwest, Spencer returned to the University of Idaho to complete a master’s degree. Upon graduation in May 2014, Spencer once again decided to forego a “traditional” career and returned to music. Since then he has played nearly five hundred shows, crafted tens of songs, and has smiled more than the average guy should. Spencer plans to continue his quest in the music business, and hopes to release his eponymous debut on his own record label, Fargo Road Records, in 2016.

Opening act: Andy Byron & Dan Costello

Searching for the shaman that lives inside the guitar has led Willy Porter on a musical and personal odyssey spanning over two decades, 10 albums, and multiple continents. His journey remains defined by an independent drive to evolve as a musician and human, affording him the freedom to create the next song on his own terms. Equally accomplished as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Porters songs weave a universal perspective about the questions, struggles, and triumphs of human existence. His live shows are guitar driven events- equal parts grit, soul, and muscle -that are electrifying, dynamic, and wholly original in the way that Porters voice blends and fuses with his virtuoso fret work.

On his latest disc, Human Kindness (2015), Porter brings all of his acoustic, electric, and multi-string chops to bear in service of a great collection of songs. This al-bum is a driving, tuneful return to the pop sensibilities of his best work that also showcases Porters growth as a writer, musician, and producer.

Originally from Pocatello Idaho, I moved to Nampa, Idaho in 1971 after being adopted. From a young age, I’ve always found comfort in music and used to lie awake at night creating symphonies in my mind. In the sixth grade, I joined band class and played trombone, starting a musical journey that has lasted til present day. After getting my first guitar at age twelve, I didn’t realize that putting it down wouldn’t be an option. After a few early lessons I took to teaching myself to play many styles. Somewhere along the way I started singing. I’ve been in a few bands including The Decade Blues Band, SoundHawk and most recently RoundHouseAnthem. Now, performing solo and song writing are my passion. Music has allowed me to express my thoughts and feelings about life and living.

She has traveled the world extensively as a member of The World Orchestra. In her free time Lindsay enjoys playing with her pekingese named Wolfgang.

The Sapphire Room | Glen Phillips

 

 Andy Byron's Americana Music Series:

Glen Phillips


Doors Open at 6:00pm; Show at 7:00pm

General Seating: $25 
Preferred Seating: $35 

PURCHASE TICKETS HERE

Opening acts: Andy Byron & Lee Penn Sky

Glen Phillips started his first band, Toad The Wet Sprocket in Santa Barbara at age 15. It was that group's third album -- the jangling, orchestral Fear -- that truly broke the group, garnering heavy radio play with the singles "All I Want" and "Walk on the Ocean." After three years away from the recording studio, Toad returned to the mainstream with Dulcinea, which again found one of its singles, "Fall Down," in heavy radio rotation. After six albums and a substantial string of hits, the group disbanded in 1998.Phillips began touring as a solo act after Toad the Wet Sprocket's demise, and has released 5 solo records and two EPs, collaborated on two projects (Mutual Admiration Society and Works Progress Administration), released an EP with Plover (with Neilson Hubbard and Garrison Starr) and an album as RemoteTreeChildren (with Portland's John Askew).

In 2006, while supporting the Mr Lemons album, he also toured North American with a reunited Toad the Wet Sprocket. Toad has toured off and on since that time, and in 2011 played 70 shows and decided to begin writing for a new album, to be released late in 2012.  Glen is currently at home except for a long weekend of shows each month, and is writing songs for Toad as well as future solo releases. He still lives in Santa Barbara with his wife and three daughters.
