How to blah blah blah blah
Dan Spencer was born in the steel city of Youngstown, OH in 1984. At a young age he showed a interest in music with his love for rock n' roll and Elvis Presley. Little did he know that Elvis was only the door way to another world. In middle school he picked up the trumpet and became first chair in the school band shortly after. He held 1st chair for his whole school career. He took 5 years of private lessions throughout school with his biggest feat scoring 7 (1's) at regional band competition. He was also selected in both 7th and 8th to be in the regional honors band.
When high school came along, Dan's interest in music drifted from his virtuoustic trumpet playing to that of contemporary music. He took up the piano and guitar in 9th grade and also began singing. He wrote his first song at the age of 12 and that started a chain reaction. Throughout high school he took piano lessons and began to refine his guitar playing and singing. He began recording his first solo record his Sophmore year of high school under the supervision of recording engineer and producer James Meese. This is where he first found his love for recording engineering. For the next 5 years he was in and out of the studio picking up techniques and learning the tools and trades of recording engineering.
After High School, Dan went to Youngstown State University and eventually found himself in their Dana School of Music. He went there majoring in Music Composition and minoring in Voice. After some time in the program he decided it wasn't where his heart was and left the school. At the same time he was also fronting a popular original band by the name of "The Redlights". Dan engineered and produced 3 records for them along with opening up his home studio to other local bands. He produced locals such as country artist Wendy Wills, rock artist Fanstab Chicago, and pop/punk artist Never Say Forever. Dan's band, The Redlights, eventually demised at the end of 2006 after achieving a regional recording contract and national management contract. Continue reading-->
