West Virginia-based instrumental progressive acoustic rock guitar artist Spencer Elliott is joined by Sean Sydnor (bass) and Chris Hudson (drums) on the illuminating tour-de-force of a new album “SE3”, which is due for release on the 8th of April. Spencer started writing music on the piano first as a kid before becoming influenced by punk and rock and learning the guitar. It wasn’t until 2007 when Spencer Elliott came upon using finger-picked progression on a steel-stringed guitar and then his musical heaven was formed. The reason why I absolutely love “Torque”, his new single, is that with his fingering style, you can hear his piano composition roots in all the guitar work – you could play the melodies on both. It is complex, aggressive, melodic and full of groove and I love it.
“Torque” is the lead single from Spencer Elliott’s forthcoming album “SE3”. You can enjoy the live jam music video of the track below. If only I could ever get that good with my chonky hooves for hands! I’ll settle for an album’s worth of this instead though and I’ll be circling back to pick it up for review in April.
