A soulful pop- and R&B-influenced singer, Spencer Sutherland came to the public’s attention while competing on the U.K.’s The X Factor in 2017. Following his time on the show, he released his debut EP, None of This Has Been About You.

Born in 1992 in Pickerington, Ohio (near Columbus), Sutherland grew up singing from a young age, and by high school was active in musicals and show choir. He also began performing locally, appearing at restaurants and other venues. Moving to Los Angeles, he further pursued a music career, co-writing and releasing the singles “Heartstrings” in 2013, “Bad Influence” in 2015, and “Girls” in 2016. In 2017, Sutherland gained wider recognition traveling to London where he competed on the U.K. version of The X Factor. Auditioning with Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On,” he ultimately made it through to the live shows. The following year, he joined JAGMAC as an opening act on tour and issued the single “Talk.” He also signed with BMG, and returned in 2019 with the EP None of This Has Been About You, which featured the single “Sweater.”
