Teen Artist, Spencer Kane, Nominated for Next Big Thing Award

Kendallville, IN – December 5, 2014

18 year old singer and actor, Spencer Kane, has been nominated in the Next Big Thing
category for the 2015 We Love Christian Music Awards (

This is the third overall award nomination for Spencer since 2012 and 2013 when he
was competing for Best Pop Artist at the All Indie Music Awards in Los Angeles. As a
first time nominee at the We Love Christian Music Awards, he will be competing against
four other emerging artists, but is unique in that most are adult groups.

“Being a teen artist in the Christian music industry is pretty uncommon, so to be
nominated means that my music must be making some noise out there,” stated
Spencer. “I’ve been working hard creating music and touring the past two years and
this is kind of a stamp of approval to be noticed this way. I’m honored,” he added.

Essential Records and iShine founder, Robert Beeson, commented, "It is rare to come
across an artist that fills such a huge, huge hole in our industry. It is rarer still to find
one who has all the elements needed to fill that hole and more importantly also has a
sincere heart for the younger generation that obviously are resonating with his music.
Spencer deserves the attention that is coming his way and this nomination is testimony
to thousands of fans he is reaching."

Spencer released his second studio project titled “Runway” in September 2014 with
tracks produced by Grammy winner Tyshane (“Gravity” by Lecrae in 2013) and
multi-platinum and Dove Award winners, Jeff Savage and Chuck Butler. It was his first
full length album and features the title track “Runway”, which is gaining national
attention on Hot AC format Christian radio as well as many online stations. His music
and live show resonate with youth who love Pop R&B combined with choreographed
dance while maintaining a lyrical message based on his Christian faith. Having spent
2014 touring around the U.S. and performing over 40 concerts while maintaining his
high school class work, he will add more dates to his calendar in 2015 with two
different tours and several festivals.
