Spencer Sutherland (born August 31, 1992) is an American soulful pop and R&B singer and songwriter from Pickerington, Ohio, United States. He released his debut single "Heartstrings" on December 10, 2013 and it was put into rotation on ClearChannel's WNCI 97.9 one week after its release.
In June 2017, he was picked as Elvis Duran's Artist of the Month appearing on NBC's Today show with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford performing his hit "Selfish" live on the program. This became his debut appearance on U.S. national television.
His single "Selfish," released in February 2017, reached over 4 million streams on Apple Music. Sutherland also co-wrote on Timeflies' new EP. In April 2018, he received his first major movie song placement in "Honey: Rise Up And Dance" with the song "Work You Out".
Sutherland was a contestant on the UK version of The X Factor in 2017 and made it through to the Live Shows and was mentored by Louis Walsh as part of the Boys category. He sang Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get it On" in his initial audition and Jame Arthur’s "Say You Won't Let Go" in the group performance. After performing "Who You Are" in the first live show he left the show. This result proved unpopular with the public, with many stating that he was the strongest in his respective category but was at a disadvantage with being an American competing in a British competition and having Walsh as his mentor didn't do him much favour as well.
In 2018, Sutherland released “Talk”. Starting on September 9 of that same year, Sutherland joined alongside JAGMAC to open for the boy band In Real Life on their Tonight Belongs To You Tour across the United States. In October 2018, Sutherland signed with BMG US. He also had his first major music tour spanning from September to November 2018. Sutherland announced his first headlining tour, The Freaking Out Tour, on June 11, 2019. The tour spanned from August 7, 2019 to August 28, 2019, with Justice Carradine as an opening act.
So far in 2019, Sutherland released singles "Sweater", “NONE of this has been about you", and “Freaking Out”. He is releasing his debut EP, "NONE of this has been about you", on March 15, 2019.
