Biography

Spanning a musical life with hardcore beginnings (Attack In Black), to the somber strings of his acoustic guitar in his country-folk infused (Grey Kingdom), Spencer Burton is a mainstay musical virtuoso.

Releasing simply under his own name, his new album (and his third solo offering) was produced with Daniel Romano -- it will come out on Dine Alone Records this fall. “I rode motorcycles, long and lonely, fell in with the wrong people, drank everything I could to pass the time and put the pain away,” reflected Spencer of the days spent crossing Canada, culminating the muses and memories that would weave into the stories he’s told on this new album.

Grey Kingdom to release sophomore full-length, premieres single

Grey Kingdom, the solo project of former Attack in Black guitarist Spencer Burton, is set to release Light, I’ll Call Your Name Out “Darkness,” October 2, 2012 on Dine Alone Records. Grey Kingdom will be performing at the Molson Amphitheatre with City and Colour on September 12. Advance copies of this new CD available for purchase at the show prior to the official release date.

This will be Burton’s second full-length record since adopting the moniker Grey Kingdom in 2010. Since his debut, he has released two digital 45's and The Weeping Suns EP (March, 2012); recorded with multi-JUNO award winning City and Colour; and toured as a supporting member of the band for the Platinum-selling release Bring Me Your Love.

Grey Kingdom beautifully showcases Burton’s talents as a musician, singer and songwriter. His lyrics resonate as a sincere, personal testimony. His folk inspired melodies and stripped down acoustic approach are enhanced by the addition of strings, steel guitar and haunting harmonies -- the perfect backdrop to his touching tales of love, and love lost.

The unveiling of Light, I’ll Call Your Name Out “Darkness” will see Grey Kingdom venture out on a Canadian tour with Juno Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter Old Man Luedecke later this year (dates below).
