Storyteller of his travels and touching tales of love lost, Spencer Burton has reached a new level as a folk styled raconteur under his moniker Grey Kingdom. With his sophomore full length album, Light I’ll Call Your Name Out Darkness, released in October 2012, Burton’s record is now receiving a vinyl LP format just in time for his appearance this summer at Wolfe Island Music Festival, where he performs the afternoon of Satuday August 10th.
His developing years in the music scene of Welland Ontario transpired into Burton embarking on expansive tours with critically acclaimed band, Attack in Black. These experiences are manifested within Burton’s lyricism, in songs such as Imminent Failure where he sings, “I’ve become a restless wanderer, who finds no hope in a home.” This line, and the overbearing restless mood of the song eludes to his musical-wanderer mentality which he has come to embody, becoming one of Canada’s great up-and-coming folk singers, writing of his life, his love, and his experiences across this vast country.
