My eight-year-old brother loves pop music (as do I), and so I asked him to listen to Runway and give me his opinion. He said “it has similar vocals to Bruno Mars, the music of Royal Tailor, and the catchiness of Anthem Lights.” I would have to agree with him, and say the Runway is definitely encompasses some of the qualities of the previously mentioned artists/bands.
Spencer Kane’s musical style could perhaps be best described as synth driven pop. The music is upbeat, and the vocals on the album are fantastic (think Justin Bieber/Cody Simpson). Additionally, the lyrics are catchy, positive, and well written. Needless to say, Runway is an all around excellent release! I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Spencer Kane signed by a major record label soon, and have his music featured on soundtracks in the foreseeable future – his music holds all of the qualities of popular major label artists.
“When the rain is falling and there’s no silver lining,
And you just can’t seem to find the light.
When you need reason to help you keep believing,
Let my love be your blue sky.”
– from “Blue Sky”
At the time of release, Spencer Kane was 17 years old. Taking into consideration his age and the style of his music, I believe that he has the potential to become extremely popular in both younger and older crowds.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Runway to fans of Royal Tailor, Cody Simpson, Anthem Lights, and even “Beliebers” (if there are still any out there?). It is a great synth driven pop album – probably the best in this genre so far this year. Spencer Kane is a talented individual, and I for one am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for this young artist.
