    I went to see Elton Lammie play two weeks ago, with his Kitchen Party band (featuring the keyboard player from Blue Rodeo) They tore it up. Amazing musicians

    His voice is off in this song because he usually plays it much faster


    Here's him playing Crossroads with another band, he usually plays solo acoustic. I've probably seen him about 15 times now


    Here he is doing "Hallelujah" just to give you guys an idea of his singing, he hates this song.

    Elton taught this kid (what he didn't already know) They both play lots of free local shows at bars. This kid is going places, wow. I think he's still only 16 years old. Dare I say, the future of blues?


    I saw Spencer's first live performance (with Elton) lass than a year ago, he didn't sing like this at that show, I guess he was nervous. He's come a long way,

    Before you Accuse me... With Elton and Spencer MacKenzie


    I'm gonna go see Spencer play tomorrow

    He's not a friend, but he plays every Sunday at this restaurant just around the corner for my parents, so when I visit them I usually go on Sundays and we go see Elton play. He often comes around from table to table in between sets to gauge the audiences tastes and take requests.

    I shouldn't have said he hates that song, but it's probably his most requested song and it doesn't speak to him in the same way most of the songs he play does.

    He's a great opera singer also. He won a Canadian opera version of American Idol, without any vocal training or experience singing opera. I'll try and make a video of him doing "Time To Say Goodbye" by Andrea Bocelli, next time I see him.


    One of my favourite covers of his, although he plays it faster and with more intensity nowadays.

    . He may not rate with the likes of Rory,Stevie,Muddy etc. but he was just a wee 16 year old boy when he wrote & put out his first full album.Just 17 with this one.

    Absolutely one of my favourite blues tunes ever and this is my favourite version, it just has this relentless rhythm to it...
