Spencer Burton

Spencer Burton is a singer-songwriter, full-time family man and part-time farmer who lives on his own grid, growing his own produce and raising his own livestock. “It’s a labour of love,” he says. “That’s actually a good way to describe my music. I don’t want to do anything with my music, with my life, with anything that I do that doesn’t involve love. I’ve just gone through so many things in my life, especially with music — I’ve gone from rock ’n’ roll to punk to all this different stuff, folk music — it all boils down to doing what I do because it makes me feel good. My music is a personal thing, just like this farm.”
